Planning for an Emergency Is No Time to Take Shortcuts

How can you be sure your standby generator really is standing by?

In our experience, about a third of the generators we see for the first time aren’t ready to start because they haven’t been sized, installed, and maintained Properly

GPS-35Yrs-Kohler20Few things in life feel better than — when placed in a moment of testing and trouble — your forethought and planning allows you to sidestep all the aggravation, discomfort, and possible danger.

But few things are as aggravating as planning ahead only to have your back-up plan fail! Yet a shocking number of standby generators fail when they’re finally called on. Why?

Because if your standby generators aren’t properly sized, sourced, and installed, they simply won’t work the way you need when you need them.

In fact, you could say that we’re slightly obsessed with reliability.

Here’s how we make sure your system works for you when its moment of truth arrives.

Because Generator Power Systems is owned and operated by one of Houston’s most respected master electricians and we are known both for the quality of our work and the reliability of the standy power systems we put in place.

Excellent Installation and Follow-Through.

After several years of drooling, researching, and debating the pro's and con's of having a whole home standby generator I decided it was time to get one. Within the first week after the generator was installed the service transformer blew at 4:45am. Scared me out of bed with a Loud Bang, total silence for 10 seconds, then heard my Kohler starting and power was back on. As for GPS, I did my research... They're not the cheapest, they even tell you that up front, they're also not the most expensive either! I truly believe in "You get what you pay for." After speaking to 6 area generator companies GPS won my business hands down after Mike talked with me for over an hour about what I was wanting, expecting, and needing. I'm rather picky about how things are done, especially to my home! Every other company insisted that the generator should be installed right by the meter and I would never hear it inside - my room is on the other side of the wall from the meter. Mike listened to my concerns and agreed with my proposed placement location. From that point until final install everything was flawless! We did have an issue with an activation code for the Kohler OnCue Module, but after speaking with Yvonne Fish, the issue was resolved quickly. Overall Very Pleased and will gladly recommend GPS to anyone interested in a Stand-by Generator!
