What is an automatic standby generator?
An automatic standby generator is a back-up electrical system that operates whether you are at home or away. It automatically supplies power to essential circuits of your home within seconds of a utility outage. After utility power returns, the generator shuts itself off and awaits the next outage. It operates on natural gas or liquid propane and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit.

What will it power?
Generators supply electricity to the electrical panel circuits of your home through a built-in load center. You select the number of circuits you want to protect and match it to the appropriate generator system. Everything on that circuit will be protected. The also power furnaces, air conditioners, well pumps, water heaters and other appliances that are hard wired into your electrical panel.

Why should I buy an automatic standby generator instead of a portable generator?
While portable generators do supply power, an automatic standby generator produces a higher quality of electricity. It operates automatically and runs a weekly self-test to ensure proper response to your needs. There are no extension cords to plug in and no gas tanks to fill. It operates automatically so it protects your home even when you’re away. When utility power returns, the standby generator shuts itself off.

What is the difference between air-cooled and liquid-cooled?
Liquid-cooled has a radiator and a small car engine.

Do they have to be maintained?
Absolutely. CFPS offers one of the most comprehensive maintenance plans around. We offer emergency calls and 24 hour service at no extra cost.

What is the advantage of an aluminum enclosure?
Aluminum does not rust, which will prolong the life and look of the generator. Also, it will run quieter.

How do I select a generator that’s right for me?
Let the CFPS experts calculate and size the right generator for you.

How long does it take to install an automatic standby generator?
All installations are different, but most can be installed in a day if you already have a concrete slab.

Who should install the generator?
CFPS offers complete service and installation. Always hire a licensed contractor for any generator installation.

The generator that I’ve chosen has a 100-amp automatic transfer switch. What if I have 200-amp service?
CFPS will install all generators to code, so there will be no overload on the system.

The cost is about the same when

What type of generator should I invest in?

 

Diesel    or   Gaseous (liquid propane/natural gas)

 

The equipment cost is about the same when factoring in the fuel tank cost and installation required for a gaseous unit.

 

Diesel units are self contained and do not need an extra tank.

 

Diesel burns about 75% less fuel then a gaseous generator.

 

Gaseous has no shelf life for fuel compared to diesel which has a 2 year shelf life.

 

Natural Gas generators are meter based (pay as you go) fuel.

 

LP and Diesel fuel is paid for in bulk deliveries.

 

Diesel fuel is more reliable and readily available than LP. (Liquid Propane).

 

Diesel generators are easier to maintain than gaseous generators.
