Losing Power Isn’t Just An Inconvenience, It Puts Your Home And Family At Risk.

Having an emergency generator will allow you to keep necessary appliances running in your home, like lights, refrigerator, HVAC system, water heater, sump pump, security system, Wi-Fi, and even medical equipment. No one likes feeling helpless during an emergency.

Be prepared for the unexpected and feel assured that your household will continue to run and stay safe until the power is restored.

Is it safe to run my generator during a storm?
Yes! The automatic standby generator is enclosed in a sturdy all weather housing that will stand up to the toughest weather. Our portable generators are also emergency rated with rubber covers over the crucial electrical components. It is best to be sure there is no snow buildup around the generator.
How often will my generator run?
You’re able to schedule a weekly or biweekly test that will only take a few minutes.
What kind of fuel does a generator use?
Our automatic standby generators can be run on either natural gas or propane. Portable generators run on standard gasoline available at all local gas stations.
What maintenance does my generator require?
Yearly oil changes and generator inspections should be maintained to ensure when the power goes out you’re not left in the dark!
