Emergency Power Generators / Preventive Maintenance and Repairs

Installation of emergency power generators and surge protection are critical for your home or business.

Dunn’s Electric can install many different systems to meet your budget from a manual transfer switch that connects to a portable generator all the way to a whole house generator system with an automatic transfer switch.

All emergency generator systems services include start-up and demonstration so you can be sure of how to operate it in your time of need. DEC uses various types of emergency backup systems to match different budgets. Call us and we will be happy to go over your options.

  • Essential circuit generator system
  • Automatic transfer switches
  • Manual transfer switches

What Other Design Factors Need to Be Considered?

When designing a grid-connected system the limiting factors are:

  • Available funds
  • Location size
  • Energy consumption
    (Usually in that specific order.)

When designing an off-grid system – or in this case a grid-connected system with battery backup for an extended time – the primary factor is consumption. We need to plan to have the amount of energy necessary to survive an extended time without power. We can live without games for a few days to save energy.

Before we even think of designing a system we must first make sure that all available efficiency steps have been taken. That means LED lights and Energy Star rated appliances. $1 in efficiency spending typically equates to $3 less in solar panel system savings.
