Generator Services in Birmingham, AL

Think of what you could lose during a major power outage. After several hours, the food in your refrigerator spoils. You might not be able to stay at home without any air or heat, which means spending money finding alternative housing accommodations and traveling unexpectedly. If you have a sump pump in a lower level of your home, this could fail and your home may be at risk of a major flood. And a power outage may happen when you least expect it.

We recommend whole-house generators to homeowners worried about this possibility, or those who have experienced issues in the past. Never again will you have to search for a place to stay or huddle for warmth after a power outage, since your new generator switches on within seconds of a power failure.
