Never Lose Power Again
Whole Home Generator Installation
Installing a whole home generator is not as easy as buying a generator at a hardware store and putting it outside. There are three considerations to take into account.
- Fuel. Generators need to have a power source. In homes that are stubbed for natural gas, that is the preferred method of power generation. Clean burning and readily available, natural gas generators are reliable and long lasting. In homes that do not have natural gas, propane is a great alternative fuel source. Large tanks are placed alongside the generator and periodically filled by propane delivery services.
- Generator Size. The size of generator you need will depend on the size of the house you have. A larger home with more inhabitants will require a larger generator to create the amount of power you need.
- Getting Power to the House. Once the generator is set, how do you get power to the house? It takes an experienced electrician to install a generator that can power the main breaker box of your home. Older homes may even need to have a new breaker box installed before a generator can be added.
