Whole Home Backup Generators

Generators Offer More Control and Flexibility with Your Power Options

A permanently installed home backup generator protects your home and enables you to be comfortable when your home loses power. Home generators run on natural gas and sit outside of your home, just like a central HVAC unit.

With a home backup generator, your home’s electrical system will be automatically supplied with power during an outage, allowing you to stay comfortable and productive until your utility company is able to restore power to your home.

What are my options?

Home generators come in many shapes and sizes. They can be used to restore power to an entire home or just power the essentials, such as your refrigerator. Arnold Electric installs backup generators to run sump pumps, security lighting, air conditioning units, water heaters, and everything in between.

What to Consider When Selecting a Backup System:

  • Would you rather have the transfer to backup power be manual or automatic? Automatic transfers keep the electricity flowing even when you’re away from home. If you’re at work or out of town, you can rest assured knowing that you won’t come home to a disaster resulting from a power loss.
  • Are you only worried about a few key systems, or do you want to ensure full comfort and convenience through any outage period and back up the entire house?

Arnold Electric can customize a backup power generation system for your specific needs based on your budget, priorities, and what will give you full peace of mind.

If a backup generator is part of your safety plan, call us at (773) 647-1120 or request a service today so one of our licensed electricians can help you.

What Our Clients Say

Fantastic Service

I have used Arnold Electric a few times for my business. I wasn’t sure what my options were for lighting in my office. Jack was so nice to bring some samples for me to try before installing! They are wonderful!

Dr. Lauren Shultz

Reliable and Professional

The team over at Arnold Electric has been great to work with. We recently purchased a home and have had Pedro out to do a review of the electrical system, make some minor repairs and present some options to improve the out dated and DIY wiring in our home. The team has done a great job of communicating expectations and explaining everything for us.

Kirk Heavner

Excellent Work

Very easy to work with, excellent work on jobs big (new underground line to a detached garage) and small (changing the interior fixture.

Lauren Harms

Punctual, Courteous and Clean

This company is absolutely the most professional and conscientious electrical contractor I’ve ever had the pleasure of hiring. I’ve used them several times from things like replacing my electrical panel, to wiring issues, to installing a ceiling fan. I will also use them for anything else electrical going forward. They’re always punctual, courteous and clean. I’m very particular, and hard to please. I’m not afraid to call and complain about less than perfect service from anyone I hire. Arnold Electrical Service, thank you for all the jobs well done!

Debbie Neer

Fair Pricing and Excellent Work

Jack’s team came in and did a complete home inspection and repaired a light above my wife’s sink. My marriage has been saved now that the light is fixed. Very fair pricing and excellent work!

Douglas Sheehan

Reasonable Price & Professional

Joe came to my house to fix a dumb thing I did. (DON’T DO YOUR OWN ELECTRICAL WORK!) He was friendly, fast and very helpful, answering all my questions in a polite and tolerant manner.
The charges were very reasonable for the professional quality service I received. They will be coming back to do some new wiring and circuits soon. Highly Recommend!
