Having a Standby Generator Installed
Exactly What You Need to Know Before Purchasing a Standby Generator.
We all know how inconvenient it is when the electricity goes out in the Evansville and Newburgh areas. Here is what to expect if you’re considering having a standby generator installed.
What factors should I consider while deciding whether or not to purchase a standby generator?
If you’re worried about losing your belongings if the power goes out, consider standby power. We’ve heard about awful losses people have suffered. After their pipes froze during a winter outage, one family reported, water dripping down from the second story to the basement. Before something like this happens to you, it’s essential to have a standby generator installed.
How much should I expect to spend for a standby generator?
A standby generator, like a central air conditioning unit, is permanently located outside your home. It’s not a disposable or temporary gadget; it’s a long-term investment that can safeguard your family and house in the event of a power loss. The cost of the equipment is determined by the amount of backup power you require. The cost of installation varies depending on your circumstances. The overall cost of a generator, transfer switch, and installation by one of our trained team members might range from $5,000 to $10,000.
What generator size do I require?
Consider how many things you’d like to keep running in the event of a power loss. Sizing varies depending on whether you want to back up vital power needs (such as your sump pump, refrigerator, basic lighting, and garage door) or your complete home so that it can work as if there was no power outage. Our experienced team members have answers for both instances. Give us a call today! 812-858-4000
What exactly does the installation entail?
First, we will conduct a site survey, and explore generator installation scenarios with you that are compliant with local laws and ordinances. You should choose a location that is close to your home’s gas and electric supplies. The location where your generator will be installed will then be leveled. Prior to installation, crushed gravel and a pre-fabbed concrete pad or a concrete slab are frequently poured. Finally, your generator’s automated transfer switch will be installed and connected.
Is there a standby generator you recommend?
BNG recommends Kohler. Kohler generators are made in the USA in Kohler, Wisconsin. Kohler offers a 5-Year warranty, more reliability, better power quality, less interruption in power, and more maximum power than other brands. We aren’t the only ones that trust Kohler either! NOAA/National Weather Service stations are backed up by residential models of Kohler generators. Industrial Kohler models are used to back up the nation’s airports.
