Why Buy a Home Generator?

One of the main reasons to buy a home generator is never to be left in the dark again. Power outages leave your home's most important appliances idle, such as your furnace or air conditioner, refrigerator, and freezer. One way to avoid these inconveniences is with a home generator. During outages, a generator can supply backup power, ensuring your critical appliances and devices keep functioning.

The 4 Largest Benefits of a Home Generator

  • Peace of Mind: A home generator ensures you and your loved ones remain comfortable and safe during a power outage. It automatically powers essential appliances and systems, reducing stress and uncertainty.
  • Damage Prevention: By activating immediately when the power goes out, a generator keeps your appliances and equipment running without interruption. This prevents damage that can occur from sudden power loss.
  • Improved Safety: Generators protect your family during extended blackouts and can deter crime by maintaining outdoor lighting and security systems. They are safer than gasoline backup generators, running on propane or natural gas and being installed outdoors.
  • Increased Home Value: Installing a home generator can boost your property’s value by at least half its cost, especially in areas prone to severe weather. It’s a valuable investment that pays off in both convenience and resale value.


How to Choose Between a Portable or Standby Home Generator

Portable generators and standby generators are the two most common generator types for homes. Either type has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, with some of the biggest differences in price and power output abilities. Confused about which one you should buy? Read our guide on portable vs standby home generators.

A whole-house generator is worth installing for homeowners who experience frequent power outages during the year. A backup generator can keep your home’s power uninterrupted, whether it be from weather or interruptions in your area’s electrical grid.

The cost of installing a residential generator in your Southeast Wisconsin home can range between $1,500 - $20,000. Final costs can depend on several factors: power requirements, fuel type, portability, and how much of the house you’d want to remain operational in a power outage.

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.

Mike Schreiber

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.
