Reliable generators & service you can count on

I’m Darrin Coleman, owner of Mountain Generator Services.

I understand the fear and confusion around choosing the right generator for your home or business and keeping it maintained.

With more than 20 years of experience selling and servicing generators, I can help ensure you get a generator that suits your needs and works when you need it most.

Keep the power on in 3 easy steps:

1

Find your generator

I'll arrange to visit you at your home or business to assess your needs and discuss options for which generator would be best for you.

2

Install your generator

I will handle your installation at your home and business and test the generator to ensure it will start up when the power goes out.

3

Maintain your generator

I offer an annual maintenance plan intended to keep your generator functioning properly, and to maintain your warranty.

What you should ask before you buy:

What size of generator do I need?

The size and kW capabilities of your generator should match your individual needs.

The first thing you need to decide is what you want to keep running in a power outage, only the basics, or the entire house or business.

How long is the warranty?

The warranty for generators varies by brand and reseller. It’s important to compare the length and terms of your generator’s warranty.

Briggs & Stratton, which is the only brand sold by Mountain Generator Services, has the longest warranty of any generator on the market. Find out more (opens in PDF).

What's involved in the maintenance?

Keeping your generator properly maintained is imperative for your warranty, and for your peace of mind.

Most people believe that generator maintenance only involves changing the engine oil. While this is important, it is only a small part of the annual maintenance that is required to keep your generator running at peak performance.

Among the parts that need to be checked or replaced annually are:

  • Spark plugs
  • Air filter
  • Valve adjustments
  • Voltage sensors
  • Oil warmers
  • Gas press
  • And many more.

Some of these items require special tools that most homeowners do not own.

Therefore, enlisting the services of a certified Master Service Technician to perform annual maintenance on your generator is highly recommended. Learn more about our Maintenance Plans.

What my customers are saying:

  • We met Darrin Coleman at a Home Show, we were specifically looking for a generator as we live in the country. We talked to another generator salesman and he was able to tell us the actual cost of the generator with installation and then we moved on and found Darrin. Again, we got all the information on the generator and asked Darrin how much it would cost, he told us how much the generator, the pad it would sit on, the additional services of the electrician and a length of copper piping. He said that the total cost would change depending on how much copper piping we would need, so he couldn’t give us a final quote until he came out to the house to look where our generator would go. We chose Darrin as he was much more honest with us than the other gentleman. He services our generator yearly to make sure it is always working well.

  • As emergency workers, we wanted to ensure our home was protected for those occasions when we can’t be home on account of the jobs we hold. We did our research and after meeting Darrin felt confident we were getting a superior product with excellent customer service and a great warranty. There have been several power outages since we had it installed in January 2019, and have been thoroughly impressed with the seamless power it provides and runs our household. It gives us great peace of mind knowing no matter where we are, that our greatest investment—our home—is protected.


    Nancy & Jeff

  • We have been using Darrin for three years to do annual maintenance on our generator that he installed for the previous owner of our house in Manotick. We have been very happy with his responsiveness and the quality of the services provided. The generator, which comes on regularly because of Hydro One outages, has performed perfectly.


    Bruce

  • The total experience with Mountain Generator Services has been first class, from sales and installation to annual service calls. Mr. Coleman provides friendly, efficient service and is a pleasure to deal with.


    Fred C.

  • I had Darrin put in a generator and I have to say the service was amazing. Done in great time, tidy, and lots of information given to me one-on-one. I am so glad to have contacted him and I highly recommend him to anyone interested in this. It makes me feel so much better knowing a power outage is covered. Also, Darrin was very patient with me in explaining the generator. His team of workers were excellent too.


    C. Guy

  • We have bought different items from Darrin and always happy with our service. We are very happy with our generator for our peace of mind and comfort of having our home up and running.


    Marleen & Greg Fawcett

  • Darrin Coleman has been servicing our generator for more than eight years. He has expert knowledge of the generator and can troubleshoot pretty well anything that might arise. Even better, Darrin proactively deals with problems that may be on the horizon. I would far rather deal with emerging issues in September, which is when Darrin services the generator, than have malfunctions in mid-February. Thanks to Darrin staying on top of things, our generator has performed superbly year after year. I would highly recommend Mountain Generator Services to anyone looking to purchase a generator or to service their existing one.


    Del Carrothers

  • Awesome service. Would highly recommend.


    Barbara McElroy

  • I met Darrin in June of 2007. After major blackouts and periodic power outages since moving to Navan in 2002, we decided to look into getting a generator. One of my clients had met Darrin in 2006 and was very pleased with their generator installation and his service, so they referred him to us. Darrin provided a quote and all the professionals required to do an install of a generator in a couple of days. The installation was completed at the end of July in 2007.

    Darrin proposed a Briggs and Stratton Intelligent System for us, as this would automatically switch to the generator in the case of a power outage. Darrin asked us which appliances were the most important so he could select the order of what would restore first to prevent any overload of the system. This system allows you to use your entire home up to the capacity of the generator.

    Darrin provides annual servicing of the generator to keep it running top notch.  We still have the original battery!

    We have had two instances where lighting strikes nearby our home caused damage to various components of the system.  Darrin was able to acquire a control board, which was damaged in July 2012, and the power switch was damaged in a storm in the summer of 2014.  Both issues were resolved promptly and our generator is purring away.

    Power outages continue to occur periodically in the area either due to weather related issues or expansion of the power grid but whenever an outage happens, we don’t worry as we have our generator kick in within 30 seconds.

    If you need a generator when a power outage occurs, Darrin is your man!

  • We purchased a Briggs & Stratton standby generator from Darrin Coleman in 2010. He managed the installation at our home near Burritts Rapids and has provided annual maintenance and occasional service, as needed, since then. We are very satisfied.
