Generator Installation and Replacement in Winston Salem NC

What happens when you lose power?

Sure, it’s no big deal if you’re without the TV and a hairdryer for a few hours (or days). Depending on the weather, you could even stay with friends and family until your power is finally up and running again. However, what are you going to do about items like your refrigerator, electronic devices, terrariums or aquariums, and personal medical equipment when the power goes out?

Without a home generator to back you up in the event of a power outage, you risk losing:

  • Perishable foods in your refrigerator and freezer
  • Pets like fish, reptiles, and other animals who rely on items like water and air filters or heat lamps.
  • Access to personal medical devices like CPAP machines or oxygen therapy equipment.

By investing in a Generac backup generator for your home, you can rest easy knowing that if you lose your main source of power for any reason, Generac has you covered.

How long does the generator installation take?

Typically everything from the initial consult to your final inspections can take several weeks to complete. You’ll want to plan ahead for three to four onsite visits from your technician over the course of two to three weeks. If you don’t currently have gas service to your home you will have to set that up with the local Natural or LP gas company, which can also take a couple of weeks. Keep in mind, your final time frame will depend on your unique situation and factors such as:

  • Required code inspections
  • Gas company installation (if gas is a new service)
  • Location of generator placement relative to electric and gas service.

Swaim Electric Heating and Air Conditioning is a Generac Certified Service Company, meaning we don’t just install your unit and leave you with the task of finding another company to complete the service and maintenance. We can also install a gas line to the generator from your natural or LP service connection. We see you through the generator installation process from start to finish.

Installed a generator for us. Did a fabulous job. People were extremely knowledgeable and professional. They install dozens per week so they are VERY prepared. Wonderful follow-up. Best communication I’ve ever had with any company. You are totally informed on what will happen when. One of the best priced too.

Craig arrived first to install my new Generac home generator. He started wiring my new transfer switch inside, working quickly and constantly, doing everything neatly. Jacob arrived later and started working on the generator placement outside. They both ran the heavy wiring from the transfer switch, through the outside wall, and to the generator. Everything was done very neatly. They never stopped for any kind of break. They never had to ask each other what was needed next. They just knew. When they finished the installation later that afternoon, they cleaned up thoroughly. I, the home owner, watched pretty constantly everything and was extremely impressed with the whole project. Both men were so pleasant, well mannered, and polite. Sure wish all work could be done like they did it! They get 5 stars from me! THANKS!

Generec maintenance- Shawn did the best maintenance (10 out of 10) He carefully cleaned and waxed inside and out, didn’t spill oil and wiped areas that others would have missed. He was knowledgeable, polite, and answered all questions. I have requested him for all maintenance in the future.Don’t let competition lure him away.Tammy is wonderful to speak with on the phone. She is polite , easy to work with and very knowledgeable about company polices. She also deserves a10.I was disappointed that the company did not know NC policy that the generator had to be > 10 feet from a propane tank that I had. I had to have it removed and will now have to install natural gas logs. This has caused me to be disappointed with the company but not the employees I have dealt with.Joseph R.Hedgpeth
