Generator Installation & Maintenance in Baton Rouge, LA

A Quick Installation Generates Peace of Mind  

Emergency preparedness is crucial to ensuring your family stays safe whenever an unexpected storm or power outage happens. In addition to stocking away enough nonperishable food and water, you should always have a backup generator ready to provide electricity for your home if you find yourself without power. Intense storms and other uncontrollable circumstances can take down power lines or otherwise knock out power, leaving you and your family in the dark without a properly working charger, refrigerator, or air conditioner. Fortunately, you can reduce the impact a power outage makes on your home with a generator. At Mr. Electric of Baton Rouge, we have extensive home generator installation and maintenance expertise. We’ll gladly discuss setting you up with a brand-new generator to provide emergency power when your street, neighborhood, or grid fails.

  • The home generator installation cost depends on the type of generator you select to install at your home. Each type has its pros and cons, and it's important to speak with an expert about your unique needs. At Mr. Electric of Baton Rouge, we most often recommend the following generator types:

  • This type of generator is an excellent choice if you only need to provide temporary electricity to a few appliances. They have a manual start, and you must connect them to the appliances you want to power. Portable generators are relatively inexpensive, costing homeowners only around $1,500. However, they come with an increased risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if you use them in improper locations around your home.

  • Home standby generators are your best choice if you need to restore power during an interruption automatically. These generators run on natural gas or propane to switch on the moment they detect a power outage. Homeowners with standby generators get peace of mind and assurance their air conditioning, lighting, and appliances continue to work while the power is out. However, that convenience comes at a higher price. These types of generators can cost you up to $15,000.

Understanding How a Generator Works


Generators use fuels like gasoline or natural gas to generate electrical power using a heavy-duty recharging battery. When the power goes out in your home, the generator kicks on to ensure your refrigerator, freezer, sump pump, furnace, stove, lights, and air conditioning stay functional. Investing in a residential home generator installation with Mr. Electric of Baton Rouge now will prevent unnecessary trouble and discomfort in all the following situations:  

  • Blackouts—Louisiana's extreme temperatures can impact your local power grid. In the most severe cases, conditions can make it impossible for the power grid to meet energy demands.  
  • Inclement Weather—All types of weather can affect power lines, including lighting, heavy winds, tornadoes, and hurricanes. These rough weather conditions can all knock out your power for days.  
  • Damage from Animals—Damage from animals is the second leading power loss cause, coming in behind inclement weather.  
  • Natural Disasters—Louisiana's climate produces natural disasters like floods and hurricanes, often causing widespread power outages across the state.  
  • Car Accidents—A car accident down the street can damage local power lines and cause service interruptions. Make sure you're prepared by installing a generator when an automotive accident knocks out power lines or a transformer.
