Home Standby Generators

We offer the best selection in Home Standby power generation from the most trusted manufacturers. Choose from several models offered by Briggs & Stratton, Generac, and Winco Power. 

Our lives depend on electric power. When the power goes out, it becomes obvious how necessary electric power is to daily living – heating, cooling, refrigeration, cooking, bathing, and lighting, at the very least!

Unforeseen events are often more than an inconvenience; they can cause considerable losses to your property and your safety. You can protect your home, your possessions, and the safety of your loved ones with a standby generator that switches on automatically when the power goes out.

What determines the type and size generator for your home? It depends on the amount of power you need in an outage.  Our  Customer Service Representative can estimate that for you and answer any questions that you may have. 

We have well-trained, experienced professionals to help you!

What is a standby generator?

Standby Generators provide automatic backup electricity for your air conditioner, appliances, lights, TVs, or computers and give you the peace of mind to take charge during power outages.

A Standby Generator:

  • Turns on and off automatically
  • Is connected to your home’s electrical system
  • Senses power loss within seconds of an outage and transfers the electrical load to the generator
  • Runs on Natural Gas (NG) or Liquid Propane (LP) Gas
  • Can power select circuits or your whole household
  • Is permanately installed by licenced professionals, such as GenPro

How does a standby generator work?

  1. When power fails, the automatic transfer switch recognizes the outage from the utility line.
  2. The transfer switch signals the standby generator, which is then “switched” on and provides backup power to your home until power is restored.
  3. When utility power is restored, the transfer switch will again signal the generator to shut down until it is needed again.

Things to know before you buy

All standby generators should be installed by a licensed professional like DakGen or licensed electrician. 

Does your home use Natural Gas (NG) or Liquid Propane (LP) Gas?
Standby generators provide automatic backup power in a power outage and are permanently installed either to a natural gas line or a liquid propane fuel source. 

What size, in AMPS, of your electrical service?
A standby generator needs to be connected to the appropriate automatic transfer switch to operate properly. Transfer switches are sized by the amperage demands of the home’s electrical service and, therefore, are offered in ranges from 50 Amps to 200 Amps. Many newer homes include 200 Amp service to accomodate increasing demand for electrical power.
