Electrical Power Loss Worry You? Add a Home Generator Backup.

Updated: May 14

Knightly Electrical Services had the pleasure of working with a client in Windward, located in Johns Creek. This client contacted us needing help with a home generator installation. When you install a home generator backup, you can rest assured that your home will remain well lit, your appliances humming, and your security systems continuing to work regardless of the storms that come your way from time to time.


As a licensed electrical contractor, I understand the importance of ensuring your home remains a fortress of comfort and security, even in the face of power outages. I offer several options for installing a home generator backup.


How Do You Know Which Option For a Home Generator Backup to Choose?


A Portable (or Partial) Home Generator Backup is one you would plug into a special outlet (installed by an electrician) when you needed it. A Permanent Home Generator Backup is tied into your home electrical system by an electrician. Here are some of the similarities and differences:

  • 1 Gas Furnace

  • Electric Dryers, Ovens, and Water Heaters, if toggled separately by managing power through electrical panel

  • Costs Less and covers much of what you would need during a power outage

Permanent Home Generator

  • All Lights in Your Home

  • All TVs, Computers, Internet

  • Refrigerators, Microwaves, other small appliances

  • Multiple Gas Furnaces

  • Electric Dryers, Ovens and Water Heaters

  • Is more expensive, but covers all of what you would need during a power outage



Weather can affect whether or not you have power. Many losses of power are weather related. In more extreme weather, blackouts can last 24 hours or more.


Is your house using water from a well on your property? Without electricity, your well pump and filtration systems won't be able to give you fresh, clean water for very long.


Do you run a sump pump in your basement? Losing power means you also lose protection against water damage in those areas.


Do you work from your home? If you run a business or work out of your home, you know every minute counts.


Food spoils quickly. It happens in as little time as 4 hours.


Is your area filled with mature trees? The Roswell, Dunwoody, and Sandy Springs areas all have older trees and overhead power lines everywhere. When weather temperatures drop and water starts to freeze, these areas are very prone to power outages when tree limbs fall on the power lines.
