Stand-by Generator

rs20atrioA standby generator can bring a sense of safety and security to a home or business. When utility power fails, a standby generator restores power to all connected circuits within as little as 10 seconds. Likewise, when utility power is finally restored, the generator automatically transfers power back to the utility as it begins to power down the generator.

Everything is automatic. All you need do is operate business as usual and enjoy life without interruption.

SciFiHomes can design a standby generator system to fit your home, business, lifestyle and budget. A standby generator system can be designed to run the entire structure, or for the budget conscious, just a few selective “essential circuits”. The price point for a standby system is quite affordable and we have financial partners offering a variety of financing alternatives, including 0% financing on certain models.

ScifiHomes is an Authorized Dealer for three leading manufacturers: Cummins Onan, Generac Power Systems, and Briggs & Stratton Power Systems. Our service techs are factory-trained by each manufacturer.
