Professional Generator Installation 

Proper installation is the foundation of a reliable and safe generator system throughout Riverside and surrounding Southern California communities

It involves a few important steps, including:

  • Site assessment: Before installation, we'll assess your property to determine the ideal location for your generator. We'll take into consideration factors such as noise levels, ventilation, and the proximity to gas and electrical connections.
  • Electrical work: Our licensed electricians will handle transfer switch installation, which is required to connect your generator to your home's electrical system. This ensures that the generator safely provides power to your home without risking injury to utility workers who may be restoring power.
  • Fuel source installation: If you have a gas or propane-powered generator, our Riverside generator pros also install the proper fuel source, which may include a gas meter or propane tank.
  • Testing and commissioning: We'll run a series of tests to ensure that your generator is running smoothly and is connected correctly to your home or business.

When to Call for Generator Repair

You should consider generator repair in Riverside if you are experiencing problems with your generator after a storm. Storms can cause damage to your generator, so it’s important to contact a repair technician as soon as possible after a storm. Another sign that your generator needs repair is if it’s older than 10 years. Generators have a lifespan of about 10 to 15 years, so if yours is past that age, it’s likely to have more problems than not. Another indication that your generator needs repair is if it’s making unusual sounds, such as buzzing or grinding. Finally, if your generator isn’t providing power as it should, call for repair.

Some of the most common issues our technicians can solve include:

  • Faulty starter motor or battery: If your generator won't start, it's likely due to a faulty starter motor or battery. We can diagnose and repair these issues.
  • Blockages in the fuel system: Clogs in the fuel system can cause your generator to sputter or die. Our Riverside generator repair team can clean the fuel system and get your generator back to running smoothly.
  • Overloaded circuits: Running too many appliances on a single circuit can overload your generator and cause it to shut down. We can help you avoid this issue by configuring your generator for your specific needs.

Call for Generator Repair After a Storm

Southern California is known for having four seasons in one day, so it’s not uncommon for us to experience a variety of weather conditions in a single day. Unfortunately, this also means that we’re at risk of experiencing power outages. When the power goes out, it can be frustrating, but it’s even more frustrating when you realize that the generator isn’t providing power as it should. 

Call for generator repair after a storm, and for maintenance during normal weather conditions, by contacting Trout Electric in Riverside at (951) 338-9592.
