Whole-Home Generator Installation

Do You Hate When Your Home Loses Power?

 

Losing power, whether it be a Southern California Edison fire blackout, red flag warning blackout, or your areas is susceptible to rolling blackouts, is frustrating. We can install a whole home generator, and you will never lose power again.

 

A whole house generator or a standby generator is better in every way than a portable generator. You don’t need to go outside and hook up your generator or run power cords to appliances. When you have a whole home generator, they are connected to your home’s electrical and provide power automatically in the event of a power outage.

 

One of our licensed electricians can install a whole home generator, so you never lose power again. Some forced outages by electric utility providers last days. When this happens, your refrigerated food goes bad, and conducting everyday tasks get nearly impossible. If you have a tankless water heater on top of no electricity, you will not have any hot water. Don’t let this happen to you!

 

What Size Generator Do You Need?

 

Before you go out and buy a home generator, ensure that the size will run your home. Standby generators come in various sizes, and if you undersize your unit, it can cause system failure and possibly a hazardous condition. Most manufacturers have guidelines on the size of the unit you will need to run your home properly. If you need further help, please feel free to contact us.

What is involved in the Installation?

 

To properly install a whole home generator, a licensed electrician will need to ensure your electrical panel can handle the generator. A transfer switch for the generator will need to be installed. When your electricity is cut off, the transfer switch is activated, and the generator is started. The generator will need a concrete pad as well as hooked up to a fuel source such as natural gas or propane.
