Generator Installation Ratings & Reviews

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I run my generator all the time to help ease my electrical bill?
A:
No. Your generator should be used as a temporary power source during times of emergency. It is best used to keep essential appliances running when your main source of power is unavailable.


Q: What powers my generator?
A:
You may choose either gas or propane as a fuel source. If you already have a gas connection, we will contact your gas company for the connection. A separate service may be required for propane.


Q: Do generators make much noise?
A:
If you require quiet, inquire about a larger, liquid-cooled model. While air-cooled models are smaller, they tend to operate more loudly than liquid-cooled generators.


Q: How long does it take for my emergency generator to start?
A:
Backup generators are installed to provide seamless power in the event of an outage.
