A generator is a machine that, from the technical point of view, is going to need maintenance and repairs at a certain point in its life. We are prepared for that moment with a full inventory of parts and pieces, and are able to repair and have it running again in hours, not weeks after the storm is gone and utility power is restored.
We know that you, as a consumer, need this generator to run in emergency situations. And if it is not functioning then, your investment is not worth too much. This is why it is so important to have a correct estimate, a correct design, service, maintenance, and repairs - all at the proper time. We do high quality work in serving our customers in all these aspects.
A stand-by generator is made to be installed outside. If designed, installed, and maintained properly it can survive outside, ready to work, for over 20 years in the most harsh conditions - huricanes, snow and/or ice, or very low temperatures up to 0°F.
The portable generator is not meant to be used in adverse conditions.
