Frequently Asked Questions on Generators

Are backup generators worth it?

Backup generators are worth it for homeowners who want a reliable source of backup power in the event of a power outage. Backup generators are worth it for business owners who have sensitive products or critical systems and equipment and who serve customers or patients where the business staying operational during a power outage is crucial.

How does a backup generator work?

  1. An automatic transfer switch (ATS) senses a power outage and sends a signal to the backup generator to start up.
  2. The backup generator’s engine generates electrical energy from mechanical energy.
  3. The new electrical energy is distributed to the electrical panel of the building via the ATS.
  4. Once power on the main grid is restored, the ATS signals the backup generator to shut off, returning it to standby mode until needed again.

Don't just take our word for it!

Ideal electric did a great job on the installation of our generator and also the outlets and switches. Great pricing and service and will recommend their services to others I know.

Randy Jacobson

I've had two great experiences with Jeremy and Ideal Electric, the most recent was installing a whole house generator. Not only was Jeremy able to do the job substantially cheaper than some of the bigger names, but he did an excellent job, and I can tell that he really cares about the quality of his work and taking care of his customers. I would 100% trust him for all my future electrical needs - I have total confidence that he'll do the job well, and at a fair price.

Ray Kramer

We had a Generac whole house generator installed by Ideal Electric. Prior to installation, we had questions and communicated via email. Jeremy (the owner) responded quickly and answered all our questions. He and his crew came on the day they said they would. The installation process took a day which is what he had said. They cleaned up everything and even vacuumed in our basement. I would highly recommend Ideal Electric for any of electric needs.

I had another electrician install my Generac emergency generator, unfortunately. After 3 weeks of having the other guy back, I found Jeremy. He not only is a generac dealer, he is a certified technician on them. He was able to remedy the issue that has been a headache for me since the original hookup . I would strongly urge and recommend him to my family and friends.
