Whole-Home Backup Generators

Do you experience loss of power due to storms or bad weather? Are you worried about the power going out, and not having your home set up to handle those occurrences?  We at Mr. Electric of Salem supply homes with home backup generators to take care of you when the power goes out.  A permanently installed home backup generator protects your home in these situations, giving power automatically when you would normally have none.  It uses propane or natural gas and delivers power directly to your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most important items.

How Does a Home Backup Generator Work?

When the power outage occurs, a home backup generator senses the power outage, turns on automatically through the automatic transfer switch, which does literally that - automatically transfers to kick the generator on and deliver backup power to your home until the utility power returns.  It can run as long as the power remains out, whether that is two hours or two weeks.  

Utility Power Stops 

Did a storm hit?

Maybe the transformer in your neighborhood blew?

Either way, you’ve lost your electricity suddenly…

Your Generator Senses the Outage

As soon as the power stops, your generator senses the outage, and is preparing to kick on to restore power to your home.

The Generator Turns On - Automatically!

You don’t have to be home, you don’t have to manually flip a switch, the generator starts within a few seconds, and is bringing electricity to your home.

Your Electricity is Back

The power runs from the generator to your home through the automatic transfer switch.  It will keep going until the power returns, and you may not even notice the change.
