Installing a standby generator requires a qualified professional and compliance to various codes (national, state and local). Fortunately, Cummins has plenty of Authorized Dealers who can help! The following is a guide for a typical installation:
First, a transfer switch-an electrical device that connects your home to power from either your generator or your utility provider-is installed.
Next, your generator is installed outside of your home. The location will depend on a variety of factors and code compliance requirements.
Your generator is then wired to the transfer switch.
The fuel lines (either propane or natural gas) are now connected to the generator. That’s it! Your generator is ready to give you years of safe, dependable backup power. Regular servicing is recommended to keep everything in working order. Your Cummins Authorized Dealer can give you the details.
