A standby generator keeps your power on and your family
safe during a power outage. It’s installed outside of
your home (like an AC unit) and comes on automatically —
whether you’re home or not. All within seconds of a power outage.

Your family’s comfort and safety is NWI Generator’s number one priority.
That’s why our home standby generators sense
outages and turn themselves on within seconds when there’s a utility power outage.

How a Home Generator Works

An automatic standby generator is a back-up electrical system that automatically supplies power directly to your home’s electrical circuit breaker box. Within seconds of losing power to your home, it senses this and automatically turns on whether you are home or not. Once on, your home generator works with your home’s electrical system to deliver power to lights, appliances, heating and cooling systems. After the utility power returns, the generator will automatically shut itself off. The generator operates on natural gas or liquid propane and sits outside much like your air conditioning unit.

Different home generator systems deliver different backup power strengths. We would be happy to explain all of your options. Our skilled power specialists can show you a selection of high quality, recommended home power generators to meet your needs.



When you purchase a standby generator from NWI Generator, you get more than a great price, you also get fast and professional installation from our expert service technicians. We know your time is valuable, and we also know that it’s important to have your generator system up and running quickly. We pride ourselves on our timely and courteous service.

How Much Will Installation Cost?

Every home is different, and so is every installation. The placement of the generator, the amount of materials required, and the connection of the natural gas or LP fuel source require individual evaluations. The most accurate way to know for sure is to call the professionals at NWI Generator in Crown Point, Indiana. They will listen to your needs, schedule an appointment to assess your home, and then give you a detailed quote. All at no charge, with no obligation, and no pressure.

You’ve invested in a home standby generator to protect what is important, but just like your car, backup generators need to be properly maintained to perform as intended. The experts at NWI Generator can provide you with a correct maintenance schedule to keep your home generator operating at optimal efficiency. Properly.
