Having a home standby generator is important during the winter months – when ice and snow storms frequently strike and cause power outages. And Lakepointe Electric offers a full selection of Briggs and Stratton home standby generators – as well as professional installation. However, as a homeowner or renter looking to save money, should you consider DIY generator installation?

Why Michigan Renters and Home Owners Choose DIY Generator Installation

As a busy individual who is trying to save time and money, the DIY generator installation may seem to make sense. After all, you can drive out to your local big-box home supply store, pick out your generator, and install it right away. There is no waiting and no extra cost associated with the generator purchase.

Yet, as tempting as this scenario sounds, there are a few reasons why you may want to opt for professional installation instead – especially when Lakepointe Electric offers affordable, fast, and efficient generator installation.

Why Michigan Renters and Home Owners Choose Professional Generator Installation

For the most part, home standby generators are perfectly safe for home use. However, as with most items in the home related to electricity, there are certain risks associated with generators. Of course, it is highly likely that most individuals could successfully install their generators with little risk. Yet, there is that slim chance that a person may incur bodily harm with amateur generator installation. So, ultimately, it is always better to seek professional assistance if you have any doubts.

Next, to get the most out of your new home standby generator, correct installation is imperative. Otherwise, it is difficult to know if user error will cause future unreliability or inefficiency. Yet, if you trust a generator professional from Lakepointe Electric, you will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that an expert in the field (and a representative of a Briggs and Stratton Diamond Dealer) installed your generator under the guidelines recommended by the manufacturer.
