All About Electric Vehicle Charging Stations!

Monday, July 25th, 2022

More and more homeowners are electrifying their households these days, but that’s not the only way people are embracing electrical power. Electric vehicles have grown in popularity throughout the country recently, and our area is no different. 

Of course, a vital part of owning an electric vehicle is having an easily accessible Electric Vehicle Charging Station also called an EV Charger. Sure, you can get a basic charging package with your vehicle that plugs into a standard wall outlet, but this is a slow and inefficient way to charge your vehicle.

“Do I Need a WholeHome™ Generator?”

Monday, June 13th, 2022

A common question Northwest Washington residents ask themselves is if something like a whole-house generator is necessary for the comfort and safety of their home. The short answer to that question is that if you would like the assurance that your home will continue to have HVAC service, lighting, refrigeration, and even water when the power goes out, then yes, a WholeHome™ generator installation from Barron Electrical is worth your consideration. 

Our Generac and Honeywell WholeHome™ generators far surpass what a portable generator can do. While a portable system can handle one or two appliances at a time, a WholeHome™ system will keep your entire household in operation. Additionally, the WholeHome™ option is safer than a portable system that relies on propane or oil to operate. 

Ask us too about the Silver Shield Electrical Preferred Membership with Barron. With this membership, you’ll receive a WholeHome™ electrical safety inspection that includes checking on all the electrical components in your home to identify common problems such as degraded wiring, oversized fuses and breakers, and much more–all at a $295 value! This also includes comprehensive performance maintenance–an annual multi-point precision tune-up on your solar power inverter, battery system, or Barron-installed Generac or Honeywell generator!

Read on to learn more about the benefits of a WholeHome™ generator then give us a call when you’re ready to schedule installation.

Part of why this is true is due to the increase in home value that solar installations bring. Read on to learn more!
