How Long Does Standby Generator Installation Take?

Most standby generator installation companies claim they take a day or two, but in reality, generator installation can take up to 3-4 weeks after your estimate appointment. This is mainly due to planning and zoning approvals through your local and state government due to the importance of the placement of your generator, but don’t worry. We know all the local and state codes you need to adhere to. We’ll also coordinate all the inspection appointments and plan for a team of licensed electricians and pipefitters to make sure the job’s done right. All you have to do is sit back and relax.

  • Free comprehensive estimate.
  • We handle the permitting and inspection appointments.
  • Only the most experienced and vetted team will work on your installation.

Whole House Generator Installation Process

  • After zoning is approved, your whole home generator is delivered, trenching for gas and/or electric is done, as needed.
  • Electrician begins installation by running electric lines and installing the automatic transfer switch.
  • Our plumber or your gas company run the gas lines to your standby generator and performs a pressure test on the connection.
  • Once the initial inspection is completed and approved, the remainder of the electrical and plumbing work is scheduled and completed.
  • A certified Cannondale Generators technician installs the battery, starts the generator for the first time, and performs a test of the circuits on the unit. The technician then explains the various parts of the generator, how and when it operates, and answers any questions the homeowner has.
  • A final inspection with the city or town is scheduled. Once the installation is approved, a certificate of approval is issued, and the installation is complete.
  • The owner enjoys seamless power and comfort throughout the year with annual testing after securing a Scheduled Maintenance Agreement

Made installation of our generator extremely easy. Took care of all permitting with the town and made the process very simple. After a major power outage, they sent their service team in a snowstorm to service the generator and ensure it would keep us going throughout the snowstorm. Excellent service. Very pleased with this company.

Cannondale has been maintaining our 20KW Generac Guardian Series generator (first installed in 2012) for 2 years now. During the recent power outage, the generator ran flawlessly for 130 hours straight. We added 16 ounces of motor oil after the first 75 hours of run time, as would be expected during a period of extended usage. The professionals at Cannondale were reachable, and provided helpful advice on lubricant selection, among other things. If you own a generator and live in Westchester or Fairfield counties, you must become a Cannondale client. They are the absolute best!
