Whole Home Generator Installation
Even on a stable power grid, you should plan for power outages when living in the northeast. Our unpredictable weather means outages are common and can last anywhere from a few hours to days.
Standby generators engage as soon as an outage occurs and will automatically shut off when power is restored. That’s why many families are turning to whole-home standby generators as an alternative to small battery backups and portable solutions.
Whether you’re just researching your options or looking for service on an existing generator, the generator experts at Quail Services are here to help.

Do You Need a Whole Home Generator?
Depending on the size of your home, portable generators and battery backups will only get you so far. This is especially true if you live in a remote area where storms could leave you without power for extended periods of time. Another consideration is for family members who may be oxygen-dependent, or who need access to constant electricity for their comfort and wellbeing. If you check any of these boxes, a whole-home standby generator can be a lifesaver for you and your family’s comfort.
The biggest benefit of a whole-home standby generator is that it can be powered by an existing natural gas line to your home, or through propane tanks buried in the ground. Portable generators require you to store bulky equipment and brave the elements outside to refill throughout the day when needed. With a near-constant self-supplied fuel source, a whole-home standby generator can power your entire home without moving a muscle.
When Does a Whole Home Generator Need Maintenance?
You may think that since your generator only runs when there is an outage that routine maintenance is rarely needed. This isn’t the case. In fact, your generator runs through test cycles periodically throughout the year to ensure it’s operating effectively. Just like all emergency equipment, they should be checked annually for wear and tear and have common failing components replaced before a problem occurs. Routine maintenance also helps to maintain your manufacturer’s warranty.
