Generator Installation In Charlotte, NC

In recent years, power outages in North Carolina have affected many homes for a week or longer. While you may rely on candles and flashlights, they are not enough to keep your home safe and well-functioning. You and your family need electricity in your Charlotte home to refrigerate food, charge your mobile devices, and power critical devices like medical equipment and security systems.

Backup generators offer a lasting solution and help keep everything running when the power goes out. The units are installed outdoors like an air conditioner and offer incredible performance advantages compared to a portable unit.

For generator installation in Charlotte and its surrounding areas, including help choosing the right generator for your Queen City home, contact Roby Electric at (704) 334-6447  or contact us online to get started!

Choosing a Backup Generator 

Generators come in various sizes based on how much power they provide. In other words, the number and type of appliances you want to power determine the size of the generator you need — not how big your house is.

One of our Charlotte residential electricians can help you decide which wattage you need from your backup generator. Most people want at least overhead lighting, air conditioning or heating, the refrigerator, and some cooking appliances to remain powered. Other devices you might want a backup generator to charge include:

  • Sump pump
  • Television and cable box
  • Computers, modems, routers
  • Medical equipment
  • Security systems
  • Garage door opener
  • Wine cooler and other specialty appliances

Natural gas, liquid propane, and diesel are all fuel source options for backup generators. Diesel generators offer great fuel efficiency but cost more upfront. Gas and liquid propane generators are still very efficient and are easy to refuel with replacement tanks.

For help choosing a backup generator, contact Roby Electric or call (704) 334-6447  to discuss your electrical needs, fuel options, and budget.

Backup Generator Installation in Charlotte 

For safety and performance, you need a licensed, bonded, and insured electrician to install your new generator. The state of North Carolina also requires an electrical permit to install backup generators, and we can help facilitate the paperwork for you.

When you call Roby Electric for backup generator installation services in Charlotte, we make sure that your generator is safely installed in the best outdoor location. Our electrician will wire the generator to your home’s electrical panel and carefully ensure that the circuits where you need power are connected and ready.

An amateur installation can result in zero power, electroshock, house fires, or costly damage to public utility lines — so work with Charlotte’s trusted electricians at Roby Electric to be prepared the right way!
