I am bidding on a Job, that involves the installation of a 7 KW, Natural Gas fueled generator. This is the type sold at the Big Blue Box. It seems like a fairly easy install, but I was wondering if anybody has had any experience with these, & how you went about pricing the job ? I will be responsible for getting a Lic Plumber to hook up the Gas, and will test it, etc. Thanks in advance !!!
If it is a Generac/Guardian system, the typical pre- packaged system takes about 3-4 hrs to do. Make sure to put the generator 3 ft. from any combustible materials( like the house). also, should try to get as close as possible to the main panel. the genarator requires 11-14" water column pressure, NG or LPG. this usually requires a seperate regulator. If you postion the unit right, there is little in extra material to get. An annual maintenence agreement is a great way to make additional revenue from generator sales. Look at around 1-2 hrs(depending on liquid or air cooled) for annual maintainence.
