Why Purchase a Standby Generator from Switch Electric

With over a decade of experience and a reputation for exceptional service, it’s no wonder that homeowners across the Pacific Northwest choose Switch Electric for their standby generator purchase, installation, and service needs. Here’s what sets us apart from other generator dealers in the Seattle and Walla Walla metropolitan areas.

Affordable Options

A standby generator is a major investment. Switch Electric can help you get the most out of it. We offer competitive service rates and financing options for every budget, including our installation and service package, The Switch Advantage, which provides you with a brand-new backup power system, along with any future maintenance or repairs, for a low monthly fee.

Turnkey Solutions

Standby generators are permanently installed, usually on the side of a house. They are set to turn on automatically, even if you’re away from home, so after the power goes out, you won’t need to connect cables or flip any switches to start your generator. Depending on the model you choose, you can also power your entire home with your standby generator.

Authorized Generac Dealer

Switch Electric is an authorized Generac generator dealer. When you purchase your standby generator from an authorized dealer, you get a full warranty on it. If you work with an unauthorized dealer and your generator breaks down, you may have to pay for repairs or replacement on your own. By purchasing a generator from an authorized dealer like Switch, you can save money and enjoy greater peace of mind when the power goes out.

Your Standby Generator FAQs Answered

Whether you’ve just purchased a standby generator or you’ve owned one for years, we can answer your questions about this option to keep your appliances running during a power outage.

Can I use a standby generator to power my entire home?

Yes. Some standby generator models can power an entire home. We can discuss these options with you as part of your free quote.

What are some disadvantages of using a standby generator?

If you don’t have the budget for a standby generator that can supply enough power for your entire household, you may be limited on which appliances you can use during a power outage. For example, you may not be able to switch off the circuit powering your coffee pot to light up your home office as it can be hard to change which circuits are connected.

How large of a standby generator do I need?

The type of standby generator you need depends on how much electricity you use and what type of circuits you want to back up during an outage. A typical home needs a 7,000-watt generator to keep the basics, like HVAC systems and refrigerators, running. However, we can work with you to find the best possible solution for your specific needs and household size.
