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

Few 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.

"Great Service, Awesome Price!"

Was pleased from the minute we met Jim Fish, the owner, and his explanation of the product options and what to expect when installation began. He was right on time with each meeting and once the rain stopped his first crew showed up right on time, and laid the slap/foundation for the generator. The next crew arrived a few days later just as planned and they delivered the generator and began work on the gas line and electrical installation. Both teams worked really well together and very hard workers, polite, and answered questions all along the way. Once it started up, they gave us lessons, answered more questions, and cleaned up the area completely and hauled off all the packaging, and made sure there was no trash left by them. Great from start to end. Thank you Jim, Yvonne, and Stacy for all your email communications and scheduling of appointments. It started right on time and hopefully there won't be any need for the generator, but if that happens, then we can sleep very comfortably during a power failure. Thank you
