Me an my wife really talked about this and living in a Hurricane zone and with the recent power outages that surrounded us, we have decided we are going to do it. I am going to have a blast when the power is out for a day or two here and my neighbors hear my bass. Going to love every minute of that!
I just recently sold my power generation company, or I would send my guys over to do the install for you. I was a dealer for Generac, Kohler, and Cummins Onan, so if you have any questions let me know I can probably steer you in the right direction. I know the differences between the brands very well.

Do you know anything about Corbin? I was dealing with Home Depot. Corbin is the company that does it for Home Depot. I am planning on going with a Generac NG. I wish you would have said something, I would have done this years ago if I knew you were involved with generators.

Yeah, I typically don't talk about my businesses around here. I'm not telling you not to go with Home Depot, all I'll say is I've had to shake my head many times at the craftsmanship of the jobs I've seen done through Home Depot. Amazing they pass inspections, but it's been a free for all since Sandy and many inspectors will slap a sticker on anything.

The problem is the low margins they're operating under dealing with Home Depot. It's all about volume and slapping them in as fast as possible. It really depends on your tolerance for poor workmanship vs. price. They're cheap, that's for sure. I didn't even bother trying to compete in that space. No way I could put my name on work like that. But I was more money and sometimes that's all some folks are worried about.

Nothing wrong with Generac generators though. I would just think twice about a high volume, low margin installer though.

Just my 2c.

You also need to talk to your power company. For instance, where I'm at you cant install a generator that touches the power companies grid without using one of their approved ats's first.

Not to run this off course, but the only reason I had been going through HD was because I seen the units there and they said they installed them? I really have never seen any generator companies, especially living down here. If you know who I should call that is in my area or who will do the work, shoot me a PM or a text!
