Generator installation in Cleveland

Generator installation: Avoid a costly electrical disaster

You can easily avoid the darkness and uneasiness caused during Cleveland’s power outrages with a generator installation. However, there are a number of factors to be kept in mind while considering a generator install. It is important that you make an estimate of generator wattage based on the wattage requirements of your home’s appliances and fixtures. Decide on the model based on your needs and convenience. Portable models which typically run on gasoline, can be moved around, but may not provide enough back-up for heavy duty drains like centralized air-conditioning. On the other hand, permanent models are larger in size, offer more wattage and are generally installed outside homes.

Generator installation: Leave it to the experts

Generator installation must be only done by an experienced certified electrician as opposed to factory authorized technician. If not installed with proper electrical safeguards and accurate sizing, the generator can cause havoc to your electrical equipments and motors. Only experts will be aware of power company regulations, the standard clearances as well as power transfer system (from the generator to your house).

Things to keep on mind

It is important not to connect generators directly to the wiring system of your home. Stable ground protected from flooding and high winds are important considerations while deciding the location. The location must be easily accessible for periodic servicing. Also make sure the generator is not placed in an enclosed area as they produce high levels of carbon monoxide. During a generator installation, it is essential that all electrical components meet the requirements of electrical codes.
