How Do Generators Work?
Generators are a vital component in maintaining power during outages. But how exactly does a generator work?
The process begins with an engine powered by fuel, often gasoline, propane, or diesel. As the engine runs, it turns a rotor within an alternator. The rotor creates a moving magnetic field around a coil, which in turn induces an electrical current. This current is then directed to your home or business, powering your essential appliances and devices.
Types of Generators
There are several types of generators we install in Denver homes, each with its own unique features, benefits, and ideal use cases.
Some of the most common generators include:
- Standby generators: These are permanently installed units that automatically kick in when a power outage occurs. They offer a higher power output, making them an excellent choice for commercial spaces or large homes. Standby generators typically run on natural gas or liquid propane.
- Portable generators: Portable generators are perfect for temporary power needs. These generators are easy to move around and are typically used for camping, tailgating, or backup power in small homes. Portable generators typically run on gasoline.
- Inverter generators: Inverter generators are smaller, lighter, and quieter compared to traditional portable generators. They produce clean, stable power suitable for sensitive electronics, making them a great choice for businesses with critical IT infrastructure.
- Diesel generators: Known for their durability and fuel efficiency, diesel generators are commonly used in industrial settings. They can run for extended periods, making them ideal for businesses requiring a continuous power supply.
- Solar generators: These are becoming increasingly popular due to their environmentally friendly nature. Solar generators capture energy from the sun and store it in a battery for later use. They’re great for residential use, particularly in areas with consistent sunlight.
Each of these generators has its own set of advantages and potential drawbacks. The right choice depends on several factors, such as the size of your space, power requirements, budget, and personal preference.
If you are unsure of which system would work best for your home or business, one of our team members is happy to discuss your options with you! Together, we can make sure that you get exactly what you need.

What is involved in installing a hot tub?
Are you thinking about getting a new hot tub? They can provide you a great way to relax and have fun with the people you love. However, you need to make sure that you have the right electrical setup before you try to use your new tub. Some hot tubs are “plug and play” so you can simply plug them into an outdoor electrical outlet. However, most hot tubs require more voltage than normal. This can mean installing a new circuit or upgrading an existing one so that your hot tub will function. Our experts from Blue Sky can take a look at your new hot tub and your existing electrical setup and get everything working well soon.
What should I do if my breakers keep tripping or my fuses keep blowing?
Breakers flip every now and then and fuses blow. It’s only a problem when it keeps happening, either on the same circuit or on different ones. If you have problems on different circuits, the issue may lie in your fuse or breaker box. Get a pro to test it out and see what is going on. If there’s one circuit that keeps causing problems, make sure you don’t have too many high-wattage devices plugged into it. Try unplugging one to see if the problem continues. You may need to plug some devices in somewhere else or install a new circuit to handle the necessary wattage.
What can I do to prevent power surges?
Avoid damage from power surges when you install a whole-home surge protector or use highly-rated surge protectors for all of your important plugs and outlets. If you find out that you are having regular power surges, remove any cheap electronic devices from the system and see if the surges continue. If they keep going, it’s time to bring in an electrical professional to test your system and find the problem.
When should I call a professional electrician?
Bring in a professional for most electrical problems and installations. Working with electricity can be dangerous and it’s not worth an injury just to do it yourself. We know that people worry about the hassle and the cost of calling an electrician. At Blue Sky, we promise to do our work when it’s convenient for you. We also promise to work with you as much as possible on the cost of repairs or installations so you can have a safe, functional electrical system that you don’t have to worry about.
How can I improve my home’s lighting?
There are so many things you can do to improve your lighting. We can install lights that highlight or spotlight certain features of a room or certain pieces of art. We can also install lights so that they are convenient for the areas where you read or work. Finally, we can update your lighting so that it fits in with the look and feel of your home and the latest trends if you care about those. Call us today to make your lighting better than it’s ever been.
Why are my electrical bills so high?
Electrical bills can go up for many reasons. A surprising number of our customers find that their bills go up because the electrical company raises rates. They may notify you, but these notifications are easy to miss. If your company hasn’t raised rates, there are a number of places where your electrical system might be leaking electricity. The best way to find out what is going on in your home is to bring in an electrical professional from Blue Sky to find the problem and fix it quickly.
How can I know that my home’s electrical system is safe?
Perform an electrical safety inspection at home at least once a year. Start by checking your fuse panel or breaker box. Make sure that it’s not overloaded and that there aren’t any loose wires or connections. If you have circuit breakers, flip a couple and make sure the box is working as designed. Next, examine all visible cords and wires. Make sure that there aren’t any exposed wires and that all cords are plugged in properly. Finally, if you have GFCI outlets in your home, check them to make sure they are fully functional.
