Home Standby Generators

Are you prepared if the power goes out in your home? With any luck, electrical outages in your area are a rare thing. However, you want to prepare yourself if something does happen by having a backup power system.

While it is important to charge your phone during an emergency, home standby generators do many other things. For example, you keep your food refrigerated in the summer and heat your house if the power goes out during winter.

Heat during the winter is not a luxury in the Northeast, it is essential. While traditional gas heaters used a pilot light, more HVAC systems now use electricity for their heating systems.

For those who use electricity, it could lead to the possibility of frozen pipes.

Home Standby Generators – Repair, Service, & Installation

Standby Generator Repair

Like other appliances in your home, your generator can break. Whether you want to fix it depends on the problem, and more than likely the class of generator.

The two common types of generators are standby and portable.

Standby Generator

You can hook a standby generator directly to the utility company line, so the generator gets alerted to when the power goes off.

When this happens, the standby generator uses a transfer switch to shift the power from the electrical line to the generator. The process is automatic and great for families who want to go without power too long.

Portable Generator

While the portable generator is not light, it comes with wheels and a handle to pull you to your desired location.

Most portable generators run on gasoline to ensure their power source is mobile as well. The one thing you should know is not to use a portable generator in an enclosed space. The carbon monoxide from the fumes makes them deadly.

When was the last time a trained professional evaluated your generator?

Whether you have a standby or portable generator, we can evaluate the problem and come up with a solution to fit your needs. Broken generators do not help in an emergency.

Servicing Your Standby Generator

As we mentioned earlier, generators need servicing like every other machine in your home.

If you used your generator recently for a day or two, consider a service call to make sure everything works correctly after having it on all day and night.

For those who run their generator for ten days or longer, you might need an oil change. A home standby generator works like a car’s engine. Just as you change your oil every 3,000 miles, your generator requires a service call. Because it powers an entire house, it needs regular servicing when in use.

Let us know the product information for your generator, and we can schedule a time to service it.

What People Say

Excellent service — we would recommend Mister Sparky to anyone!— Mary
Very friendly and knowledgeable technician. They were prompt and organized. I thought they were a little pricey, but I've yet to encounter a cheap electrician!— Janine T.
I thought it was kind of expensive to screw an electric bolt to the side of the house. It took no more than 10-15 minutes to erect the ladder, climb it, screw the bolt in, and take the ladder down.— Emilie L.
The electrician was great and explained each step in the process as he moved through the work. He did a great job of cleaning up after the work. The wiring installed under the sink was in metal casing to protect is from potential leaks. I have not had an electrician in for a long time, so my knowledge about cost is not current, but I felt it was a bit high. However for quality of work, timeliness in terms of projected arrival, focus on the task, including not taking phone calls; clear explanation of work, and clean up, I would highly recommend the company.— Chuck S.
