Standby Generators

A standby generator is a generator that is permanently installed and is connected to natural gas or a propane tank. These generators have the ability to provide power to the whole house, for an extended period, when outages occur.

Standby generators can be purchased in different sizes, so that they can provide the correct amount of electricity that may be needed in a particular home. They must be installed by a professional so that all code compliance is met.

We have the ability to coordinate everything involved with your standby generator installation, including:

  • Site preparation
  • Permits
  • Trenching
  • Gas connection

We have a variety of Generac standby generators in stock, including models from its Guaradian Series, CorePower Series, and QuietSource Series. Already bought a generator? Our factory certified technicians will install your generator, whether it is sold by us or not.

Portable Generators

As the name suggests, a portable generator can be moved around to provide power backup in different locations. You may be able to power a few of your major appliances during power failure but a portable generator will not provide power to your whole home.

Portable generators require set up each time they are used, and must be used in a space that provides plenty of ventilation. These generators run on fuel, be it propane or gasoline, and appliances plugged directly into the generator. A portable generator’s power supply may last around six to eight hours.

If you live in the Virginia Beach area, we can help you determine the right residential generator for your needs. Call American Mechanical to get a free estimate for your home generator installation.
