Whole House Generator Installation

Helping Cleveland families select and install generators

There are currently many state-of-the-art generators on the market today, all of them requiring an initial investment of thousands of dollars. Because of this, it is important to consult with a Cleveland-area generator professional who can make sure you select the right unit; this decision will have a big impact on your family’s comfort and safety, as well as on your wallet!

What should I look for in a new Cleveland whole-house generator?

There are many factors to consider when selecting a whole-house generator, including:

  • How much electricity your entire household consumes
  • How much the generator costs
  • How long the generator will last
  • How energy efficient the generator is
  • How much noise the generator makes

Don’t try this at home: hiring a profession to install your generator

Once the ideal whole-house generator has been determined to suit your needs, you will need to have it professionally installed. Installing a standby generator is no DIY project; they are dangerous and complicated pieces of equipment that require advanced electrical and plumbing skills. In addition, before you install a whole-home generator, you or your contractor must obtain the correct building code permit. When selecting a Greater Cleveland-based generator installation company, look for one that has a solid reputation, is licensed and insured, and has had extensive experience installing generators of all shapes and sizes. Verne & Ellsworth Hann proudly meets all these criteria and more!

  • They were excellent. When we moved here, my husband was sick and could not be home with all the noise.  We stayed with our son out of town.  They were great.  We’ve used them since then. When we came back everything was in place and clean. They cover everything.
