Generators, Scarborough

It can be incredibly debilitating to unexpectedly experience a power outage in your home, especially when facing extreme temperatures in the winter or in the summer. In addition to regulating temperature, most homeowners rely on their home’s electrical supply to charge their devices, keep their food refrigerated and access the internet. Since access to electricity is important in maintaining a good quality of life, it is essential to have continuous electrical supply, even during power outages and blackouts. Loss of electrical supply can be mitigated by installing a backup generator, which will help to make sure that you have an alternate source of energy in the case of a power outage or blackout.

It can seem complex and overwhelming to take on an electrical project by yourself, which is why it’s essential to work with a licensed electrical contractor who can make sure that the work is done without any issues.

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.
