Standby Power Generators

Standby Power Generators can help maintain your comfort and a relatively normal life during power outages by supplying a totally automatic backup power source to your home.

When the power from your utility company goes out, the standby power generator automatically turns on, whether you’re home or not, and automatically shuts off when power is restored.

Power outages can happen in the blink of an eye…

At the very least, we recommend you protect the following areas/services of your home:

  • Furnace
  • Well Pump
  • Air Conditioner
  • Garage Door Opener
  • Sump Pump
  • Security System
  • Lights
  • Refrigerator

What causes power outages?

Lightning and other weather: wind, rain, snow, heat, cold and ice

Utility equipment problems and grid overload

Fallen trees or tree growth

Animal contact

Human error: underground digging, cranes, traffic and vandalism

Miscellaneous: mechanical damage, construction and fire

How a standby generator protects your home

  • Stage 1

    Your House is normally powered by your existing electrical service

  • Stage 2

    When your house loses power, the transfer switch detects the loss and signals the generator to start

  • Stage 3

    The standby power generator supplies power to the predesignated areas of your home

  • Stage 4

    Hen regular electric service resumes, the transfer switch automatically shuts down the standby generator
