Home Generators

Prepare For Anything By Investing In a Home Generator

Home generators are backup power systems that provide electricity to a home in the event of a power outage. They can run on various fuel sources such as natural gas, propane, gasoline, and diesel. These generators come in different sizes and capacities and can be portable or permanently installed. They can provide power to essential appliances and lighting during an outage, ensuring the continuous supply of electricity.

A home standby generator will keep you and your family warm and safe. In an emergency situation, you will be able to carry on with your life without interruption.

An experienced electrician can help start the process of installing a home standby generator so that you are ready for the next power outage.

The Benefits of a Generator

The benefits of having a generator at home include:

  1. Reliable power supply during outages: A generator ensures a continuous supply of electricity during power outages, allowing you to keep essential appliances and lights running.
  2. Increased safety: During power outages, a generator can provide lighting and power to essential appliances such as refrigerators, sump pumps, and medical equipment.
  3. Protection of sensitive electronics: A generator can protect sensitive electronics, such as computers and televisions, from damage during a power surge.
  4. Convenient: A generator can provide electricity during outdoor activities, such as camping or tailgating, or in remote locations where traditional power sources are not available.
  5. Increased property value: Installing a generator can increase the value of your property, making it more attractive to potential buyers.
  6. Peace of mind: Knowing that you have a backup power source in case of an emergency can provide peace of mind and increase overall comfort.

Common items include things such as fridges and heating, but more complicated items may also be on the list. Keep in mind that some items may require permits, inspections, and proper installation and may need an activation.

The team at TDR has been amazing to work with - I can’t say enough good things about them. When you hire any trade to help you there’s a lot of trust put in them to do what they are asked to do but my experience with them is they go above and beyond and they think outside the box to make the job the best it could possibly be, make it workable for the business and they really take pride in their work. Liam and his team have been professional, helpful, and accommodating, and brought ideas for my business I hadn’t even thought about to improve it and I’m so grateful for that!

We have used TDR's services for home improvements (light installation) and they were prompt and professional. More recently, TDR has been working with our strata to identify options for Electric Vehicle charging in our complex. They provided our council with an EV Ready Plan which was approved and reimbursed by BC Hydro, and Taylor has helped us immensely in understanding not only the technical aspects of an EV charging system installation but also the requirements under the ever-changing rebate system.

I highly recommend this company. Very easy to work with and I couldn't be happier with the quality of work from new plug outlets, to lighting installations, and wiring the ceiling for a fan and installation.
