Little Falls, NJ (PRWEB) February 14, 2014
Many parts of the country have experienced extreme winter weather, with deep freezes, snowstorms, and icy conditions. Mike DeJoseph, owner of Bloomfield Cooling, Heating & Electric, Inc. in Little Falls, N.J. said that home generator installations have become more popular during the last couple of years as weather events have become more extreme, taking down power lines, flooding electrical substations, and causing extensive power losses throughout the region.
“In the last few years we got hit with Hurricane Irene, a freak October ice-and-snow storm, and Superstorm Sandy,” said DeJoseph. “Millions of people suffered through the aftermaths of those storms with extended power outages, and the need for alternative power supplies have become more urgent and widespread. Our generator business has really grown in response.”
Before last year, DeJoseph said that many people were buying portable generators that run on gas. “However, as we saw with Sandy, fuel is not always readily available after a storm. That’s when more customers started asking about automatic standby generators that run on natural gas,” he explained.
With rough weather conditions in play throughout the area, DeJoseph cautions homeowners about questions to ask about the installer as well as the generator.
Permits are Required
Permanent generators require zoning permits that stipulate the location where generators may be installed. A certified installer will protect the homeowner by performing the required steps involved in choosing and installing the right home generator—and avoid unexpected obstacles problems with the town when it’s time to sell the home.
“Many customers get a rude awakening when they go to sell the house or the equipment breaks down, and they discover they have violated zoning rules and are fined,” said DeJoseph.
An installation permit is also required; towns issue these based on several important calculations the installer performs:
