Generator Installation on Long Island

Although Long Island has a utility grid that’s mostly reliable, the occasional power outage can still occur due to things like heavy thunderstorms, ice storms, traffic accidents, or maintenance issues.

To keep your home and family comfortable during long blackouts, consider a whole-home generator for your Long Island home. It can provide the power you need to keep your food safe, your house warm, and medical devices running for hours or even days.

When you need an expert team to install a whole-home generator on Long Island, turn to Universe Home Services. We have served New York residents since 1954. We’re your one-stop shop for all your HVAC, plumbing, and electrical needs, and we offer excellent service that has earned us an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and an Angi Super Service Award.

The Benefits of a Whole-Home Generator

When a power outage occurs, a whole-home generator can provide reliable, hassle-free power for everything in your home, not just critical circuits. Compared to portable generators or standby generators, whole-home generators offer several distinct benefits:

  • Reliable whole-home power: There’s no need to monitor your power usage or shut down devices, as a whole-home generator can power everything in your home.
  • Permanent wiring: A whole-home generator is permanently wired to your home through a transfer switch, so there’s no need to deal with extension cords or power inlets during inclement weather.
  • No refueling: A whole-home generator has a permanent fuel supply on-site, such as a natural gas connection or a large propane tank, eliminating the need to refuel the generator or store fuel cans.
  • Automatic startup: Whole-home generators typically feature an automatic transfer switch, which can sense a power outage, start the generator, and connect your home automatically.
  • Quiet operation: Thanks to a fully enclosed, insulated engine compartment, whole-home generators are far quieter than portable generators, making them a better fit for homes with neighbors nearby.

Generator FAQs

How long will a whole-home generator last?

Depending on how often they’re used and how well they’re maintained, most whole-home generators will last between 25 and 30 years.

How often should my generator be serviced?

A whole-home generator should be inspected and serviced once a year for the greatest performance and longevity.

Can I overload my whole-home generator?

If the generator is sized properly, it should have plenty of power for your entire home. But if the generator does become overloaded, it has circuit breakers that protect it from damage. Reduce the load by turning off a few devices, then reset the breakers to restore power.
