4 Steps to Home Generator Installation

#1 Choose A Location

  • Midwest Electric & Generator will help you pick the very best location for your generator unit during the FREE Estimate.

The location should meet these guidelines:

  • A stable, well-drained area that will not be susceptible to flooding.
  • Adequate space around the generator unit for service or maintenance.
  • Abide by any homeowners association or community restrictions if applicable.

Space clearances to keep in mind:

  • 18 inches (1.5 feet) from your house structure.
  • 60 inches (5 feet) from any doors, windows, and fresh air intakes.
  • 36 inches (3 feet) in front of the generator unit for room to service or maintain the generator.

**The closer the site is to a natural gas line and the electric meter, the more you will save on installation costs.**

#2 Home Generator Installation

  • Prepare the location where the generator will sit.
    • Depending on your landscape, choose between a gravel base, concrete pad, or an elevated pier system.
  • The entire generator installation usually takes between 4 to 8 hours to complete.

#3 Natural Gas or Propane Fuel And Electrical Connection

  • Midwest Electric & Generator will connect to your existing Natural Gas or Propane Tank.
    • Additional propane tanks can be purchased and buried if desired!
    • Automatic Standby Generators 9kW – 24kW are dual fuel and can easily switch over from one fuel source to another.
  • A transfer switch will be installed next to the main breaker box or outside near the generator unit.
    • This allows for all circuits you want to be supplied with backup power during an outage to transfer over to generator power.
    • In less than 30-seconds, the transfer switch senses where the power is coming from and when to switch over to standby power.

#4 Test The System

  • The Midwest Generator Technician will simulate a power outage to make sure everything works as designed.
  • Your generator technician will program a weekly “self-test” to ensure the unit is in proper running order.
  • For added peace-of-mind, your generator comes equipped with Wifi Remote Monitoring!
    • Receive text and/or email messages on the status of your generator whenever and from wherever you are!
