What Is an Automatic Standby Generator?

Small portable generators are often ideal for camping or any other outdoor usage where electrical outlets are unavailable. They might be good for one or two appliances inside of the home in the event of a power outage. However, you’d have to use extension cords and switch on the unit manually, which can be difficult when you’re navigating through a pitch black home.

With an automatic standby generator, you don’t have to lift a finger if the power goes out. The transfer switch continuously monitors your electricity, and it turns on the generator automatically when there is not an electrical current in your home. Most models purport to switch over in ten seconds or less. And an automatic standby generator can restore power to your entire electrical system, including the lights, the AC, and the refrigerator.

Most automatic standby generators installed today use natural gas, and this is our recommendation for you so that you don’t have to worry about the fuel running out. Natural gas is readily available during a power outage in most areas, even during a power outage. If you need help with the gas line, our specialists can extend your gas piping and make sure it is fitted safely to the generator.
