How Does a Home Generator Work in Florida?

Whole-home generator systems are an investment in your comfort and safety. Because of the hurricanes, storms, and other events inherent to our region, we recommend every homeowner in Florida install a whole-home generator to protect their home.

At Certified Climate Control, we'll help you determine the best source of backup power for your home so you have the power you need in the event of hurricanes, storms, floods, or construction accidents.

How Does a Whole-Home Generator Work?

Whole-home generator systems are designed to provide reliable electricity when your power fails. Most systems are connected to your home's natural gas supply, so there's no need to store fuel to keep the generator operational.

When blackouts or brownouts occur, this triggers the automatic transfer switch in the generator. This happens more than you might think, and most of the time, you won't even know it's happened. This automatic process means that it will happen any time of day or night without you needing to do it yourself.

Your whole-home generator will provide the power you need until the power from the grid is restored. When this happens, the generator will switch off.

At Certified Climate Control, our generator specialists will ensure your system is properly installed, connected, and secured. We can also install generator-ready panels, which are essential for protecting your home's electrical network and for properly supporting the operation of your generator.

What Size Home Generator Do I Need?

There are many home generator options on the market, and the choices can be overwhelming. Certified Climate Control can help you select the right system for your home.

We'll perform comprehensive calculations that include the square footage of your home and the type and number of systems you want the generator to support.

Some critical systems you'll want to incorporate in this calculation include:

  • Lights
  • Security systems
  • Medical assistance devices (O2 concentrators, etc.)
  • Appliances (refrigerator, freezer, etc.)
  • HVAC systems (air conditioner, heat pump, ductless mini-split, etc.)

Correct sizing is important for many reasons. If the generator is too small, it won't deliver sufficient electricity and will struggle to maintain your comfort. This leads to increased wear and tear, increased repair costs, and premature system failure.

We strongly recommend working with our team to ensure accurate load calculations for all required systems.
