Choosing an Electric Backup Generator

So, what’s involved in choosing the best standby generator for your home? It’s simple if you have certified electricians to help out. When you book an estimate with MF Electric, we’ll come to your home and take a look at your whole electrical system as well as what appliances you use regularly.

Ensuring that everything can be powered in the event of a blackout is important. By examining wattage, we can recommend a variety of generator backup systems at different price points.

Staying up to Code

Electrical installations need to follow certain codes, guidelines, and permit requests. At MF Electric we have years of experience working with these and will take care of everything involved in this process.


In order to ensure that your generator is always ready to run at peak performance during a power outage, generator manufactures recommend a yearly inspection and maintenance.

MF Electric staff are trained to test your generator on it’s performance and will come to do the annual inspection including the oil change. We exchange the spark plugs, insert a new oil filter with fresh synthetic oil, add a new air filter were applicable and test the transfer switch for it’s proper operation.

KOHLER Vs Generac:

Even though we can install Generac generators, we truly believe that KOHLER generators are a better investment. In our northern climate, ice storms cause environmental conditions that may cause carburetor icing, which in turn can be the cause for the generator engine failing to start. That is the time when you need it most.

Although they may be a larger investment, KOHLER generators have been proven to be more reliable.

Don’t Be in the Dark

Home generator installation is important for those who work at home, but also a great investment for any homeowner.
