Whole-House Generator Installation, Repair & Replacement

Have your generator installed by the experienced and licensed electrician at ABC Plumbing, Sewer, Heating, Cooling and Electric

In the Chicagoland area, power outages are a common occurrence due to high winds, severe storms, and vehicle accidents. These outages can range from brief interruptions lasting just a few minutes to prolonged blackouts that can stretch for days. During these times, your home may be left without essential amenities such as heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, and even power for critical medical devices that sustain life.

Safeguard your home and loved ones during extended power outages by installing a permanently mounted, user-friendly whole-home generator. When the power grid fails, this generator will automatically activate and supply all the electricity needed to keep your home functioning smoothly. 

This eliminates the inconvenience and potential risks associated with setting up a portable generator, running extension cords, and venturing outside in dangerous weather conditions.

The Benefits of a Whole-Home Generator

A whole-home generator offers several benefits for your home and family, including:

  • Reliable backup power: Your generator will start within seconds of a power outage to provide electricity to your entire home.
  • Automatic startup: There’s no need to start your generator and connect it. An automatic transfer switch safety starts your generator and transfers the loads automatically.
  • Year-round comfort: No matter when your power goes out, a whole-home generator has the capacity to keep your heating or air conditioning system running, as well as your refrigerators, freezers, electric stoves, lights, TV, emergency radios, and more.
  • Improved safety: A standby generator has a permanent fuel supply like municipal natural gas lines, a large propane tank, or a large diesel tank, so there is no dangerous manual refueling during inclement weather. It is also in a safe location outside to virtually eliminate the threat of carbon monoxide positioning that is all too common with portable generators, plus there are no electrical cables to handle.

Signs Your Generator Needs Repairs

  • Problems starting: A weak battery, fuel delivery problems, a faulty ignition system, or a bad starter could prevent your generator from starting properly.
  • Bogging under load: A restricted fuel system, dirty air filter, weak spark, or a worn engine could cause the engine to slow down under load.
  • Stalling: Low oil levels, bad fuel, overloading, and a faulty ignition system could all cause the engine to stall and shut the generator down.
  • No power output: A lack of power could indicate wiring issues, tripped breakers, a faulty transfer switch, or problems with the generator’s power head or alternator.

Whole-Home Generator Replacement

Like any equipment with an engine, a whole-home generator will eventually need to be replaced as the engine loses performance and efficiency over time. As the end of your generator’s service life approaches, you may notice more frequent breakdowns, engine problems, trouble running large loads, less stable power, or issues with sensitive electronics.

A generator replacement will ensure you have the reliable backup power you need during an emergency without worrying about breakdowns, loss of power, or safety issues. When it is time to replace your whole-home generator, talk to our team at ABC. We can recommend the best model for your needs and provide complete installation.

Frequently Asked Whole-Home Generator Questions

  • The output capacity of standby generators is rated in kilowatts. To estimate the generator size you need, add the wattage of all the devices you plan to use during a power outage. The wattage is often listed on the device itself; if not, the amperage will be. To calculate wattage, multiply the amperage by the circuit’s voltage, typically 120 volts. Choose a generator with at least 50% more power than you need to run efficiently and provide extra power for starting large motors like HVAC blowers. For help evaluating your electrical needs, talk to our team at ABC.

  • To keep your generator running smoothly, it needs to be completely serviced at least once a year. This includes basic maintenance tasks like replacing the air filter, changing the oil, testing the battery, and inspecting the electrical connections. After several years of use, a full tune-up should be completed, the valves will need to be adjusted, and the fuel system will need to be serviced. For expert generator maintenance in the Chicago area, choose the team at ABC.
