Portable Generators in Everett

Emergency Backup Power for Peace of Mind

Sometimes a brief power outage is just one of life’s little annoyances. If a storm knocks out power to your neighborhood for an hour or two, you can often make the best of it. But what if the outage stretches on and your phone is dying, or the food in the fridge is approaching unsafe temperatures? With a portable backup generator, you can be prepared to power any truly necessary appliances in the event of an emergency. When you call Switch Electric, our electricians in Everett can help you understand the benefits and limitations of this type of backup power and recommend a portable generator to suit your needs.

What Is a Portable Generator?

A portable generator is a gasoline-fueled engine that provides power for essential appliances in an emergency. Because it runs on gasoline, it should be placed outside during operation to avoid unnecessary inhalation of fumes, and it should only be used when you are home to monitor it. Once you have started it up, you can run extension cords from the generator to the appliances most in need of power. For extra convenience, our experienced technicians may be able to run a line from your circuit breaker panel to a designated generator receptacle. This allows you to run power from the generator to the panel and switch on the circuits you need.

You may opt for a portable generator because:

  • It is more affordable than a whole-house generator
  • It provides peace of mind for true emergencies
  • You do not foresee extensive electrical needs during a power outage

The main appeal of a portable generator is its lower price point. While a whole-house natural-gas system can keep you fairly comfortable during a power outage, a portable backup generator will still provide enough energy to run the bare essentials—and sometimes that’s all you need.
