Don’t let your weekend at the cottage be ruined by a power outage.
You work all week, head to the lake, cut the grass, sit down to relax and … the power is out.. Or worse, you’re away in the winter and a power outage results in frozen pipes and a big insurance claim. These are all problems of the past when you install a standby generator.
A permanently installed standby generator protects your cottage automatically. These generators run on natural gas, propane or diesel and sit outside your cottage just like a central air conditioning unit. Within seconds of the power going out your generator kicks in restoring power to all the vital components inside your cottage – furnace, fridge, lights and sensitive electronics like computers and televisions.
