    The New England winters are not for the faint of heart. The snow, wind, and freezing rain can all lead to fallen trees and downed power lines, disrupting critical electrical service to your home.

A recent AccuWeather article predicts that snowfall for the Boston area will be around 38-44 inches, much higher than last winter and closer to the average of 49 inches.

At McCurdy Electric, we can’t predict the weather 100%. Still, we can help you choose and install the right standby generator to fit your needs and protect your home when you lose electricity.

How does a Whole Home Generator work?

Whole home standby generators are permanently installed on your property and connected to your natural gas line or propane tank. When the power goes out, your generator kicks on automatically via a transfer switch. Once your standby home generator is up and running, it can power vital home appliances, including your refrigerator, temperature control systems, sump pumps, and medical equipment.

What Size Generator Do I Need?

McCurdy Electric will evaluate your needs and ensure that the proper size unit is specified and installed. With today’s technology, a smaller-size generator may be installed to do the job of a traditionally larger unit. This can be accomplished by a smart transfer switch where higher priority loads are serviced first. Doing so may save you money both upfront and in the long run.

At J.P. McCurdy Electrical Services, we have trained electricians to handle whole-home standby generator installation and maintenance. It’s easy to schedule a free estimate and have peace of mind during severe weather.
