HOME BACKUP POWER. COMFORT. SECURITY. CONVENIENCE.

You never know when a power outage may occur. However, if you have a Whole House Backup Generator installed, neither you nor your family will be in the dark. MLS Electric is your one-stop resource for residential, commercial, and recreational generators. A permanently installed Whole House Backup Generator automatically keeps your home running through lengthy power outages.  Your new generator can run on either natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits just outside your home like an air conditioning unit.

How It Works 

A backup generator is directly connected to your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most important items such as heating and cooling, hot water, kitchen appliances, and a few lights.

What are the Benefits of Whole House Generators?

Investing in a whole-house generator can provide peace of mind and protection for your home and family during power outages.

Unlike portable generators, whole-house generators are permanently installed and automatically turn on when the power goes out, ensuring that your essential appliances and systems continue to function.

Some of the benefits of whole-house generators include:

  • Continuous power supply for your entire home
  • Automatic operation, no need for manual setup
  • Protection against food spoilage, frozen pipes, and other potential damage during outages
  • Increased home value and resale potential
  • Convenience and comfort during extended power outages

    What We Do For You 

    The first thing the MLS Electric does it help you determine the load that you want your generator to serve. Be prepared to list the things that you want the generator to serve. For example some customers want their sump pump, furnace, hot water heater, kitchen refrigerator and outlets, garage freezer, and the living room lights. In most cases a 4000 – 5,000-watt generator will supply all of that load for about 13 gallons of fuel for every per 24 hours.

    We Install a Transfer Switch 

    You should never just plug a generator into a wall outlet. This is called backfeeding to the grid, And It Is Extremely Dangerous!  We make sure that  your home is disconnected from the grid before starting your generator. Otherwise, the electricity generated could travel beyond your house, on to electric the grid and potentially killing utility personnel trying to restore power in your area.

    Whole House Generator Installation

    MLS Electric will install a transfer switch to ensure safety . The transfer switch includes an electrical subpanel with a dedicated switch for each circuit you want to power form your generator. The transfer switch is wired directly to your home’s electrical service, and the generator is then plugged into that subpanel. Throwing (or operating) the transfer switch completely cuts your house off from the grid keeping the first responders working to restore power  safe.  At the same time, the power from the generator is only allowed supply circuits that you have designated.
