Generator Installation in Alexandria

Get the Backup Protection Your Home Needs During a Power Outage

In this day and age, we rely on our electricity for so much, and we often take it for granted. You might not realize how much you really need access to energy until you no longer have it, and chances are high that you will lose access at some point. In fact, the U.S. experiences 3000 power outages every year, affecting at least 41 million people. Natural disasters and other common causes of power outages, like human error and overload, are usually out of your control. This does not mean you are hopeless in the face of a power outage.

The average power outage lasts just over three hours, so it is important to be prepared. Home generators are extremely useful tools that can keep your electricity running even if your power lines are down. A home generator will keep your freezer and refrigerator running to keep your perishable foods intact. It can also keep your water hot and landlines operating during a power outage. If you are dealing with a natural disaster, you are likely dealing with enough worries, and installing a home generator for you is one way we can take away some of that burden.

Get the Professional and Efficient Generator Installation You Need

When it comes to home generators, it is important to consult with a professional technician. For one, working with professionals like the team at Atlas Home Service will help ensure that you choose the right generator for your home. We will need to match the size of the generator with the needs of your home. We will also need to consider whether the generator is air-cooled or liquid-cooled and whether you need an aluminum or steel enclosure. These are the types of decisions it will be difficult for the average person to make, but our team will walk you through every step of the process with ease.

During the installation, we will also lay out a gas line that connects the gas meter to the generator. This is another step that can be dangerous for the average person to handle because it can spring a gas leak, but our team will prevent dangers like this from occurring. We will also need to install an electrical sub-panel and transfer the electricity from the main panel to the sub-panel.

Hiring a professional for this will prevent you from dangerous risks like electrocution. The cost of installation will vary from home to home based on the individual setup and the steps needed to complete the project.

Most generator installations will take a day or two and involves the following steps:

  • Installing the transfer switch
  • Moving the generator in place
  • Setting up the electricity
  • Forming the proper connections from the fuel source to the generator

Once your generator is installed, you will be ready to protect your home in case you need an alternate source of energy.

Alexandria Generator Replacement & Relocation Services

Residential Standby Generators are certainly a great investment, but like all appliances, they are not designed to last forever. An average standby generator is designed to last for 10,000 to 30,000 hours of use. For most people, this adds up to about fifteen years of use, but the actual length of time will vary depending on how often you use it, and how well it's maintained.

The good news is that a generator replacement is often simpler than a new installation because your current system will give us a head start on the specific power needs of your home.

To keep your generator in good condition, you will need to have maintenance performed every year or after every 150-200 hours of use. In fact, proof of annual maintenance is required for your manufacturer's warranty to remain in effect. Standby Generators can perform weekly or biweekly auto-tests. These tests give you the assurance that your generator is working and can alert you to any issues so you can schedule repairs or maintenance before an emergency strikes.

Even if you follow all of the best generator maintenance tips, every generator will need to be replaced eventually. If you are looking to replace your standby generator, contact us to schedule a free, no-obligation, in-home quote. Our trained and friendly Project Managers can give you multiple options that fit your needs.

Relocation Services

Are you moving to a new home and need to take your standby generator with you? 

We offer relocation services as long as the new home is within our service area. One of our Project Managers can quote you for uninstalling your generator from its current location and reinstalling it to a new location. The process is similar to a new installation as there are many variables your new home must meet for the generator to call its new location home.
