Standby Generator Installation, Repair & Maintenance

We install standby generators from Briggs & Stratton, and we can recommend the best model for your needs. With more than 50 years of experience, our team is dedicated to your comfort.

Benefits of Installing a Whole-Home Generator


Compared to portable generators, standby generators offer homeowners several important benefits, including:

  • Automatic operation: Whole-home generators use an automatic transfer switch that senses when the power is out, starts the generator, and transfers the electrical load in a matter of seconds, ensuring as little disruption as possible.
  • Power for your entire home: A whole-home generator can power everything from your HVAC systems and refrigerator to stoves, medical devices, emergency radios, and internet devices.
  • Safe, secure wiring: Whole-home generators are permanently wired into your home, with no need for extension cords like portable generators.
  • Permanent fuel supply: There’s no need to refuel during outages. Your whole-home generator can power your home for extended periods.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost to install a standby generator will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • The size of the generator
  • 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, equipment, and permits

To determine the size of the generator you need to run your home, you need to consider:

  • What appliances do you want to operate in the event of a power loss?
  • What wattage do they need to run?
  • 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.
