Our lives depend on it. When the power goes out, it becomes obvious how necessary it is to daily living - heating, cooling, refrigeration, cooking, bathing, and lighting. Other daily essentials are equally important, such as powering cell phones, operating the garage door opener, heating the hot tub, and more.

Unpredictable weather and unforeseen outages are often more than inconvenient, they can cause considerable losses - in regards to material possessions and human safety. You can protect your home, your possessions, and the safety of you and your loved ones with a standby generator that switches on automatically when the power goes out.

Deciding what type and size generator is right for your home can be determined by the amount of power you will need in the event of an outage. An estimate can be made by visiting with one of DAK's Customer Service Representatives. They are happy to lend their expertise for any questions you may have.

What is a standby generator?

Standby Generators provide automatic backup electricity for your air conditioner, appliances, lights, TVs or computers and give you the peace of mind to take charge during power outages.

A Standby Generator:

  • Turns on and off automatically
  • Is connected to your home's electrical system
  • Senses power loss within seconds of an outage and transfers the electrical load to the generator
  • Runs on Natural Gas (NG) or Liquid Propane (LP) Gas
  • Can power select circuits or your whole household
  • Is permanately installed by licenced professionals, such as Powerdak

How does a stanby generator work?

  1. When power fails, the automatic transfer switch recognizes the outage from the utilty line. 
  2. The transfer switch signals the standby generator, which is then "switched" on and provides backup power to your home until power is restored. 
  3. When utility power is restored, the transfer switch will again signal the generator to shut down until it is needed again.

Things to know before you buy!

All standby generators should be installed by a licensed professional like Powerdak or licensed electrician. 

Does your home use Natural Gas (NG) or Liquid Propane (LP) Gas?

Standby generators provide automatic backup power in a power outage and are permanently installed either to a natural gas line or a liquid propane fuel source.

What size, in AMPS, of your electrical service?

A standby generator needs to be connected to the appropriate automatic transfer switch to operate properly. Transfer switches are sized by the amperage demands of the home's electrical service, and therefore are offered in ranges from 50 Amps to 200 Amps. Many newer homes include 200 Amp service to accomodate increasing demand for electrical power.
