Residential Generators for Home Standby Use

At Smith’s Diesel and Power Systems, we sell a variety of brand name residential generators for backup power in the event of an emergency, or unplanned power outage.

Smith’s Diesel and Power is located just outside Saint John, New Brunswick, on the east coast of Canada.  We’re just an hour from the state of Maine in the USA.  If you purchase a home generator from us we can ship it anywhere in Canada or the United States.

If you already have a propane, natural gas or diesel generator that needs an overhaul, or repair, we service most makes and models of residential and industrial generators.

How Home Standby Generators Work

Our residential generators are designed to run in standby mode…meaning they turn on when your power goes out…either automatically, or manually.

The homeowner chooses which circuits will receive backup power in the event of an unplanned power outage. Whether you’re home, or away, you can program the generator to kick in within seconds of the power outage and turn off again when the power comes on.

There are many different types of home generators, which you purchase will depend in part on how much power you need.

In other words, will your generator backup small electronics, such as a lamp, computer and coffee maker; or would you like it to also backup mission critical appliances, such as your fridge, stove and freezer; or do you need enough power to support hard-wired appliances such as your water pump, water heater and furnace?

We can help you decide! Please call us to discuss your needs and we’ll recommend the best home standby generators to protect your home.
