Frequently Asked Questions

A whole home generator, also known as a standby generator, can be a valuable investment for several reasons:

  1. Continuous Power Supply: A whole home generator automatically turns on within seconds of a power outage, ensuring that your home has a continuous power supply. This means you can carry on with your daily activities without any interruption.

  2. Safety and Security: During power outages, security systems, lighting, and alarms may be compromised. A whole home generator keeps these systems operational, ensuring the safety and security of your family and property.

  3. Protecting Appliances and Electronics: Power outages can lead to voltage fluctuations and surges when the power is restored, potentially damaging sensitive electronic devices and appliances. A whole home generator provides stable power, protecting your valuable equipment.

  4. Comfort and Convenience: A standby generator allows you to maintain a comfortable living environment during extreme weather conditions or utility failures. You can continue to use heating, cooling, and other essential appliances, ensuring your family’s comfort.

  5. Preserving Food and Medications: Power outages can lead to food spoilage in refrigerators and freezers, and some medications may require refrigeration. A whole home generator prevents food and medicine wastage during extended power outages.

  6. Business Continuity: If you work from home or run a home-based business, a standby generator ensures uninterrupted power, helping you meet deadlines and maintain productivity.

  7. No Manual Intervention: Standby generators are designed to switch on automatically, so you don’t need to be present to start them. They sense power outages and start working on their own, providing a hassle-free solution.

  8. Increased Property Value: Installing a whole home generator can increase the value of your property, making it an attractive feature for potential buyers if you decide to sell your home.

  9. Independence from Utility Companies: A standby generator allows you to be less reliant on utility companies for power supply, giving you greater control over your electricity needs.

  10. Peace of Mind: Knowing that you have a reliable backup power system in place gives you peace of mind during emergencies, natural disasters, or times of uncertainty.

While whole home generators do require an initial investment in terms of purchase and installation, their benefits in terms of convenience, safety, and peace of mind make them a worthwhile investment for many homeowners, particularly those living in areas prone to power outages or extreme weather events.

ATX Generators provides comprehensive turnkey solutions, covering all aspects from design and installation to ongoing maintenance and repair services. Tailored to suit your home’s unique requirements, our packages are flexible and vary depending on the generator model size and specific installation demands. On average, our packages fall within the price range of $9000 to $16000.

Fuel costs for operating a generator can fluctuate depending on the location and the specific model’s consumption. However, on average, running the unit in exercise mode should not exceed $5 per month. In the event of a power outage, when the generator operates at under load, the estimated daily gas usage may amount to approximately $30.

In the scope of a turnkey installation, ATX Generators takes on the responsibility of coordinating with local building authorities to ensure compliance with the applicable building codes in your area.

With our extensive experience, it’s highly probable that we have already executed numerous installations in your vicinity, making us well-versed in the specific requirements. As part of our comprehensive service, we will obtain all the necessary permits on your behalf, providing you with a true turnkey solution.

However, it’s important to note that each Homeowners Association (HOA) may have distinct requirements, and customers are accountable for addressing any HOA-related specifications independently.

Given the intricacies involved in the installation process, as well as the necessity of acquiring permits and ensuring the safe and accurate setup of the whole home generator, we strongly advise against homeowners attempting to install the generators on their own.

However, in situations where you have access to a qualified installer, we do offer the option to purchase our generators without installation. To explore the best-suited solution for your needs, we recommend reaching out to our sales team for a consultation. They will be more than happy to provide you with further information and guidance.

Absolutely! We provide multiple options for remote monitoring of your generator. Opting for a Generac system grants you access to their convenient mobile link notifications, enabling you to receive real-time updates on your generator’s status. For added peace of mind, you can also enroll in our ATX Generators plan, which ensures that we receive instant notifications of any issues, allowing us to promptly attend to any required servicing to keep your system running smoothly and efficiently. Your generator’s operation and maintenance are our top priorities!
