Whole Home Generators

Standby Generator Installations, Service & Maintenance in NC

North Carolina is notorious for hurricanes and ice storms. No matter the month, our neck of the woods is always in the cross hairs of fierce weather patterns that wreak havoc on electrical grids. Not a year goes by that one of our neighbors isn’t without power for days or weeks.

That’s why the team here at Comfort First is so excited to introduce a service currently not available in our region, but is long overdue.

Generators aren’t a luxury item anymore. It should be a right that everyone has access to standby power and we want to be the company in NC that makes standby generators affordable to homeowners. 

The average cost to have a whole house generator installed runs between $11,000- $16,000. This includes the costs for the generator itself.

The installation price is affected by the following factors:

  • If the site needs to be prepared and concrete poured.
  • If a fuel tank needs to be installed or a connection established to existing utilities.
  • Any improvements that need to be done to the electrical panel, like adding a transfer switch and new wiring.
  • Materials and equipment as well as any permits.

To determine the size of the generator you need to run your whole house, you need to consider the following factors:

  • What appliances do you want to operate in the event of a power loss?
  • What wattage do they need to run? (Can find this info on their label.)
  • What is the total amount of wattage needed for all of the selected appliances to operate?

It will generally take two full days to have a whole house generator installed. If a concrete foundation is necessary, it will take an extra day or two for the concrete to dry.

Briggs & Stratton Generators


With a Whole Home or Standby Generator, Your Family will Never Have To Worry About a Power Loss Again

Electricity does so much more than keep the lights on. In the summer, power keeps you cool. In the winter, power keeps the heat on and prevents your pipes from bursting.

Without electricity, your house just feels less like your home.

All that changes with a Briggs and Stratton installed and maintained by Comfort First.

We have generators ranging in size and performance output, meaning no matter how small or large your home, we have a generator to meet your needs and budget.


At Comfort First, we pride ourselves on our commitment to the comfort of our customers. That’s why, for every generator we install, we’ll also include an automatic transfer switch.

This automatic transfer switch senses loss of power immediately. It will then turn on your generator, without you having to lift a finger.

Zero loss of power. That’s what we deliver to you.



Here in North Carolina, you never know when you’ll need to rely on your generator. That’s why we provide ongoing service and maintenance for your whole home generator.

We also encourage homeowners to take advantage of our annual maintenance program. Through this program, we’ll automatically schedule a yearly inspection of your generator.

Not only do these inspections help preserve your warranty; but they also prolong the life of your generator and minimize the likelihood of inconvenient system failures.

Chances are you or someone you know has lost power due to one of our famed North Carolina storms. Put that behind you. Learn how a whole home generator by Briggs and Stratton or Honeywell can give you back your peace of mind.
