Why Install a Honeywell Standby Generator?
No one schedules a power outage. You can expect them any time, any place. When you’re watching the news and seen reports of devastating storms taking out the power for days, you know you don’t want to be one of those people. Hurricanes and tornadoes are definitely at the top of the newsfeeds when it comes to storms, but almost 60% of weather-related outages are caused by simple thunderstorms.
Installing a Honeywell generator in your home, you can know you will always be protected — even if you’re not home. When an outage occurs, your generator will start up automatically. Once the power is restored, the automatic transfer switch will switch the power back to your utility company. No work needs to be done on your end.
How does a Honeywell Generator Work?
A moment later, the generator starts generating electricity to power your home. You don’t even need to be around for this to happen.
Finally, with the help of the automatic transfer switch, the generator will send the power through your home and continues to do so until the power has been restored by your utility company.
At that point, the switch will switch back to the power coming from your utility company.
Why Choose Honeywell?

Honeywell provides backup power systems in a variety of sizes that can help power your entire home or just the essential items.

Honeywell Generator Installation Process
As a preferred dealer, Captain Electric has been trained on how to install Honeywell generators. When you choose us as your Honeywell generator installer, you know we can get the job done correctly.
When it comes to installing a generator, there are usually four steps.
- Choose a location
Location, location, location — we can help you choose the best location for your generator. An area that is stable and not likely to flood is the best. Allow for room around the generator position so that a tech or maintenance person can access it in the future. If you live in a restricted community, be sure to check with your HOA to see what you are allowed to do.
A concreate slab or pea gravel will be prepared and your generator will be placed on the new foundation.
A fuel line will be connected and a transfer switch will be installed. This transfer switch will be used to detect when there is power flowing from your utility company to turn off and on the generator.
Next, we will simulate an outage situation to make sure everything is working correctly.
How Much Power Do I Need?
In order to determine how much power your home will need can depend on a variety of different things. When thinking about power, take into consideration the size of your home, how much power you are currently consuming, and what all you would like to backup in the event of an outage.
