Frequently Asked Questions

Like any investment you will have some questions to ask. We have collected our most asked questions about whole home generators for you right here in our FAQ. If you can’t find the information you are looking for we encourage you to contact us to go over your options.

What types of home generators are available?

Customers can select standby generators to power an entire residence, and when the power goes out, the generator will kick on within 10 seconds.

They would have to manually start the generator, plug it into the inlet outlet, turn it on, and select the circuits they deem important to run.

What size generator do I need for my home?

Generators come in variable sizes, and it depends on the power draw that their home takes. Many factors like gas or electric appliances will make a big difference on the generator size.

Permits should always be utilized for a generator install, and coordination with the local utility company.
