Where Should I Put My Generator?




Where Should I Put My Generator?

Posted on:18 Feb, 2023 / Posted In: Generac

A home standby generator is part of your emergency plan as a homeowner, so it should not be installed in a place that could cause its own emergency. Placement of your generator needs to be in a stable area outdoors that will allow for proper ventilation and room to operate safely.

Here are some things to keep in mind when for your home generator’s placement:

Location, location: Your standby generator is best placed near an existing electrical source if at all possible. If you do not have this type of access, our team at Generator Technologies does offer electrical services, such as updating or adding systems to accommodate your home’s new electrical needs. There may be requirements based on your utility company, that you should check into before installation. 

Keep it clear: Your generator should stand away from windows, should not be installed in any type of structure and should not be under a roof. You want to allow for proper ventilation as well as be mindful of it being too close to areas where the sound could be distracting. You do not want greenery, trees or shrubs to surround your standby home generator either.

What lies beneath: You want to have a stable and level surface underneath your generator as a strong foundation. A pad is a good base, but you want what is under the pad to also be sturdy and level – whether this is pea gravel, concrete or compacted sand with a frame.

Our team at GenTec is available for installation and maintenance, even if you purchased your unit from a store. Our installation services are available to anyone.
