Incorrect electrical installation can result damage to the equipment not covered under warranty. There is a right way and wrong way to wire a standby generator system with transfer switch. Passing inspection doesn’t always mean it is installed correctly. We painstakingly follow all national and local codes to ensure you get the best installation possible.
Plumbing install and inspection
As with installation, there is a right way and a wrong way to plumb a standby generator. Even if a job passes inspection, that doesn’t mean it is plumbed correctly for a standby generator. Experience is the best guide to be certain of proper installation. From short black pipe installation’s to long underground gas lines we have the experience to get the job done right.
Gas provider services setup
Standby Generators fueled by natural as natural gas run best with elevated pressure. This sometimes requires an upgraded meter from the natural gas provider. We will determine your gas needs on initial visit and provide documentation and direction to get this done with your gas provider, or sometimes do the gas upgrade ourselves. We are licensed to do this also. If propane is needed we will size your gas needs and assist you to coordinate with our propane supplier for tank size and installation.
