Say Goodbye To Power Loss With Our
Generator Wiring & Installation Services


Your One-Stop-Shop Solution For
Whatever Weather May Come Your Way

We offer two main types of generators for homes in the Lehigh Valley: manual generators and automatic generators.

Manual Generator Wiring & Installation

Manual Generator Installation Repair Services Lehigh Valley Pa Shafnisky Electric

Opting for a manual generator installation is a practical and budget-friendly choice, capable of supplying power of up to approximately 17.5-kw to your entire home. Each home poses unique electrical needs and our experts excel at designing a tailored solution that aligns perfectly with your requirements.

Manual generators are portable and wired to your home through an outdoor receptacle.

The setup of an outdoor receptacle might seem straightforward, but our team’s expertise shines through in every detail. We carefully select high-quality brand-new components that are built to withstand harsh weather elements and provide reliable performance for many years to come.

How Homeowners Operate Manual Generators

When you require power, simply head to your main electrical panel or the dedicated generator panel. Activating the auxiliary breaker enables power to flow from the generator into the panel, supplying electricity to your home. This ensures your critical electrical systems stay operational during outages.

Manual generators are portable and can be conveniently stored away when not in use. Plus, if you move, you can easily take your generator with you. Most manual generators run on gasoline and have a wide range of run times depending on how much power is needed and the tank size.

For optimal efficiency, we always recommend a manual generator with automatic idle control that automatically adjusts the output to match your electrical demands.

Automatic Generator Wiring & Installation

Automatic generator installations are your gateway to uninterrupted comfort and convenience! Starting around 8-kw of power output, these generators provide an array of user-friendly options, permanently installed on-site to cater to your power needs.

Whether it’s your cozy residence or a bustling commercial space, generators can deliver power ranging from over 600-kw for homes to a staggering million kilowatts for commercial setups.

Residential generators offer the choice of LP (liquid propane) or NG (natural gas), while larger models may opt for diesel fuel. When considering an automatic generator, it’s important to consider local codes and guidelines along with the National Electrical Code.

But you don’t need to worry about all that — Shafnisky Electric will handle it!

Automatic Generators Come Equipped With Features Like:

  • Automatic Power Sensing: Automatically activates when a power outage is detected.
  • Seamless Transfer: Smoothly transitions to emergency power through your transfer switch.
  • Power Restoration Sensing: Automatically switches back to utility power once it’s restored.
  • Standby Mode: Returns to standby mode after cooling down.
  • Regular Exercise: Conducts a 15-minute weekly exercise (customizable) to keep fluids fresh and the battery charged.

But Which Generator Is Best For My Home?

Which Generator Is Right For Lehigh Valley Home Shafnisky Electric

That being said, manual generators are great for Lehigh Valley & Northern New Jersey homeowners on a budget. Our expert team will guide you through the selection process and seamlessly install the perfect generator for your home, ensuring hassle-free and reliable operation 365 days a year.

Great, Respectful, Clean, & Knowledgeable

We have a 130yr old house, which comes with many challenges when upgrading electricity and diagnosing problems. Every 2-3yrs we get our electric want list together and call Shafnisky. The guys are great, respectful, clean, & knowledgeable. They keep us up to date on the project, and they do very minimal damage which is amazing with brick and lathe walls.


Generator Wiring & Installation Service FAQ

Are You A Licensed Generator Distributor?

Yes, we are a fully licensed distributor and installer for Generac generators.

How Much Of My Home Can I Power With A Generator?

The extent to which you can power your home with a generator, whether manual or automatic, depends on the generator's size. Automatic generators will seamlessly activate all essential systems during a power outage, while manual generators require manual startup and connection.

How Soon Can You Source A Generator For My Home?

Fortunately, sourcing a generator for your home is now more convenient than ever before. With improved availability, we can secure a generator for your needs in a relatively short time frame.

If I Already Own A Generator, Can You Wire & Install It?

Yes, absolutely. If you already own a generator, we can wire and install it for you. Additionally, if you're looking to relocate your generator to a different location, we can assist with that as well.

What’s The Difference Between Wiring & Installation?

Wiring typically pertains to portable generators with manual operation, while installation involves stationary automatic generators designed for whole-house use. The choice between wiring and installation hinges on which type of generator you choose.

Will My EV Car Chargers Run Off My Generator?

Usually. If your generator is big enough to handle your Level 2 EV charger, it'll keep working normally during a power outage. But if you added the charger after the generator, and it's a Level 1 charger, it might take longer to charge. We make sure the generator fits your home's needs, so if you add a car charger later, we need to check if the original calculations still work for the extra electricity.
