Convert your home electrical panel to a Manual TransfercSwitch, with an InterLock Kit

In the advent of an outage, home generators provide worry-free emergency power to support your electrical needs for days or even weeks.

With a generator, your life doesn’t have to stop when the power does.

With a GP Series portable generator, you get affordable reliability and features not usually found on basic portable models. That’s why these generators are a favorite for home use, camping, job sites, or outdoor events.


Trying to perform your own electrical work or finding cheap labor is never a good idea. Inexperienced labor might be cheap but very costly in the long run because you will be held accountable for any work performed that does not conform to these codes and laws.

Don’t compromise the safety of you and your family. The risks are too great to leave to chance.

How To Save Energy

How To Save Energy


Close the flue damper in a wood-burning fireplace to keep air-conditioned air from going up the chimney.


Use appliances at night to help reduce the energy load on your power provider.


The “peak hours” are the busiest for electric utilities, and during summer those hours are typically between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. You can help keep costs down by doing some of your household chores before or after peak hours.


Close shades, blinds, or drapes on east-, south-, and west-facing windows to reflect heat away from the house. Better yet, install awnings to repel heat before it reaches windows and doors.


When showering, turn on a bathroom exhaust fan to remove humidity. If using an air conditioner, don’t let the exhaust fan run longer than necessary because it will remove expensive air-conditioned air.


For clothes that need ironing, remove them from the dryer while they are still damp. While the iron is hot, iron several items rather than just one or two.


For safety and energy efficiency, install solar powered or low- voltage lights along garden paths and walkways.


Plant an evergreen tree wind-break on the northern and northwestern sides of your home to block cold winter winds.


As you prepare your home for those upcoming colder months, weatherize doors and windows with caulking, weather stripping and plastic to prevent cold air from entering your home.


Don’t forget to save an additional 5 percent during the annual Energy Sales Tax Holiday in Virginia.
