Waking up in the morning to find that you’re experiencing a power outage can be frustrating, especially when facing extreme temperatures in the summer or winter. Most people rely on their home’s electrical supply to control the temperature with AC or heating, charge their cell phones and access the internet. Electrical power supply is integral for food safety as well, by making sure that your items stay refrigerated if needed. Though power outages are a result of many unpredictable factors outside of our control such as strong winds and heavy rain, it is still possible to be prepared for an outage by installing a backup generator. This way, you can ensure that you will never experience a disruption in electrical supply, and will always have power when you need it.
Installing a generator can be a complex project, which is why it’s essential to work with a licensed electrical contractor who can make sure that the work is done correctly. Here at Made Electric, our electricians have experience completing a variety of electrical work, and can help you to determine what type of equipment best suits your home’s individual needs. We are skilled at providing quick and efficient service to ensure that the installation process is completed without any issues, and will answer all of your questions so that you know everything that you need to know about your new generator.
One of the most important parts of owning a generator is ensuring that all required preventative maintenance is completed in a timely manner. This will ensure that your generator lasts for a long time, and minimizes the costs spent to replace or repair the generator. Though your electrical contractor can provide advice on how to make sure your generator is well maintained, it is also imperative to also follow the maintenance instructions provided by the manufacturer.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Will I need a permit to install a generator?
According to Ontario’s Electrical Safety Authority, you must take out an electrical permit to permanently connect a generator to your home’s electrical system. ESA strongly recommends hiring a Licensed Electrical Contractor (LEC) to ensure your generator is installed correctly.
Where should the generator be installed?
Usually, generators are installed in the backyard, but our electricians will discuss the installation process in depth with you and assist in determining which location best suits your home’s needs.
Can I install a generator myself?
In order to ensure adherence to all electrical codes and regulations, it is recommended that you hire a licensed electrical contractor to complete the installation process. Though manufacturers may offer prepackaged and prewired systems with complete installation guides, trying to install a generator in your home by yourself may pose a safety hazard due to incorrect installation.
