Tired of losing power when there is a storm, heat wave, or other problems? Get a standby generator installed, and you will never have to be without power again.
What is an automatic standby generator?
An automatic standby generator is a back-up electrical system that operates whether you are at home or away. It automatically supplies power to essential circuits of your home within seconds of a utility outage. After utility power returns, the generator shuts itself off and awaits the next outage. It operates on natural gas or liquid propane gas and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit.
Why should I buy an automatic standby generator instead of a portable generator?
While portable generators do supply much needed back up power to your home during a utility outage, an automatic standby generator produces a higher quality of electricity. It operates automatically and runs a weekly self-test to ensure proper response to your needs. There are no extension cords to plug in and no gas tanks to fill. It responds to the outage for you, so it protects your home even when you're away. When utility power returns, the standby generator shuts itself off.
What brand of generator should I buy?
Although we have access to many brands, we recommend Guardian generators as they often have the best value for the price. And they are well supported by the factory and the network of service providers.
