Having access to electrical supply is very important for many reasons – we use electricity for a variety of things, such as keeping our food refrigerated, charging our cell phones and computers, and connecting to the internet. We also use electricity to regulate temperature in our homes, especially when the weather is extremely cold or extremely hot. For these reasons, it can be frustrating when the power goes out unexpectedly, and you are left without any access to electricity. Fortunately, as a homeowner you can be prepared for any power outage by installing a backup generator, which will ensure that you always have access to your electrical supply even during a blackout.
Generators come in many different makes, models, shapes and sizes, and it can be difficult as a homeowner to know which one you need for your home. A licensed electrical contractor can help you to decide which type of generator will best fit your home, and answer any questions you may have regarding the installation process. Here at Made Electric, our team of licensed electricians are skilled and knowledgeable about generators, and we are happy to guide you through the installation process from planning to implementation. We will also help you to understand the maintenance required to ensure that your generator lasts for a long time without needing repairs or 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.
