These days, access to electricity is essential to maintaining a good quality of life. Electricity is used for a variety of different purposes, such as staying connected to the internet, keeping our homes at a comfortable temperature, and making sure that our food is refrigerated. When an unexpected power outage occurs, it causes a major disruption and can negatively affect your quality of life. Since electricity is so essential to our lives, it is a good idea to always be prepared for a power outage by installing a backup generator. A backup generator is a necessary purchase for many homeowners, as it will ensure that you always have access to electricity when you need it, even during a blackout or power outage.
When completing any type of electrical work, including the purchase and installation of a backup generator, it is recommended to always hire a licensed electrical contractor. The entire process may seem complicated at first, however a licensed electrical contractor can guide you through the entire process from planning through to implementation. Here at Made Electric, we can help answer all your questions, and help you determine the best kind of generator to fit your home’s needs.
We will also work with you to properly care for your generator, and help to minimize the amount spent on repairs and/or replacement. This mainly entails cleaning all parts of the generator and changing the oil/filters, in addition to following the recommended guidelines for preventative maintenance which are provided by the manufacturer. Preventative maintenance will help to ensure the longevity of the appliance and keep it running smoothly for extended periods of time.

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.
