Protect your home, family, and your valuables with a whole-house generator.
Consider your generator an insurance policy when a heavy storm barges through the South Jersey Shore and knocks out the power. From appliances to laptops, these generators provide you with peace of mind knowing you can still use electricity when the power goes off.
Our licensed team at Comfort Now has the training and tools to expertly install a whole-house generator at your Egg Harbor Township, NJ home. We can find a good spot in your yard to set up the concrete pad for your generator and extend the gas line necessary to fuel it.
We’ll work together to evaluate your needs during a temporary outage to determine the correct model and load size for your home and lifestyle. The higher the generator’s capacity, the more circuits it can power simultaneously.

How Does a Whole-House Generator Operate?
Whole-house generators are sometimes referred to as a “fixed standby generator.” Whenever there is a power outage or equipment failure, the whole-house generator will automatically provide power straight to your home’s electrical panel, even if you are not home. This protects your food and your appliances—especially if you are gone for an extended period.
When the generator detects a disruption in the current, an automatic transfer switch disconnects from your utility and sends electricity to your panel. Running on your home’s natural gas line, the generator can keep your home powered for days. When the electric company restores service, your generator will return to standby mode.
Whole-House Generators vs. Portable Generators
Portable generators provide an excellent source of energy for camping, tailgating, and other outdoor gatherings. They are not designed to power your home for extended periods—and can quickly overheat.
Permanently installed, standby generators are better suited for providing backup power to the home. They ensure you’ll never be without power, and they add value to your Egg Harbor Township property.
Whole-House Generators Installation and Replacement
Most homeowners will choose a generator that runs on natural gas. If it proves difficult to extend a gas line to your preferred location, then a propane-powered generator is your best alternative. Your third option is diesel—but remember that both diesel and propane require storage tanks. Comfort Now has the experts for the job and will recommend the best option for a Generac backup generator for your home!
For safety reasons, it makes more sense to have our team install your generator. The project deals with several aspects of electricity, and when working with electricity, it is always the wisest decision to have a licensed professional on the job.
