Generator Installation FAQs

Why is a backup generator more beneficial than a portable generator?

A backup (or standby) generator will be ready to kick on should an unprecedented outage occur. It’s also safer from carbon monoxide poisoning than a portable generator, and it’s less expensive in the long run.

Can I install a backup generator by myself?

Generators should always be installed by professional, certified technicians to ensure proper placement and performance.

Do generators require maintenance?

As is the case for all machinery, generators need routine maintenance to ensure there are no faulty parts so that you get the most out of your unit.

    Very happy with Preferred Home Services. They were very professional and courteous during the installations. They were very efficient and took time to explain everything to me before and after, and very prompt with follow-up questions.

    ~ Katie V.

    At 6 PM on a 95-degree day, I noticed that my system was not cooling and was in fact down. I called and was pleased to have someone pick up the phone and listen to the symptoms of the problem. They ultimately dispatched a repair person who was able to get the system up and running by 8:30 PM in advance of a long, hot holiday weekend, I was very pleased with the prompt response to my emergency.

    ~ Bruce H.

    They installed a new unit and replaced all the duct work under my house. They did a great job and were very professional and had the job done in just two days! I will highly recommend this company to anyone needing work.
