Whole House Generator Buying Guide 

Before we equip your house with a standby generator you’ll need to select a model to suit your needs.  Choosing the right size is important as you will need 5000 watts of power for typical Ottawa homes.  Automatic start features provide a seamless flow of electricity if the power suddenly shuts off. Transfer switches are connected between the generator and your home’s electrical panel to your outlets (and devices) are protected from frying themselves.
