Mister Sparky electricians specialize in installing and maintaining standby generators and portable generators. Contact us to keep powered during any outage.

Standby Generators Provide Unlimited Electricity

Facing the uncertainty of a power outage, many homeowners choose to install standby generators. Attached to your liquid fuel line, a standby generator is essentially a miniature power plant — just for your home. Unlike portable generators that are limited by fuel tank size, standby generators can run for the duration of the power outage. Larger and more powerful than portable generators, standby generators provide enough electricity for you to resume all normal home functions.

Standby Generators Provide Ease of Use During a Power Outage

As the name implies, a standby generator is always ready to provide electricity should you need it. While attaching and starting a portable generator is a multi-step process, a standby generator begins providing electricity automatically. This powerful equipment provides true convenience and peace-of-mind — during any power outage. Mister Sparky electricians specialize in this powerful type of generator.

Portable Generator Setup

While a standby generator presents several advantages, some home owners prefer portable generators for their price. If you choose a portable generator to keep your family safe during a power outage, we can help you ensure your home is ready. Our electricians can install the generator transfer switches and receptacles necessary to keep power with a portable generator.
