generator outside

salt lake city generatorIt doesn’t matter if you are constructing a new home or upgrading your current one, the idea of having a power back up can sound very appealing. That’s where a whole home generator comes in. This source of back up power is very beneficial to you and your family. Below are some reasons why you should consider installing a whole home generator.

Back Up Source of Power

Bad weather can cause outages in your neighborhood but with a backup generator, you can stay connected to the world without worrying about not having power. Keep warm in the winter when the snow freezes the electricity. If the summer heat causes a blackout, you can keep the air conditioner running with your whole house generator.


It’s quite possible you won’t even notice your generator working. When the power goes out, your generator should kick on to restore the natural function of things. In fact, there’s no need to worry when the power goes out when you’re not at home. The generator will start up right away to keep your refrigerator running and your home a comfortable temperature.


When many people think of generators, they think extension cords, loud noises, and the smell of gas. Whole home generators are a different story. There’s no need for multiple extension cords – the generator is connected right into your main electrical panel.

I am a proud owner of a new 9KW/426 Guard +16C T/SW AL Generac generator. I have a transfer switch for emergency power. I replaced a 20 year old 8 KW Generac. They don’t make parts for old generators. I am happy with the new generator. The installation went smooth. It took 3 men 4 hours to make the replacement. Great job Captain Electric.
