Can’t I just purchase a generator online?
Working with a generator company throughout the installation process is the best way to ensure you are choosing the correct unit for your home and that the installation will be completed and documented correctly. Yes, you can buy a generator online, however it is best to purchase your equipment from an authorized service dealer and grow a relationship with the company that can maintain your generator throughout its life.
Purchasing your generator from an authorized service provider also protects your warranty, which begins on the date of the start-up. Online sales are subject to a warranty start date of when the unit was shipped from the factory. In some cases customers can lose 9 months to 1 year of their generator warranty purchasing online.
