    Home Generators

    Do You Need a Home Generator? Weather-related natural disasters are on the rise, and while they aren't the only cause for widespread power outages, they are a huge concern. Other threats to your home power include critters damaging power lines, vehicle accidents that knock down poles, or failure on the power grid. Power outages can be unexpected, which is why your home should be protected with a backup generator.

    Why Have a Home Generator? When your power goes out, it affects more than the lights. During a widespread power outage caused by an ice storm or heavy snow during frigid winter months, a home generator keeps the heat on, so your family can stay warm and comfortable. During the summer, your air conditioner is vital to keeping you cool in sweltering temperatures. If you have an electric stove and oven, our generators let you maintain your ability to cook. A freezer full of meat can spoil in less than 48 hours without power, but a generator will keep everything frozen and safe to eat. Generators are especially essential if you or a loved one depends on medical devices that require electricity.

    How Can Colorado Standby Help? Here at Colorado Standby we provide automatic standby generators to the entire nation. Installation of generators can be tricky for homeowners, but our experienced and certified staff will get the job done right. We handle the process from beginning to end, from helping you pick the generator that is right for you to permitting, full installation, warranty testing, and even preventative maintenance. Contact us today for all your home generator needs!

    The purchase of a backup generator is a wise one, especially for businesses and companies that may be affected, as well as homes. If you're looking for a backup house generator for sale, we've got you covered. 

    For Your Business or Company

    Companies with a backup generator are certainly at an advantage when a severe storm affects their area. Companies that deal with shipping dates, order deadlines, sales, and production all need to work effectively and in a timely manner. In the winter, many companies are unable to heat their buildings when power is lost, and a lack of electricity means it may not be safe for employees to remain. However, with a backup generator, you can power your company or business and continue to complete tasks on time. Even a few hours without power or services provided can hurt a business's earnings and hurt the owner and the business's reputation.

    For Your Home

    Homeowners find that diesel generators are very important during and after a storm. In the winter, a loss of power can spell disaster when the temperature drops quite low. Many families have young children or elderly relatives who require comfort and security, and in times of drastic cold or heat, this comfort is threatened. There is more at risk than discomfort, though, as refrigerated and frozen foods can spoil. Homeowners need to be aware of the danger of losing power.If your business or home does not have a generator in case of emergency, you may be hurting yourself and putting your company or family at risk.
