When some homeowners think of a generator, they think of a portable model that can be moved around. These generators are typically smaller than whole-house models and can only provide enough electricity for a couple appliances at a time.

Unlike portable models, standby generators are hardwired into your home’s electrical panel. Not only is this safer during stormy weather, but it also allows this type of generator to power other hardwired items like your HVAC system or lighting.

If you’re using a portable generator, you’ll need to follow a long list of safety procedures, since they produce carbon monoxide. A whole-house generator is permanently and safely installed outside your home, giving you peace of mind.

Great job by all. They were careful of the landscape replacing the A/C unit. Inside the heating system was replaced and the fit and finish was great. Explained the operation of everything. They came back two weeks later and checked out the operation of the systems plus installation. The tech was here over an hour checking out everything. New system is quiet. This is a company that care about its customer. We highly recommend A-1.
