How does a home standby system work?

Why make the investment?

Protect against storm damage & costs associated with power outages

There are many risks to a home not having power, whether it's water damage from the sump pump not working, to food spoilage with the freezer off or even hotel stays & meals - you can avoid the unexpected financial burdens with a backup / standby generator

Lower Homeowners Insurance

Deter break-ins with constant security & remote monitoring which can reduce your homeowners insurance

Comfort during power outages

A home standby generator keeps your family running, whether it's enjoying your favourite show, a hot meal or maintaining your heat in the winter or AC in the summer, you won't skip a beat!

Increased value

Increase your resale value by adding a generator system - a recent study by Remodeling magazine showed standby generators can increase your home resale value by up to 52%!
