    4 Steps to Install a Generator in Orlando or Central Florida

    Step 1: Choose a Location

    A home consultation with one of our technicians will help you pick a location for the generator. Your generator should be installed in a safe, dry area that is well-ventilated and away from any windows or doors to prevent exhaust fumes from entering the home. It should also be easily accessible for maintenance.

    Step 2: Installation

    Prepare your generator installation site with a sturdy concrete slab or pea gravel to ensure a stable and safe base.

    Step 3: Connecting Fuel and Electrical

    Your generator connects to both fuel and electrical systems to efficiently generate and distribute power during an outage Once the fuel line is connected and the transfer switch is installed next to the main breaker box, your generator will automatically sense power outages and switch over to provide uninterrupted power.
    Step 4: Outage Simulation

    After installing your generator, a technician conducts an outage simulation to ensure everything operates smoothly and reliably.

    Don't Be Left Powerless. Prepare Now.

    You will need to estimate your power needs by reading the label on each appliance you want to power. Each label will tell you how many watts are needed to power that appliance. Add all the watts from each item you want to power. Once you had the total wattages, multiply that by 1.5. That will let you know what size you need. For more information, read our latest article “A Guide to Choosing a Generator For your Home

    A 10000 watt generator will power not only basic essentials, but also larger loads such as a central air conditioning unit. However, if you are wanting to power multiple appliances like coffee makers, toasters and more to addition to the essentials and larger loads, you may want a higher watt generator. A 20,000 watt generator will cover pretty much everything in your home.

    Portable generators are good if you just want to power the essentials such as your refrigerator. These are gas powered and are plugged into your appliances. Standby/Automatic power generators are a good option if you want to power everything in your home. These are powered by natural gas or propane and will automatically turn on. For a detailed comparison, read our latest article “A Guide to Choosing a Generator For your Home”.

    How long a generator last depends on a lot of things such as maintenance, fuel quality and usage. Diesel Generators can last up to 30,000 hours. Portable generators lifespan is usually around 3,000 hours.

    If the generator uses natural gas then it would only last till the line of gas ends. If the generator uses diesel or propane, it depends on the tank size. A fuel tank that is a gallon or two in size will last around eight to ten hours. A 500 gallon tank should be able to last about a week.

    The number one brand for generators is Generac. Generac produces all types of generators, as well as transfer switches. They provide 24/7 customer support to all customers and are committed to sustainability. Here at Palmer Electric, we install Generac generators.

    great experience with Palmer Electric

    I had a great experience with Palmer Electric. The technician they sent out was very honest and gave me a fair price on what I needed. I had to call them another time to change out my panel and they were very professional, quick, and I was happy with the price. I would recommend using them.

    They are very professional.
