Emergency Standby Generator Installation
Factory Certified Installers for leading manufacturers like Gererac and Kohler
An Emergency Standby Generator will ensure your home or business remains energized during a power outage. Emergency Generators offer a stable solution to extended power outages, and are available if several sizes to address your specific power needs. Unlike portable generators, they are installed permanently on a concrete pad and will provide uninterrupted power backup for days. They are connected directly to your home’s electrical panel and powered by an external fuel supply, like natural gas, liquid propane, or diesel.
Emergency Generators operate by automatically disconnecting your property from the public utility, after detecting an interruption in your electrical service. Once your home is safely off the power grid, a switch automatically starts up the generator before transferring its power to the home’s electrical panel. When municipal power is restored, the switch shuts down the generator and reconnects your house back to the grid. This seamless operation makes emergency generators ideal for families with small children, and those needing uninterrupted use of electric-powered medical equipment. Just as importantly, the automatic transfer switch acts as a safety mechanism as well. It prevents back-feeding electricity to the grid, a potentially lethal practice that can start fires and harm utility workers attempting to restore your neighborhood’s power.
