Honda Generators

Power outtages during a storm are scary and more than an inconvenience. Even a power loss of a few hours may compromise the safety of your family and result in damage to your home. A quiet, reliable Honda generator can keeps you connected to weather updates; avoid water damge by keeping your sump pump running; prevent broken pipes by powering your furnace and avoid food spoilage in your refrigerator. 

Most homeowners have some basic questions when exploring portable generators. If you lose power infrequently, then consider the versatitility and portability of the smaller EU-Series generators (EU1000i, EU2000i). If power outages are common at your property, I encourage homeowners to install a home transfer switch and explore the EU3000iS, EM4000 or EM5000. For the ultimate home backup solution, Honda's EU7000iS delivers unmatched performance.

I hope this brief preview simplifies which generator suits your needs. If you have any questions, our staff is happy to help anytime.

Honda Super Quiet Generators

All Honda generators provide stable power, but the EU-Series delivers clean power at an incredibly quiet level. Raw power passes through a microprocessor to delivery power stable enough to operate the most sensitive electronics without the fear of surges. This means you can plug computers, televisions and even charge smart phones directly off these generators.

What is a Transfer Switch?

A transfer switch installs near your home circuit panel (fuse box). You plug your generator into this switch with a special outlet and cable. The advantages of a transfer switch are
  • Power is isolated to specific circuits at your discretion (furnace, sump pump, ktichen, master bedroom)
  • The generator can be safely operated outside of your home
  • Generator's power does not go outside the house or building
