Location & Noise Factor

While some home generators are quieter than others, the location of the unit should always be taken into consideration. For example, you may want to locate the generator away from windows, especially bedrooms. We always advise our customers to adhere to this important comfort factor when we make recommendations concerning the location of a standby generator.

Site Preparation

Large liquid-cooled generators above 20kW require a concrete slab due to the size and weight of the unit. For smaller air-cooled home generators, we frame the home generator site area with 4”x6” Grade 1 treated timbers, and fill it with base rock and pea gravel. The rock base helps minimize vibration, noise, keeps the generator cleaner and above any surface water and is more aesthetically pleasing than concrete. We can also provide you with our Premium Pad with concrete and stone construction.

Fuel Supply

Your home generator needs an adequate supply of natural gas or propane gas as generator fuel. The closer to the fuel source, the lower the cost to connect the generator.

Electrical Interface

When installing a home standby generator system, it is almost always more cost effective to be close to your electric service entrance or electric panels.

GenSpring Power Installation Policy

All aspects of the installation of your new generator system will be done in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations and applicable electrical and natural/propane gas codes. We will strive to complete the installation of your generator in as quickly as possible sometimes in as little as one day. The time required to complete your specific installation is a function of the complexity of the job and the permitting/inspection process, if necessary.

If your municipal or county government policy calls for permitting and inspection, the required permitting steps and the inspection process will add time and cost to the installation. Please be advised that the scope of our proposal is limited to the proper installation of the generator system only. If, upon inspection, the municipal or county inspector determines that because of changes in the code since your home was built that other modifications to non-generator components of your electrical system are required, then we would be pleased to complete these modifications at an additional cost on a time and material basis.

If you have questions or concerns regarding our installation or the permitting/inspection process, please let us know.

Have confidence that your generator has been correctly installed, as GenSpring Power inspects and starts up every generator we sell.

Recent Customer Comments

We are always losing power in our home and decided to price having a home generator installed.The estimates we received from other companies were considerably higher and took 6-8 weeks. GenSpring’s price was more reasonable and he (Glenn Preble) was ready to install immediately. He was so easy to work with and so reliable.

With confidence, I recommend the professional and efficient team of GenSpring. When I finally decided to treat our home (and, the family!) to the comfort and security of a Generator, I spoke with other home owners to learn their experiences and researched my options, features and important facts about installation. I interviewed several installers and – hands down – decided to use GenSpring. Their follow through met and exceeded my high expectations. They made the process efficient and easy. The best word to describe the Prebles is COMPETENT! For the security of your home and wise financial outlay, installing a generator is something that only an expert should be trusted to complete. In the North Georgia area, I could only find one company that gained my confidence to complete the work and provide the unit: GenSpring.

After losing power for more than 4 days during last winter’s ice storm, we decided to research a whole house generator. As we talked to home and business owners, Clayton Preble and his company GenSpring Power were the names most often recommended. We have found Clayton to be extremely fair and professional. His bid was very well priced and the installation went just as he had promised. We have also been impressed by the quality of his employees. They are all long term, loyal employees who are capable and professional. I would recommend without reservation Clayton Preble and GenSpring Power for your generator needs.
