Frequently Asked Questions

  • If I have an issue with my generator, will Texas Gas Service repair my generator equipment?
    No, Canter Power Systems will provide all installation and servicing. 
  • How does the generator work?
    The generator is permanently installed outside your home, like a central air conditioning unit. During a power outage, the generator is designed to detect a problem. The generator automatically turns on and uses the natural gas serving your home. No fuel storage is required. Once power is restored, the generator automatically turns off. Please consult with Canter Power Systems for details.
