More About Residential Power Generators

Everyone is highly dependent on electricity and the many conveniences it provides. Our everyday routines are controlled by the alarm clocks, phone chargers and coffee makers that help us function. An interruption in power brings it all to a screeching halt. But beyond the break in routine and minor inconveniences, a power outage can pose a very real threat to both property and health. An average home may use more than a hundred electrical appliances and devices to provide convenience, comfort and security. It is, therefore, essential that you have a backup home generator installed by the professionals at Maybin’s Emergency Power Systems to prepare for a power outage.

A residential power generator has major advantages over a portable generator- automatic start, permanent fixture, more power, cleaner fuel (natural gas or propane), low running costs and all-weather operation. Standby power systems start automatically with seconds after a home’s electricity goes out and ensure a continuous electrical supply.   The Transfer Switch on your new Cummins Onan Power Generator will immediately sense when power is interrupted and transfers power generation to the generator. It also senses when power is restored and transfers the power load back to the utility source and signals the generator to shut down. The power generator is installed outdoors and linked directly to a permanent fuel supply at your home.
