Power. Our lives depend on it. From major necessities like heating, cooling, refrigeration and lighting to daily essentials like cooking, laundry or kids’ bath times, power makes them possible. Power outages are occurring more frequently than ever and lasting longer with devastating effects. Stand up to unpredictable weather and unforeseen outages with the most trusted name in residential standby power. If the power ever goes out, your standby generator goes on – automatically – protecting you and your home 24/7.
The generators are also designed to come on automatically once a week, for about 15 minutes, even when there is no loss of power. This is for the oil to lubricate the system, so that when and if there is a loss of power, the unit is ready to run.
What can be connected to a generator?
- Gas Furnace/Boiler
- Gas Cooktop
- Microwave Oven
- Some Lights
- Sump Pump
- Electric Oven
Although the generator creates the power, the transfer switch is really the central part of your generator system. Options include transfer switches that provide power to only essential circuits, or to every circuit for whole-house coverage. Some allow for prioritization of optional circuits or load shedding, such as heating and cooling.
