With the important role that electricity plays in our lives, it’s no surprise that a sudden power outage can cause massive disruptions. When a power outage hits, food in the refrigerator or freezer can quickly spoil, your home’s heating or cooling shuts off, and you won’t be able to run the many electronic devices that make modern life possible, from computers to washing machines.
The best way to avoid these disruptions is with a backup generator installation. That way, you’ll always have a reliable source of power anytime your normal supply is interrupted. When you partner with the team at Master Electrical Service, we can help you choose and install the best generator for your home, whether you need to power your entire home or just a few vital systems.
At Master Electrical Service, we’ve been combining quality work with superior customer service since 1954. Let us take care of your backup generator services, so your life doesn’t get interrupted!
A backup generator uses fuel, such as propane or natural gas, to create electricity. In the event that your home’s power supply is interrupted, an automatic transfer switch flips on, which tells the generator to start producing electricity. You’ll barely notice a thing, as you won’t be left in the dark when the power goes out.
Once the power is restored, your generator will return to standby mode, ready for the next time you need it.
Some homeowners choose portable generators. While these models cost less than a whole house generator, they’re also much less convenient. They have to be started by hand, and they can only power a few appliances at a time. Because they don’t have the proper venting to work indoors, these are best used for smaller needs, like providing power while camping.
There are a number of reasons why your home might lose power. The length of time your power may be out can vary widely, depending on the cause.
Some of the most common reasons you may be without power include:
Each situation is unique, and while the power company can give you an estimate on how long it may take to restore power, you’ll avoid serious interruptions to your life if you have your own reliable backup generator to keep your home running.
The best time to consider generator installation isn’t when the power is out, it’s long before that. Installing a generator sooner rather than later can help you better cope with unforeseen electrical outages.
The team at Master Electrical Service is ready to install the right generator for your home. We’ll help you choose the best model to meet your needs, making sure that your generator will produce enough electricity for your top priorities. With our expert installation services, you can rest assured, knowing that your new generator will be ready to kick into service when you need it.

As part of our generator installation services, we’ll give you an in-depth demonstration of how your new generator works. We’ll show you where the transfer switches are located, as well as how to operate them manually when necessary.

It’s also a good idea to set up a generator maintenance plan, in order to make sure you have power ready when you need it. With Master Electrical Service’s protection plan, you can establish a regular maintenance schedule, so you don’t have to remember to schedule it yourself.
During inspections, we’ll check your entire system, making sure that everything is working as it should be. We’ll go through step by step, making minor repairs as we go and taking notes of any developing or potential problems we might spot. We’ll present you the results of our inspection, as well as any recommendations for future action.
Master Electrical Service also provides homeowners with home safety checks, which are intended to make sure that your generator is set up and functioning properly, without the risk of dangerous malfunctions, including carbon monoxide leaks.
