Common Questions About Whole House Generator Installation

What size of generator do I need for my home or small business?

The size of your whole house generator will depend on how much will need to be powered up in the event that your electricity goes out. Size, as it refers to generators, references the electrical capacity, rather than its physical size. Since every residence and small business is different, our experts will help you determine the right size generator for your needs.

For example, if you are a business with a lot of refrigeration needs, your generator will be larger than a private home of the same size.

Does a whole house generator require maintenance?

Just like other equipment, generators should receive annual maintenance to ensure it will work when you need it and prevent future breakdowns. With proper maintenance and care, a quality generator can last upwards of 20 years. As a homeowner, it’s a good idea to do a test run of the generator on a monthly basis to avoid any surprises.

What is the difference between a standby generator and a whole house generator?

Standby generators are fine for powering smaller homes with a kilowatt range between 9kW to 20kW. Since they have smaller engines, they provide short-term power for specific appliances. They are not suited to power everything at once, back up a larger spaces or to run for an extended period of time.

A whole house generator, on the other hand, can range in capacity from 22kW to 48kW. Featuring larger, more powerful engines, it is better suited for larger spaces and longer run times. Installing a whole house generator powers your whole home, to bring you peace-of-mind in a stressful situation. Your property will be as close to fully functional during a power outage.

Does a whole house generator installation require a permit?

During your on-site visit, our experts will determine the specific needs of your home or small business, as well as any local permits that may be required before starting the installation project.
