How Much Will It Cost To Install A Whole House Generator?


Whole house generators are becoming more popular year after year because of higher demand for electricity.

Automatic standby generator systems can be found on almost everywhere including homes, businesses, schools, data centers, public works buildings, hospitals, gas stations, government buildings etc. Simply, if you have electricity service, you've probably experienced a power outage sometime in your lifetime. You can protect yourself from power outages by getting an automatic standby generator installed that runs automatically and hands-free. The question is, how much does a generator system cost to install?



Generator installations are dependent on many variables such as region, equipment costs, electrical installation and on the electrical company you hire to do the work. However, the average price for an automatic standby generator system has reduced greatly over the past few years thanks to technology and manufacturing advances. In most areas across the USA an automatic standby generator system can cost anywhere from $2,500.00 to $4,000.00 on average plus the cost of the generator itself. Most systems installed are in the $3,000.00 range for the average sized 2,500 square foot home and includes whole house coverage, even your air conditioning. 

It is very important that a licensed electrician does your installation for obvious reasons but the most important; it will be covered under warranty only if a licensed electrician does your install.  

There are several generator system setups, options, and scenarios available which allows for generator system costs to vary greatly. 

The first question to ask yourself is, what is your goal for backup power needs? Most systems installed cover all of the essentials in your house such as your furnace, refrigerator, sump pumps, well pump, water heater, garage door, kitchen, bathroom, and perhaps a family room. These systems are typically in the $3,000.00 to $4,000.00 range plus the cost of the generator. As you add more circuits to be covered, the bigger the generator that is required. Generators are sized based on the power demand. The more power consumption existing, the bigger the generator is required. At Aurora Generators it is our goal to make sure you have or find the right company to install your generator.
