BEST WHOLE HOME GENERATORS OF 2022

In times of severe weather or unexpected power outages, a whole home generator can be a lifesaver. These events can be unpredictable, leaving your home without power in the middle of the night or during a freezing winter storm. It can be frantic trying to find out the portable generator and set it up, and even when you find it it may not have fuel in it or could have damage as it hasn't been maintained in a while. A home generator alleviates these inconveniences for homeowners. There is no need to run around the house searching for extension cords or gas for power with a home generator. Home generators make it easy to get power in emergency situations.

FAQs

How do I correctly size a generator for my home?

When determining what size generator you will need, it is important to imagine your home without power. Some power outages are short and only last a few hours, while some could last for days or weeks. It is important to think about your day to day life and what is your family going to need to have access to during a power outage. There are smaller generator products available to cover just the essential circuits in your home. There are also larger systems that can cover virtually all of your home. Most generators have a transfer switch that contains a pre-determined number of circuits based on your generator’s power rating. Each circuit directly matches a circuit on your circuit breaker panel. This will provide direct electricity to your pre-determined circuits. Larger units that provide power to the whole house will ensure that no circuit is left un-powered, so all appliances and electricity in your house should be available every minute of the power outage.

Can I install a generator myself?

It is not recommended to install a generator by yourself.  While some generator systems may come prepackaged and pre-wired with thorough installation instructions, it is still recommended that a generator specialist or licensed contractor installs your unit. There are state, local, and national electrical codes that generators, especially non pre-wired or larger systems, need to follow. Working with a generator specialist or contractor is the best way to ensure that you are following those codes. Also, because generators are electrical systems, it is much safer to have an experienced professional handle the installation.

Where can I buy a generator?

Generators can be purchased from most home improvement retailers, or through any local generator specialist. It is recommended to purchase your generator through a generator specialist, as they can provide expertise in the generator selection in addition to installation.

Can I fix an error code myself?

Most error codes cannot be diagnosed and fixed on your own. If you are not able to determine what is causing your error code, you do not know how to fix it, or your efforts to fix the error code have been unsuccessful, call in a generator repair technician. Your technician will have knowledge of your generator and the error codes and will be able to diagnose and repair any potential issues.

How often should I schedule generator maintenance?

It is recommended that you have your generator unit serviced approximately every six months or for every 100 hours of generator operation. This maintenance will help prolong the life of your generator and make sure that any issues with the generator are resolved before a power outage exposes the problem.

A & J Generator & Equipment helped us out last year during the storm and urgently fixed the issue with our generator. Sandra is simply AWESOME!!! She is super responsive, vey nice and professional and got someone out to immediately to fix our issue. She is a pleasure to work with and made the process easy for us. We also worked with the company (Tony and his team) to move our generator this year. They did a terrific and clean job. I will be referring them to my friends and family. Thank you Sandra and Tony! It is a pleasure working with you.

With all the crazy weather we’ve been experiencing, especially Connecticut of all places receiving hurricane strength wind, it was time to get prepared. My family and I purchased a generator from A&J last week. Tony and his team came, installed the generator, made sure it was functioning properly, squared up with us and then left. Everyone was extremely professional and friendly, made for a very easy experience. Now I won’t be sitting in the dark next storm. Thanks guys! Great work!
