Residential Generators

Residential Generators

How many times here in Birmingham have you lost power? It has happened so many times that I can’t even keep track. With all the storms, occasional earthquakes and the temporarily cut offs from our own utility companies, it seems that power is always going off.

Losing your electricity is aggravating and annoying. For those who have medical conditions, it can be potentially life threatening. That’s why having a generator installed can be one of the best investments you can make for yourself and your family. Not only will you have power when you need it, a generator will increase your home’s value.

There is no greater time to have a generator installed. With all the storms that have hit the US, there is a great demand for generators. Prices seem to go up by the week, and generators are hard to get.

When you have a generator installed by John's Electric, you will get the best bang for your buck, and you will get unparalleled customer service. Investing in a generator is a big project, and you don’t want a rookie to handle such a job. We will give your home a complete evaluation to see what the best option is for you and your family. We handle the evaluation, design & drawling’s, permits, installations, and inspections. We also handle the gas hookup coordination.

In Good Hands

There is only one thing you have to do and that is enjoy the peace of mind knowing that you will always have power from your generator in the event of a power outage, blackout or a whiteout, you will have peace of mind knowing that you will still be able to use your heating and A/C, Medical equipment, lighting and your food in your refrigerator and freezer won’t go bad.

We have many options to choose from. Your standby generator will employ an automatic transfer switch which monitors the incoming utility company power supply, starts the generator, and transfers the load automatically, and upon return of utility power after the power outage, it automatically transfers the load back to the utility power supply, continues to run the generator for a brief cool-down period, and then shuts down the generator. It is ready for the next power outage.

No Time for Maintenance?

If that is the case, then that is OK. Automatic Standby Generators are self-exercising, and start and run for a brief period at your preset time once each week. In this way, your Automatic Standby Generator is always ready for the call of duty. We can handle all routine maintenance and repairs on your generator too.

Durability and Quiet?

Quiet, yet powerful! Our systems come prepackaged in a weatherproof, sound insulated enclosure. They use clean burning natural gas or propane fuel, not smelly gasoline or diesel fuel.

What about my house?

All houses and needs are different. We offer generator systems in an extensive range of capacities to ensure all your power needs are met when there is a power-supply failure. From 7kW right up to 150kW, the systems are either propane or natural gas powered, and either air or liquid cooled.

Don’t be left in the dark!

Disasters will come and go. However, you and your family can enjoy life uninterrupted in the comfort of your home. Call the safety experts at John's Electric today for your FREE, no obligation estimate for a new standby generator installation that’s just right for your home.

What others say about John's Electric Service

My Mother recently came to live with me, and I needed a fan installed in her west-facing room, to keep it cool in the guest room. I had to wait a little bit, but it was worth it. The price was reasonable, I could tell he was conscientious and he made an extra effort to do as much as he could while he was here - including going down through a difficult attic to install, so the wires would not show. Highly recommend. He came with his grandson and they worked a few hours. Hoping to get him back soon for some more work. Thank you, John!

What a pleasure it was dealing with Aubrey of John's electric! We had a breaker that would not reset. Aubrey arrived at our house at exactly the time he said he would. He had the problem diagnosed in under a minute and had us back to normal with all of our garage outlets in under 5 minutes. I know that all service calls can't go that quickly, but he sure found the problem right away and got it fixed immediately. I would strongly recommend this company.
