Standby Generators

Severe weather is the leading cause of power outages in the United States. A standby generator can limit the interruption of a power outage by automatically restoring power to your home or business. Since every home's power requirements are different, choosing a generator begins with knowing what appliances and systems you want to run during an outage. Standby generators should be installed by a professional dealer.
