HOME BACKUP GENERATORS
A home backup generator is a fast solution to keep your home powered when the electricity goes out!
While losing power may be a minor inconvenience to some, it can be terrifying for others with security or health issues that rely on electricity for their wellbeing. With the growing work-from-home population and children attending school online, a missed day of income and education is not an option. Never worry about losing power again when you have a backup generator!
We prefer to use generators from Honeywell and Generac. We find these are high quality products that provide the most reliability for our customers. We work with our customers to determine the amount of power they need and will generally recommend one of the following:
- Whole-house circuit protection with automatic transfer
- Partial-house circuit protection with automatic transfer
- Portable generators for partial house protection with manual transfer
A whole house or partial house generator has an automatic transfer switch that sends generator power to your home and will continue providing power until your main power source returns. You can monitor the status from an app on your phone! The manual generator needs to be turned on, but can keep your essentials powered.
The generators are ready for install immediately, but you can also consider a whole house battery backup. The cost is comparable (potentially less with rebates).
