Where will you be when the lights go out? The usual answer is “in the dark” unless you have a backup generator, which automatically restores power to your home in about 20 seconds.

There are several reasons that a power loss can occur, such as:
Today, with all the electrical items we own, as well as our beloved gadgetry and not to mention our security systems, a power outage is horrifying to us. Can you imagine having no refrigerator, air conditioning, or TV to watch…what an inconvenience! A home backup generator is ideal in any emergency situation when you can’t count on your home’s usual power source and Theta Electric can safely and efficiently take care of a generator installation for you. In less than one day, you can have a new generator installed and have peace of mind during the next storm or power outage that you can power your essential appliances and electronics.
There are two kinds of generators – standby and portable home backup generators. A portable generator can be moved and is useful for camping and boating and times when you need a very short term power supply for a leisure activity. However, a portable generator will not have enough power to keep your home’s major appliances such as a refrigerator, running during a power outage. Severe conditions and power outages call for a standby generator.
Theta Electric is expert at connecting your permanent, standby generator; it is not a job for a do-it-yourselfer! Your standby generator is a fixed-site generator, permanently installed outside usually on a slab of concrete and will be linked directly to its fuel supply – natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas – rather than your home’s usual electrical source.
A standby generator has many features and benefits for homeowners:
A standby generator will detect the loss of power when it occurs and automatically switch the main circuit breaker off and switch on the breaker connected to your generator. Isn’t it nice to know that you won’t lose all the food in your freezer or refrigerator if the electricity is off for several days and you aren’t home to deal with the situation?
Not only that, a standby generator also detects when the power resumes and will switch off the generator and switch on the main circuit breaker, restoring regular electrical function to your home and leaving the generator ready for action the next time the power is out.
The standby generator can create from 5,000 to 25,000 watts of power depending on the model. The experts at Theta Electric will thoroughly review the number of appliances and circuits you need to power and recommend the correct model of standby generator to suit your needs. There are several types of standby generators available:
Protect your family, your comfort, and your security, a backup generator is no longer an extravagance – it’s a necessity!
