Home Generators

Why get a home generator?

Home generators are one of the ultimate luxuries, especially if you live in a region that suffers frequent storms or power outages. With a home generator, you can keep the lights — and the A/C — on during an outage, providing your family with much-needed comfort.

Why buy from HBI?

We are a certified dealer for only the very best home generator brands, including Briggs & Stratton, Cummins, Onan, Hipower and Stateline.

HBI does not simply drop off a generator and wish you luck. We lead every step of the process: from determining your needs based on your electrical usage, to installing a concrete pad, making any electrical upgrades needed and hooking up your home generator.

Our service department is available 24/7 if you need anything. Customer aftercare isn’t an afterthought — it sits at the core of how we do business.

The Process

Step 1

Determine your electrical usage, ignoring smaller items like coffee pots, televisions, etc. This list should include larger items, such as air conditioners, hot water heaters, furances, hot tubs, pools, car chargers or wired shops.

Step 2

Once we have determined your electrical needs, we can help you choose a location to put the home generator. Popular locations are in the garden, along the side or rear of the home. There are certain requirements in terms of spacing from gas or electrical meters, distance from the building and distance from windows.

Step 3

Now that we have chosen the right generator and transfer switch, and know where we going to place these items, we can price the equipment and provide an estimate to you.

Step 4

We can now begin the installation process. A pre-cast concrete pad will be laid down. The generator and transfer switch will be delivered and installed. We work with local electricians and gas fitters to get this done.
