Home Generators

What's a standby home generator?

A backup home generator keeps your power on during a utility outage. It’s installed outside your house like an AC unit and it comes on automatically - whether you’re home or away. All within seconds of a power outage. Home generators run on propane (LPG) or natural gas - there’s no refueling like with a portable generator.

  • 6 kW-150 kW
  • Ideal for backing up your entire home
  • Automatically starts and restores power in seconds whether you’re home or away
  • Powers critical hard-wired systems like AC, heat, sump pumps, well pumps, security systems and large appliances
  • Delivers high-quality power that won’t harm your electronics. (A portable generator delivers power that can vary in quality/distortion and may not be safe to use with sensitive electronics like TVs and computers)

Michigan Critical Power considers Briggs & Stratton to be our flagship line for our residential installations because of our success with their legendary Fortress line. We also frequently install the Cummins Quiet Connect. Both of their 13kW models have been the perfect fit for dozens of our customers! If not, we can design and install systems from Generac, Kohler or Champion!
