Permanent Generator Installation
Southern Reliant Electric, Inc. can can also install a permanent generator for your home. After gauging the power usage of your home, a generator of proper wattage can be installed at any location on your home with either a manual disconnect or an automatic transfer switch. The manual disconnect would require you to go to the location of the disconnect during a time of power loss to switch your home from primary power to generator power. The automatic transfer switch monitors the flow of primary power to your house. Once a loss is detected, the automatic transfer switches your home from primary power to generator power and starts the generator. When primary power returns, the automatic transfer switches your home from generator power back to primary power, and sends the generator into its shutdown sequence.

Southern Reliant Electric, Inc. can install attic ventilation fans for your home that can save you money over time.
"Almost all residential roofs receive significant solar exposure in the summer. Without proper ventilation, intense solar radiation can drive roof and attic temperatures above 140° F. These high temperatures make cooling systems work harder.In the winter, good attic ventilation is needed to remove moisture from the air to minimize moisture build up and condensation damage to insulation. Condensation damage can significantly reduce the R-value — the ability to resist heat transfer — of the insulating material and increase heating and cooling costs.Good air circulation requires a balanced ventilation system that utilizes the stack effect, which is caused by differences in air temperature between the lowest and highest vent openings.The term stack effect comes from the way an old-fashioned stove works. Cold air is drawn into the hot stove by the temperature and pressure differences created by hot air in the stack. The cold air is heated and rises to the top, pulling more cold air into the stove."Source: Reliant Energy
Adding ceiling fans to your home not only adds beauty and value to your home, but can help lower energy costs. Setting your fans to the proper direction according to the season can either help keep the cooler air down low while pushing the warm air up away from living areas or can keep the warmer air in the living areas while pushing cooler air upwards. Southern Reliant Electric, Inc. can install ceiling fans virtually anywhere you can imagine to be controlled as you wish.

- Focus lighting for reading
Adding flood lights or security lights to your home can add lighting to the exterior of your home for many applications from lighting the back porch to adding light for your exterior security system.

(Note: The lights displayed are not the only styles, designs, or colors available for flood and security lighting. Many designs are available for each.)
