Installing A System

Installing A System

You’ve decided you’ve had enough!

Severe weather, unreliable power grids and an uncertain world have left your home and family vulnerable for the last time. We are here to guide you!

The prying question – how much will this generator project cost me?

How much will it cost

There are a lot of factors that can contribute to the cost of your generator installation, such as: what brand and size generator you choose, how your home is wired, where you want to place the generator, and if you already have gas available at your home. Typically, a turn-key residential generator installation ranges from $5,000 – $15,000.

There are choices you can make to keep costs down, so a great place to start is to sit down with your family and determine a budget for your generator installation. This can help us realistically recommend the best solution for your home and budget. 

What size do I need

As you go through the process of getting a generator, one of the steps you will face is figuring out what size generator you need. The best way to determine generator size is to have a generator specialist visit your home to discuss your needs. However, there are things you can do on your own to get a pretty good idea of what size generator you may need.  To learn more, download our e-book on sizing your generator.

What does Installation Involve

Unlike portable generators, automatic standby generator installations are not a plug-and-play solution. 

Because the system is permanently wired into your home, there are a lot of details involved in an installation.  Although the installation itself usually takes 1-3 days, the entire process can take a couple of weeks.  Don’t worry – we will help you through all the details when we visit you at your home for a site evaluation, will take care of the permitting and site work and orient you to the machine once it is completely installed and the gas has been connected.  For an overview of what to expect during an installation, watch our Tech Talk on the Installation Process
