At Home or away, know you’re protected with a Honeywell backup generator.
Take a glance around your home and you’ll see a thousand reasons to protect what you’ve worked for: treasured photographs, a piece of furniture passed through generations, and most important those who matter most to you. You’ve earned the lifestyle you lead, and now the name you’ve trusted in your home for decades will help you keep everything running in the event of a power outage. Power loss is more than an inconvenience – it can quickly affect the safety and security of your family and your possessions. Honeywell generators will help you protect what matters most.
A Honeywell backup generator takes care of your family and home – automatically.
Reliable electricity is easy to take for granted – at the touch of a switch it’s almost always there. And While weather-related outages make news across the country, demand on an aging power grid is making brownouts an all too common occurrence. Your home relies on power more than ever before to run your refrigeration, lights, well pump, sump pump, appliances, home offices, entertainment systems and more. Trust a Honeywell automatic backup generator to protect what matters most during a power outage, whether you’re home or away.
It fuels automatically.
A permanently installed backup generator is fueled automatically, much like your furnace or natural gas or liquid propane powered appliances. The generator is connected to your existing fuel supply to deliver clean, worry-free power. If you’re away from home when the power goes out, you wont have to worry about a thing.
It starts and stops automatically.
Just like your heating and cooling system is controlled by a transfer switch that senses when utility power fails, starting the generator automatically within seconds. When utility power resumes, your Honeywell generator shuts itself down and automatically switches back to utility power. It even “exercises” itself once a week, starting and stopping to ensure its ready for the next power outage.
Enjoy comfort and safety with a Backup Generator
When the power goes out, what seems like a momentary inconvenience could actually turn into a big problem. In the middle of a cold winter night, or during the depths of a sweaty summer, the last thing you want to deal with is a useless heating and cooling system.
Even more seriously, if you or someone you love requires medication to be refrigerated or a vital medical device to have a power source a power outage could create a serious health hazard. By investing in an automatic stand-by generator you’ll have peace of mind, regardless of the weather.
We will visit your home to help you choose a generator that meets your home’s power needs during an outage. We will assess the installation site and conditions affecting generator placement, inspect the electrical service panel and circuits and review appliances and lifestyle demands in your home. During this visit, you can select which appliances and equipment you’d like to keep running during an outage. Together, you will select the right generator and installation to fit your home and your family’s needs. After your in-home survey is complete, we will provide a quote to get you started immediately.
Once the installation is complete, we will thoroughly clean the work area and conduct a final walk through with you to make sure you understand how to operate your new generator.
Maintaining Your Generator:
After installing a generator, it is important to maintain it.
We will come and maintain your home standby generator twice a year. This service consists of a full inspection. We will change the oil, spark plugs, and all consumables. Six month later, we will come back and perform the inspection a second time, letting you know if any parts need replacing or if any repairs are necessary.

Top Ten Reasons to Buy a Standby Generator
Read on for the top 10 reasons to buy a standby generator and different ways they may be able to make life easier for you and your loved ones.
1. It keeps you sheltered and protected during a storm.
GE standby generators are permanently installed and always monitoring the connection to utility power. As a result, a home generator by GE automatically detects a loss of electricity and fires up. This is different from a portable generator, which requires you to go outside, set up safely, and start manually, regardless of the conditions outside.
2. Standby generators have a longer run-time than a portable generator.
Portable generators are limited—in power and run-time—by how much generator fuel you have on-hand. Home generators by GE are powered by reliable Briggs & Stratton engines and are connected directly to your fuel source, natural gas or liquid propane, allowing prolonged run-time and producing enough electricity to provide your home with reliable backup power.
3. Critical and luxury appliances keep running when the power goes out.
GE generators come in a range of generator sizes and can power everything from light bulbs to televisions and jacuzzi tubs. Keep your family by keeping the essentials on and make toughing out the storm a little less stressful with some household comforts.
4. Food stays fresh—longer.
GE generators can keep your refrigerator running. With a cold refrigerator and freezer through a storm, you save money and maintain emergency supplies by saving food.
5. Business Owners: Generators minimize business downtime.
Does your business rely on servers, refrigerators, or other appliances that could be damaged in the event of a power outage? Save your small business time, worry, and money by helping to ensure the safety and up-time of your most crucial business tools.
6. Sump pumps stay on – avoiding flood damage.
Is flooding a concern in your house or home business? Backup generators power your sump pump during the heaviest downpours.
7. GE generators are outfitted with wireless monitoring & other generator features.
GE Standby generators are outfitted with premium features that you won’t find on a portable generator. Coming soon, GE generators will even be outfitted with a wireless device that notifies your cell phone when utility power has been restored to your home or business, so you can always be sure that your generator is working flawlessly.
8. Keeping the lights on helps calm kids during a power outage.
Are your children—or maybe you—afraid of the dark? Home generators keep lights on through a power outage, so your family has one less thing to worry about during a storm.
9. The generator’s automatic transfer switch does the work for you.
Portable generators are constrained by fuel availability during a power output, while GE generators are outfitted with a smart, sophisticated power management system and automatic transfer switch. Expertly installed by an authorized GE Generator Systems Dealer or qualified electrician/licensed contractor, transfer switches protect your and utility workers’ safety from back feed. And, they allow you to prioritize cycling power between critical appliances like sump pumps, heaters and ventilation systems.
10. Standby generators give you peace of mind.
Home generators are wired into your home’s electrical system and require no setup and minimal maintenance once a professional electrician has completed your generator installation. Homeowners can experience tranquility during a storm, feeling confident that their GE home generator will protect their family and home!
