Generator Installation FAQ's
1How long does it take to install a generator?
This ranges on a case by case basis but we typically see 3-4 days overall.
2Do I have to push a button to turn on the generator when I loose power?
Standby generators have automatic transfer switches that monitor the feed from the utility company and when your home loses power it will automatically turn on. When it gets power back from the grid it will automatically turn off.
3Can I choose what day and time it will self test every week?
Yes, ask the technician when he is programming it.
