When You’re Shopping For a Home Generator There’s a Lot to Consider. We’ll Help You Choose One That’s Just Right For You

We’ll size a generator that’s right for your needs and your budget.

Here’s 5 things you need to know:

  • 1 Most home generators are fueled by propane or natural gas. We sell both types and can help you decide the best option for your situation.
  • 2 The price of every generator installation depends on how much you want backed up - your entire home (bigger generator), or just the essentials?
  • 3 Every price quote hinges on a site visit. We need to assess site accessibility, the amount of trenching, choice of fuel, location of fuel source, accessibility of your main panel and electrical demands of your home.
  • 4 Your Generator needs to be installed correctly, so it’s legally safe and actually starts when you need it. Using an uncertified contractor often leads to a substandard installation, prone to failure.
  • 5 The average cost of a new, air-cooled generator (including installation) is somewhere between $10,000-$14,000. There are many variables and options to consider. The cost to hookup the generator to natural gas or propane, is not included and needs to be discussed with your plumber or your propane provider.

Kohler Home Generator

Kohler Home Generators

For high-end residential and commercial installations, we like Kohler. Installation costs are the same as Generac, but the Kohler units are a bit more expensive.

In our experience, the Kohler units are just as durable as Generac and have similar repair track records. Depending on the homeowner's needs and requirements, we may recommend specific Kohler models over Generac and vice versa. During a site visit, options are discussed so you can make an educated decision based on your needs.

Generac Home Generators

The Generac Guardian series provides excellent balance between power and affordability. It’s a very popular choice amongst homeowners.

The Guardian series comes in many models with power ratings ranging from 8-20 kilowatts. For larger residences, Generac offers more powerful solutions.

John Young - Kingston, NY

"I wanted to know that my home was going to be safe whether I was there or not.”

“I’m retired now, and I couldn’t help feeling that I was married to the house in the wintertime. I couldn’t take a vacation or go away.

If the power went out for an extended period, you can do a lot of damage to the house.

So to protect the house, so that I could come and go as I pleased, I wanted the generator there. I wanted to know that my home was going to be safe whether I was there or not.”

Did You Know? You Don't Pay Sales Tax on Generator Installation, and You May Get a Break on Your Insurance

In New York State, installing a permanent home generator is considered a capital improvement, so you will not pay any sales tax on your generator installation. Plus, we’ll fill out all the necessary capital improvement paperwork for you...

And some insurance companies may even give you a discount on your homeowner’s policy when your house is protected by a permanent generator (check with your insurance carrier.)

One Company You Can Depend on to Install Your Generator Properly

  • We handle the entire installation from start to finish. That means you only deal with us and your fuel company (we can coordinate with them for you), so the job goes smoothly because we’re not dependent on multiple contractors.

  • We’re factory-trained and authorized to service and repair Kohler and Generac generators. Many contractors, including the big box stores, are only authorized to sell generators but not to service, repair or honor factory warranties the way we can.
  • Your generator will be installed properly because all generator installations are overseen by master electrician Eric Barbieri, a generator specialist with over 35 years of electrical experience.

Solid Installation, Stellar Support, That's The Gen-Plus Advantage

We don’t compete on price with our service. We’re not the cheapest on the block and we don’t try to be. That’s because we offer a premium service and we know it’s something that’s very hard to find in the Hudson Valley.

So, if you’re just looking for the lowest possible price for a generator installation, there are a lot of unqualified electricians dabbling in generator sales that will be happy to take your money.

We know because we clean up after these guys all the time.

During big storms, we get our share of emergency calls from desperate homeowners with generator problems. They’re calling us because the contractor who installed their generator can’t be reached or couldn’t deliver.

We try to help everyone, but our existing customers always come first.
