Can you live without your power?

Imagine waking up, and you look at your clock, and you see nothing but a blank screen. You grab your cell phone to see what time it is, and you realize you are one hour late to work. You quickly realize that you have no power. You just missed one of the most important business meetings of your life.

You frantically call your supervisor and tell them what happens, and you will try to get there as fast as you can. However, the truth is, you are too late.

You get ready as fast as you can and go to the garage and get into your car. Then you realize the garage door won’t open because there is no power. From there it just spirals downhill.

This is just one story of what can happen when you lose power.

Now I want you to imagine waking up on time. You have power, and everything is normal. You get ready for work; you get into your car and take off. However, on your way out of the neighborhood, you notice that no one has any power. So the first thought that comes to you is “I’m sure glad I invested in a Whole-House Generator.” You had power when you woke up, and you made that life-changing meeting.

We have countless stories would tell you just like this. Some are worse; some have been life threating. We need electricity, and we rely on electricity. For many people, not having electricity is life threating.

If you want peace of mind knowing that you will never lose power, then it’s time to call Switched Electric.

Home Generators

How many times here in San Francisco have you lost power? It has happened so many times that I can’t even keep track. With all the storms, occasional earthquakes and the temporarily cut offs from our own utility companies; it seems that power is always going off.

Losing your electricity is aggravating and annoying. For those who have medical conditions, it can be potentially life-threatening. That’s why having a generator installed can be one of the best investments you can make for yourself and your family. Not only will you have power when you need it, a generator will increase your home’s value.

There is no greater time to have a generator installed. With all the storms that have hit the US, there is a great demand for generators. Prices seem to go up by the week, and generators are hard to get.

When you have a generator installed by Switched Electric, you will get the best bang for your buck, and you will get unparalleled customer service. Investing in a generator is a big project, and you don’t want a rookie to handle such a job. We will give your home a complete evaluation to see what the best option is for you and your family. We handle the evaluation, design & drawling’s, permits, installations, and inspections. We also handle the gas hookup coordination.

In Good Hands

There is only one thing you have to do, and that enjoys the peace of mind knowing that you will always have power from your generator in the event of a power outage, blackout or a whiteout, you will have peace of mind knowing that you will still be able to use your heating and A/C, Medical equipment, lighting and your food in your refrigerator and freezer won’t go bad.

We have many options to choose from. Your standby generator will employ an automatic transfer switch which monitors the incoming utility company power supply, starts the generator, and transfers the load automatically, and upon return of utility power after the power outage, it automatically transfers the load back to the utility power supply, continues to run the generator for a brief cool-down period, and then shuts down the generator. It is ready for the next power outage.

No Time for Maintenance?

If that is the case, then that is OK. Automatic Standby Generators are self-exercising, and start and run for a brief period at your preset time once each week. In this way, your Automatic Standby Generator is always ready for the call of duty. We can handle all routine maintenance and repairs on your generator too.

Durable and Quiet

Quiet, yet Powerful! Our systems come prepackaged in a weatherproof, sound insulated enclosure. They use clean-burning natural gas or propane fuel, not smelly gasoline or diesel fuel.

What about my house?

All houses and needs are different. We offer generator systems in an extensive range of capacities to ensure all your power needs are met when there is a power-supply failure. From 7kW right up to 150kW, the systems are either propane or natural gas powered, and either air or liquid cooled.

Don’t be left in the dark!

Overall I was very pleased with Switched Electric's work. I originally had them out for the security light, and then based upon that job brought them out for future jobs. Each job was completed as scheduled and with high quality workmanship. Work site was also completely cleaned when done. And time has passed since job completion—and all is working well.
