If you’re moving into a new house, or looking to replace the generator for your home, then you need professional guidance and installation. You may be wondering if it’s ok to “do-it-yourself,” but when it comes to generator installation, the task is best left to professionals who are experienced in the specific equipment being installed and familiar with all the regulations involved.
The consequences of DIY whole house generator hookup might not only involve potentially damaging your home or starting a fire, they could also come with legal consequences.
Whole House Generator Hookup Risks
Let’s explore the potential risks of a DIY whole house generator installation. Unlike a simple task like changing your water filter or updating your lightbulbs, installing a generator involves a lot of parts. Natural gas, plumbing, and electrical wiring – all are involved! Therefore, if you make a mistake, it might not be as minor as a lack of power. Instead, faulty wiring becomes a fire hazard. A plumbing mistake could lead to water damage. You could cause a gas leak! This is why a whole house generator hookup comes with a myriad of state, local, and possibly HOA regulations. Don’t risk breaking the law!
