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

Aubrey did an excellent job with moving our electrical main service. He coordinated with Alabama Power and the Hoover inspectors and everyone was there when they should be. He knew that we needed a special disconnect and ordered the right one. We gave him a key and trusted him to be in and out of the house and yard when he needed to. He kept us informed, did a quality job and went over and above to come out to check on things for us after hours one evening and teach us a few things. Reasonable price as well. A true professional and I will recommend him again.

Service was above and beyond excellent. Stuck with us and the power company until the true root of the problem was found. Worked around our schedule and budget restraints. Left things clean and was very respectful. Would definitely recommend him and use him again.
