Montclair, NJ Automatic Standby Generator Services
There are a lot of different generator systems available on the market today, from the smallest portable gasoline generator to the largest whole-house system. It’s important that you find a generator that can actually provide for your energy needs in case of a power outage.

Why Choose an Automatic Standby Generator for Your Montclair, NJ Home?
An automatic standby generator is a bit different from portable generators or those without a transfer switch.
- Due to its large size, it’s permanently installed outside, or in another building separate from the home like a barn or shed.
- Standby generators are powered by their own natural gas line, which means that they don’t need to be constantly manually supplied with gasoline like their smaller counterparts. This greatly lessens the burden on the homeowner, who won’t have to keep trudging out to the system to refill it every few hours while it’s operating. Natural gas is also cheaper, and burns cleaner, than gasoline, making it a more energy efficient and environmentally friendly fuel source (diesel and gasoline generators emit up to 70% more particulate and nitrous oxide byproducts).
- The most important feature of an automatic standby generator, though, is the automatic transfer switch. The automatic transfer switch is the connection point between the generator and the home’s electrical system. The switch monitors the flow of electricity through the system at all times. When it detects that the main system has lost power, it will automatically activate the generator and transfer its power to the home—within seconds.
This is a huge advantage over other generator systems, most of which need to be manually activated in case of a power outage. If you’re in the middle of a storm and the power goes out, you don’t need to go outside at all if you have an automatic standby generator.
