Automatic Standby Generator Systems

If you are in need emergency power for medical, heating, cooling, or many other electrical reasons, turn to Midwest Electric and Generator, Inc for home generator installation.

How Standby Generators Work

When utility power and electricity is lost – whether it’s due to a storm, equipment failure, or something else – your installed standby generator is ready to help keep your home running smoothly. Always in standby mode, the generator will sense the power is out and turn on automatically to restore electricity within seconds! While everyone else is left in the dark, your standby generator quickly restores electricity in your home to keep your appliances, lights, and other electrical equipment operating normally. When utility power returns, the generator senses the change and returns to standby mode, ready for the next emergency.

Installing a Home Generator
If you’re interested in a home generator, our Generac, GE, Kohler, or Cummins generators can power everything from air conditioning units to security systems and kitchen appliances with no refueling or extension cords needed. We can also handle just the critical selected circuits, such as a furnace or a sump pump.

During setup, Our technicians will also help determine the best placement for your generator outside the home. Some details our generator installer will look for:

•  A clear space with open airflow to provide ample room for potential service and maintenance in the future;
•  Ensuring the unit is located near the fuel supply but away from the dangers of rising water;
•  The standby generator should sit flat – with a couple of inches of space on each side – on a secure bed of gravel, crushed stone, or even a small concrete pad, if desired.

After  installing and connecting the gas line, we will ensure your generator is properly installed and ready to act as an emergency power source for your home. We will complete a full dealer check out and go through the generator system. Your new generator will be ready to automatically turn on in the event of a power outage. Giving you the ultimate peace of mind.
