The Back-Up Power Generator Situation
You see, Dan and Patty bought a back-up power generator last year, just after the hurricane season. They got a good deal from the contractor and felt like they were saving a few bucks on the installation. Dan was excited. He could put some of the savings toward fishing boat, he’d had his eye on. So, Dan and Patty got the necessary permits and had it inspected. Everything seemed fine until recently. Dan called to inquire about getting maintenance agreement for their emergency generator. What he learned will make you sick.
Hire the Best Generator Technicians
You see, the contractor Dan and Patty hired wasn’t familiar with the manufacturer’s specifications for their home generator. As it turned out, neither was the local inspector. The emergency generator was installed improper by not sizing the main feeder wire correctly and running low voltage wires in the same conduit with feeder wire . Even worse, the generator wasn’t mounted properly. Dan and Patty were lucky a fire hadn’t started. But here’s the kicker. Dan and Patty learned that as a result of this, the warranty on their back-up power generator was now void. Dan’s vision for a new fishing boat quickly sunk.
