Installing Stand-by Generators






Home generators are designed to provide electricity in times of power outages or utility company malfunctions for a short duration of time. Home stand-by generators not only provide lighting for the house in case of power outages but also may, depending on their capacity, provide power to run appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators, furnaces, televisions and heaters.

Stationary home generators require the service of a professional licensed electrical contractor for installation. Generators are connected to the home wiring system through an automatic transfer switch properly sized for the home’s electrical needs or can be connected with a manual transfer switch or properly connected inlet to operate selected loads. NEVER connect a portable generator to the home’s electrical system without these critical safety components installed!

Automatic Stationary generators come with an automatic power monitoring system. As soon as there is disruption in power, the generator automatically starts to provide power and switches off automatically after normal power is restored.
