Home/Commercial Generators in Charleston SC

Are you looking for an electric generator in Charleston SC?

You have come to the right place! We specialize in the distribution, installation, maintenance, and repair of home and commercial electric generators.

A few years ago, it was seldom thought that owning a generator was a good investment. However, today we see many homeowners and commercial building owners investing in generators that eventually save thousands of dollars in lost work and materials. Most recently, during the ice storms and inclement weather we saw in South Carolina, homeowners that had a generator were able to continue to live with electricity. Many property owners simply cannot afford to ride out another power outage. Instead, they are installing home standby generators in record numbers to protect their families, employees, tenants, and investments.

Selecting a standby generator system is simple:

You pick a standby generator and an automatic transfer switch in a bundled package.
Standby generators are rated by kilowatts, which basically measures the machine’s strength and endurance:

First:

You need to decide if you want to power your central air conditioner during a blackout.

In Charleston SC, life can be miserable during a summer sweltering blackout. If you want to run your central air conditioner, you need a strong generator capable of turning over a high-powered motor. In order to size your central air conditioner, simply take a good look at its metal data plate. It will tell you either its Tons, BTUs or Amps.

Second:

You’re buying a standby generator to replace the electricity lost from the utility company. If your electrical panel has a 200-amp main breaker, the maximum amount of electricity your home can consume is 200 amps.

Third:

Decide if you need an air-cooled generator or a liquid-cooled generator. According to our friends at RUUD, the following generators and features are most common for Charleston SC.
