Continue reading below to learn more about the intricacies of automatic standby generator installations and why you should have your generator installed by a professional!

Backup Generator Fuel Types

Most automatic standby generators have two fuel source options: natural gas and liquid propane. The fuel source that your generator will most likely need to run on will depend on whether or not your home or business has a natural gas fuel line that is available to use. If not, or if you prefer to run your generator on liquid propane, your professional generator installation technician can reconfigure the generator’s factory settings so it will be able to run on liquid propane.

Essential Circuits vs. Whole Home Generators

There are two primary types of generator installations that differ depending on the specific needs of your home or business: generators that power some specific circuits that will allow you to run essential appliances, or generators that will power your entire building. Deciding which type of generator you need will help determine what size generator is right for your home or business! Additionally, your generator installation technician will need to know which circuits need to be connected to the generator so they can be automatically powered back on when the grid power goes out.

Knowledge, Licensing, & Experience

Automatic standby generators are highly complex appliances that require immense expertise, training, and licensing in order to properly install. A professional generator installation technician will be able to quickly and efficiently install your generator while keeping it within the terms of your warranty. A professional installer also knows all the current code requirements and makes sure that  gas and electrical permits are pulled and all town required inspections are completed. Here at RCA Electric & Generators, our generator installation & maintenance specialists have the highest credentials and are factory trained in all the Generac equipment they install!
