4 steps for home generator installation

STEP 1: Choose a location

  • An in-home consultation will help you pick a location for the generator

The location should meet these Guidelines:

  • A stable, well-drained area that will not flood
  • The room around the generator for the technician and maintenance personnel
  • Keep in mind homeowners association and community restrictions when choosing a site.

Approximate Clearances to keep in mind:

  • 45 cm from the house
  • 1.5 m from doors, windows, and fresh air intakes
  • 1m in front of the generator for servicing room

The closer the site is to a natural gas line and the electric meter, the more you can save on installation costs for your home 50 Hz Home backup generator.

STEP 2: Installation

  • Prepare the site with a concrete slab or pea gravel
  • Place generator on the concrete slab/ gravel

STEP 3: Connecting fuel and electrical

  • Fuel line is connected
  • Transfer switch installed next to the main breaker box
  • The transfer switch senses where the power is coming from and when to switch over to generator power

STEP 4: Outage simulation

  • Technician checks that everything works as it should
  • Set up weekly self-test to ensure everything continues to function as normal
