WHAT IS A HOME STANDBY GENERATOR?
A Home standby generator gives your home a permanent source of back up power.Once installed, your home standby generator constantly monitors your electrical supply. In the event of a power outage the generator automatically starts and delivers continuous electrical power to your home. Since it is connected to your LPG or natural gas system it never needs refueling.
No matter how long your power is out, your Home Standby generator is there to keep the lights on, the water hot, and your family safe. From powering the essentials to running the entire home, our home standby generator series allows you to choose the power you need to safeguard your home and family.
Is a Home Standby Generator right for you?
To start with, they are not an inexpensive investment. You’ll need to decide if you just need the essentials powered or the whole house.
