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:
- Well Pump
- Air Conditioner
- Garage Door Opener
- Sump Pump
- Security System
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
Human error: underground digging, cranes, traffic and vandalism
Miscellaneous: mechanical damage, construction and fire
How a standby generator protects your home
Your House is normally powered by your existing electrical service
When your house loses power, the transfer switch detects the loss and signals the generator to start
The standby power generator supplies power to the predesignated areas of your home
Hen regular electric service resumes, the transfer switch automatically shuts down the standby generator
