Residential Standby Backup Generator

In today's world we depend on electrical power. The essentials of heating, cooling, refrigeration and lighting as well as cooking or sump pump functions to prevent flooding all require electrical power. The Smart Power Grids are being designed to cope with higher demand using less capacity. The redistribution of power is unlikely to accommodate needs when you need them most! Air conditioners in your area may not run due to various levels of rolling outage conditions when demand is at it highest.

Frequent outages are occurring more frequently than ever and lasting longer with devastating effects. If the power ever goes out, your standby backup generator goes on automatically protecting you and your home 24/7. Choose the level of protection you need, See below:


How Much Generator Do I Need?

Choosing the right generator and transfer switch comes down to needs vs. wants at a price point.

What are the essentials that must be powered when you lose electrical service? - refrigerator, sump pumps, lighting in functional rooms of your home like the kitchen and bathrooms.
Do you have critical medical equipment or environment needs like air conditioning must haves?
How large of a home and how much of the home needs power in emergency situations?

The good news is you have many choices, from a gasoline powered generator you pull out and start up when emergencies arise to whole house generators with full function comfort running automatically using your homes natural or LP gas.

Essential Circuits or Load Shedding Transfer Switches

Selecting 10 to 16 essential loads for automatic backup generator power comes at an excellent value with peace of mind.

Load shedding transfer switches can manage up to whole-house coverage by shedding circuits when demand exceeds capacity. A smaller generator paired with a load management transfer switch provides whole-house coverage through a managed power solution. Non-essential circuits are shed when the generator approaches maximum capacity to eliminate overload, then are cycled back on when essential circuits are satisfied. Give yourself a little more than just the basics without a substantial increase in your investment.

Residential Whole House Home Generators

Whole house backup is achieved by matching the capacity of your home with an automatic transfer switch. Depending on the electrical capacity required in the home a liquid cooled generator may require. Never wait for an appliance to take its turn being powered. When the power goes out, everything stays on - no matter how many circuits you have.
