A Back-up Generator Delivers Power You Can Count On During & After a Power Outage

A back-up generator is a powerful tool for managing both expected and unexpected electrical outages. Available in multiple sizes and configurations, there’s an ideal solution for every homeowner’s specific needs. There are three basic types of back-up power to consider. 

Standby Generator

This is the type most of us think of when imagining an alternative source of electricity for our homes. These units are typically large enough to support the electrical needs of the entire house, including your appliances and furnace. A standby generator usually requires installation of an automatic transfer switch, so as soon as your home’s normal power source is interrupted, the alternate source immediately becomes available to draw from.

Portable Generator

These models are often great for smaller or occasional needs, such as camping and tailgating, construction sites, outdoor parties and even seasonal outdoor light displays. A manual transfer switch in your home allows you to use a portable generator for a limited number of circuits, but not your entire home electrical system. 

Ford Truck Power Inverter

The inverter model delivers a reliable balance between the power of a standby unit with the adaptability of the portable type. While available as a stand-alone unit, owners of the exciting new Ford model F-150 Lightning truck find the on-board inverter highly valuable. This built-in source of backup power delivers up to 8,000 watts, able to comfortably power your entire home for days. When used with an automatic transfer switch, changing over the power source for your home is quick and safe even under the most challenging circumstances.
