What Are Automatic Standby Generators?

Automatic standby generators, like other generators, serve as a backup power source for your home in case of a blackout or power shortage. Unlike other generators, an automatic standby generator kicks in right away when blackouts occur and powers your entire home, so you only experience a brief lapse of power.

Most professional electricians sell and install automatic standby generators. If you feel like getting one is the right choice for your home, contact a local expert for prices and installation options!

How Do Automatic Standby Generators Work?

Automatic standby generators draw their fuel from your home’s propane or natural gas supply, so you never have to worry about remembering to refuel them or running out of power when you need it most. A single installation can have you protected from any future power outages with no effort on your part!

What Can an Automatic Standby Generator Do for Me?

Unexpected blackouts and power shortages can cause you a whole mess of problems:

  • Food can spoil when your refrigerator loses power
  • A lack of proper lighting can cause dangerous accidents
  • No power means you’ll be unable to charge your phones, laptops, electric vehicles, and other essential devices

With an automatic standby generator in place, you won’t have to worry about any of that. Your generator will start providing you with an alternative source of power immediately, keeping all your important devices powered and functional!
