If you are considering an automatic standby generator system for your home or business, you’ll want VP Electric LLC, a licensed Generac dealer, to provide an on-location assessment to determine which generator is right for you. It’s a lot easier than you think and VP Electric provides this service for free. It will save you a lot of time and a lot of money. VP Electric are experts in helping customers select the right home backup generator system.
To ensure that you get the most from your assessment, follow these tips. First, make sure all decision makers are present. This can be a big purchase and you want everyone involved to know all the facts. Be ready to explain why you want a generator and make a list of the appliances and electrical loads you would like to back up. Think about where you would like to locate the generator. Standby generators must be installed outdoors, 18 inches from your home/business, and must be a safe distance from doors, windows, and fresh air intakes. Keep in mind homeowners associations and local community restrictions when locating your generator. Clear the area around your gas meter or the liquid propane tank, your service panel and the location where the generator will be installed. This makes it easy for the inspector to reach these spots.
VP Electric will assess your electrical needs and will walk around the location with you and discuss which electrical loads you would like to be backed up that fit your budget and the best location for the generator and transfer switch once you’ve identified the loads to be backed up. We will calculate the total load to determine what size generator you’ll need. A system that is too small won’t power all of your appliances and there’s no sense paying for a system that’s bigger than you really need.
