From its inception in 1857, this Chicagoland city has kept itself relatively remote and secluded from the rest of the Metropolitan Area. Although no longer an exclusive reserve for the rich and famous it is still a city with many open spaces and “wild” countryside. It is slightly more accessible today, but its relatively remote northern location on the shores of Lake Michigan does leave it more exposed to the vagaries of the Illinois weather –particularly during winter. In normal times, its residents enjoy full supply of utilities like water and electricity but, imagine a scenario where a power supply line is down in the middle of open prairie only accessible by a road blocked with fallen snow. How long do you think it will take to get to that site and restore power to the affected neighborhood?

Domestic Standby Power Generation

Because of the semi-isolation, a sensible home owner in these parts will have invested in some sort of home power supply. This may well take the form of one of the popular USA made Generac generators which come in a wide range of options with ratings to suit individual power consumption requirements. Most of these units are about the size of the power plant for a split air-con unit and they can be installed outside close by the house. They usually run on natural gas or liquid propane depending upon your current domestic supply. They are totally enclosed making them not only weatherproof but quiet to run as well. They can all be programed to cut in automatically the moment your main supply fails.

Note – These Are Engineered Technical Machines

A skilled DIY expert may possess the electrical and mechanical abilities and tools to undertake installation, repair and general generator maintenance in lake forest but, for most residents it would make more sense to use the services of professionals. For example, should you select a gen-set from the Generac range, they sell them through fully trained authorized distributors who start by assessing your standby power needs so that they can advise you which size you require. They will then take care of all aspects of its installation including setting up the automatic operation system. After that, you can contract for a regular maintenance program as well as emergency call out repairs.

Chicagoland’s Penco Electric Inc are a distributor for Generac authorized for full service from quotation through supply to ongoing generator maintenance for lake forest residents.
