When you purchase from an online retailer, you will need to know what size generator you will need to power the items you wish to run in your home, while meeting your local building code. Once you determine and buy the correct generator for your needs, your generator will be delivered to your home. You will need to inspect the Generator for any damage at delivery and before you proceed with the installation process. If your generator arrives damaged, you will be responsible for contacting the online retailer and/or freight company to find a resolution. After your generator is delivered, you will need to have your generator placed in a location that meets your local code and have a skilled electrician install your generator. It is imperative that a skilled electrician installs your generator for you and your home’s safety and to ensure proper installation for warranty coverage.
