These days, we rely extensively on electrical power to keep our devices charged, access the internet and control the temperature in our homes, especially in extremely hot or cold climates. As a result, it is incredibly frustrating to experience an unexpected power outage, particularly during inclement weather conditions such as heavy rain, wind and sleet. This is why it is important to always be prepared by installing a backup generator, which ensures that you are never without electrical power in your home.
The installation process for a generator can seem complex and difficult, however a licensed electrical contractor will be able to guide you through the entire process and provide answers to all of your questions.

We are experienced in completing multiple types of electrical projects, and will work with you to select a generator that best suits your home’s needs.
Maintaining your generator is an important part of ensuring its longevity. If your generator is well maintained, you can be sure that you are getting the most value for your money, and you can minimize the amount of money spent on replacements and repairs. Typically, the generator manufacturer provides instructions for preventative maintenance, however if you have further questions your electrical contractor may be able to provide more information.

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.
