Professional Generator Installation Near Alpine

generator installation in alpineWhy do you need a generator? Well, no one likes to be left in the dark without electricity. Generator installation offers a peace of mind. If a thunderstorm takes out your electricity, an automatic emergency home standby generator will kick in and get you up and running in no time at all.

How does a generator work?

Say a storm, surge, or grid failure took your power out. If you have a generator installed, it will automatically detect the issue and within seconds your power will be restored. It doesn’t matter if you are at home or away, the generator will take care of all the work.

Once the generator senses that your Alpine utility provider has restored power on its end, the generator will switch off and allow power to flow through from your provider.

How is an Alpine generator installed?

The installed process is pretty simple for our team. As a preferred vendor for Generac and Honeywell, we’ve done this many times. Below is any overview of the process.

  1. Location.
    The first step is finding the best location to install the generator. There should be enough room for maintenance. If you can keep it close to a natural gas line, this may help save money.
  2. Installation.
    Once a location has been chosen, a concreate slab or pea gravel will be installed for foundation. The generator will be installed on top of this.
  3. Connection.
    The generator will be connected to the fuel line and a transfer switch.
  4. Testing.
    Finally, simulation tests will be done to make sure the generator switches on in case of an outage.

Signs Your Generator Needs Repairs

Damage to Electrical
In addition to physical damage, you want to make sure there are no signs of damage to the electrical components of the generator. While you’re inspecting the exterior of the generator, pay close attention to the electrical wires, buttons, and connectors. Be sure that the generator is powered off before touching these elements. If you see any frayed wires or missing elements, it’s time for a repair.
