The Role of Standby Generators

Today, more people have become more reliant on technology in all facets, whether at home, health care facilities, or any business that depends on power to operate. When the power goes out, for any reason, or in any season, a standby generator from Hunter Service Group detects the power outage and starts automatically, keeping your home powered. We install automatic transfer switches to sense an outage and supply your home with power until electricity is restored. Once the power is restored, your generator will shut down automatically and stand by waiting for the next power loss.

Generator Installation FAQs

What Size Generator Is Best for My Home?

When it comes to generators, size refers to its electrical capacity, not the physical size of the equipment. At Hunter Service Group, we can help you determine the electrical capacity you’ll need and find the right machine for your needs.

How Much Will the Generator Installation Cost?

The cost varies depending on many factors, including the type, electrical capacity, and equipment features. We can offer you an accurate estimate before any work begins so you can know what to expect.

Is It Okay to Plug a Portable Generator Into an Outlet?

No. Plugging a portable generator directly into an outlet is extremely dangerous and illegal. It can cause back-feeding into the utility lines connecting to your home, causing severe injuries and even death to unsuspecting utility workers.

Can I Run My Portable Generator Inside My Home?

No. Portable generators run on gas, which emits exhaust containing poisonous carbon monoxide.

Does a Generator Need Maintenance?

Yes. Generators also need routine maintenance to prevent costly generator repair and keep your equipment in perfect working order.
