Generator Installation Process
At Generator Systems, LLC, we understand no two installs require the same backup power solution. From the layout of the property, location of the service panel, to the lights and appliances requiring backup power, installing a standby generator system is truly a custom solution. That’s why we’re dedicated to making installation seamless and stress-free for our clients.
To start the generator installation process, Generator Systems salesperson will conduct an on-site visit to determine your home’s or business' specific installation needs and what local permits are needed before starting.
On this visit, we will check your electrical meter, gas lines, and circuit breaker panel location to help explore the best placement option for your generator unit and determine the wiring specifications your home will need.
Finally, we will also discuss which fuel option, natural gas or liquid propane, is available and will work best for your Site's generator system.
Installation Price Estimate
We will recommend the best standby generator and module placement for your needs. Pricing estimates will be based on the standby generator, in addition to:
Required transfer switch and modules
Generator installation cost, which is dependent on home electrical and fuel configuration
Permit costs, labor and other incidental requirements
We will also walk you through any accessories you may want to consider purchasing and available financing options.
Prep & Installation
We will help you finalize the following prior to your installation:
We will obtain necessary permits, which you will legally need to install a standby generator system on your property.
we will finalize installation requirements (concrete slab vs blocks. underground wiring) and order necessary materials.
Generator Systems' salesperson and the client will collaborate on the installation date
