Generators, North York

It can be incredibly frustrating waking up to find out that your home has no electricity due to a power outage, and you aren’t able to charge any of your devices, do your laundry, or access the internet. Power outages are especially inconvenient during the winter when you need to heat your home, or during the summer when you need to turn on the AC. It is also important to have electricity, so that your fridge/freezer can keep your food from spoiling.

Power outages are unpredictable, and can be caused by freezing rain, sleet storms and/or high winds. Even though it’s impossible to know when a power outage will occur, it is possible to be prepared by installing a backup generator. Having a backup generator ensures that you will never experience a disruption in electrical supply, and will always have access to essential appliances within your home.

When it comes to installing a generator, it can be difficult to know where to begin. That is why it is essential to work with a licensed electrical contractor who can take care of every step in the installation process, from planning to implementation. Here at Made Electric, our electricians are quick and diligent, making sure that every project is done correctly.

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.
