Using reputable generator installation technicians matters. After all, you don’t want anything to happen that could endanger your home or your family. Faulty installations could lead to electrical fires or explosions, or both! Here are some of the reasons why you should have generators installed by technicians you know you can trust.
Safe Installation Equals Safe Generators
Whole house generators are an investment you shouldn’t pass up. That’s because it’s hard to predict when you could have an outage that affects you and your family for weeks. In these times when Covid-19 (the Coronavirus) is a huge concern, losing power is something that you cannot afford. Luckily, safe installation of generators by reputable technicians means that the generators themselves will be safe. permits are necessary, but reputable companies will send technicians out to inspect the machines. They will make sure that all generators meet code regulations and guidelines and that nothing was botched during the installation process just to make a hasty turnaround time happen.
Following Proper Building Codes
Building codes for generators state that the generators must be five feet from point to point, corner to corner, from all windows, vents, and door openings. This design helps prevent anything disastrous happening to your home in case of an emergency. It also helps keep carbon monoxide buildup and excessive heat away, both of which are extremely dangerous. Whole house generators often run on natural gas or propane, and these fuel sources could contribute to the problem. So if the company you have chosen to install your generators doesn’t feel obligated to file the correct permits or get all of the paperwork in order, then that is a red flag. Be sure to contact a team you can trust, such as the professionals here at TriStar Electric!
