How does a Whole House Generator Work?

So what exactly is a whole house generator? Simply put, it's a backup power source that can keep your home running during power outages. Unlike portable generators, which can only power a few select appliances, a whole house generator can power your entire home. That means you won't have to worry about losing power to your heating and cooling systems, your refrigerator, your lights, and more.
Installing a whole house generator involves a variety of electrical work, from assessing your home's electrical load to installing a transfer switch to connecting the generator to a fuel source. But don't worry - our expert electricians will take care of everything, from start to finish. We'll work with you to determine the best size and type of generator for your home, and we'll install it safely and efficiently.

The Process of Installing a Whole 
House Generator

Installing a whole house generator typically involves the following electrical work:
Electric Load

Electrical load assessment

The first step in installing a whole house generator is to assess the electrical load of the home to determine the appropriate size of the generator. This involves calculating the total electrical load of all the appliances, lights, and other electrical devices in the home.

Generator selection

Once the electrical load has been assessed, the appropriate size and type of generator can be selected. This will depend on factors such as the size of the home, the number of electrical devices, and the level of power needed during a power outage.
Electrical Panel

Transfer switch installation

A transfer switch is installed to connect the generator to the electrical panel of the home. This switch ensures that power from the generator is not back-fed into the utility lines, which could be dangerous for electrical workers.

The generator is then connected to the transfer switch via electrical wiring. The wiring must be done according to local building codes and safety regulations.

Fuel source connection

The generator is typically fueled by propane, natural gas or diesel. A connection to the fuel source is installed to ensure the generator has a reliable and continuous supply of fuel.

Once the installation is complete, the generator is tested to ensure that it is running properly and can provide power to the home during a power outage.
