In today’s day and age, access to electricity is one of the many factors that help us maintain a good quality of life. We use electricity for various reasons, such as keeping our food from spoiling, regulating temperature in our homes and keeping connected with friends and family through the internet. Because electricity is so essential to our lives, it can be a huge inconvenience to discover that you’re experiencing a power outage and have lost access to electricity. Power outages can be caused by inclement weather, and thus are extremely unpredictable by nature – which is why it’s best to always be prepared by making sure that you’ve installed a backup generator. A backup generator will provide peace of mind by making sure that your home will always have access to power, even when experiencing a power outage.
Installing a generator may seem like an overwhelming process for most home-owners, which is why it is always a good idea to hire a licensed electrical contractor. A licensed electrical contractor can help you to determine which make and model of generator will best suit your home’s individual needs, while making sure that the generator will be capable of providing sufficient electrical power to support your entire home. Here at Made Electric, our electrical contractors are skilled at providing quick and thorough service, and will guide you through the entire installation process from planning to implementation. We will also work with you to provide preventative maintenance, which will ensure the longevity of your generator and result in less money spent on repairs and replacement.

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.
