The Capital Heat Approach

Capital Heat only stocks the best backup generators in the industry. These generators are 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.


Although the generator creates the power, the transfer switch is really the central part of your generator system. Capital Heat will discuss your needs to assess whether you need a transfer switch that provides 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.
