A Typical Install by DHM Services

First: We meet to discuss the project and do a power analysis of your house.
Second: We provide you with diagrams for the project and a full written estimate.
Third: When you accept, we start any needed paperwork with the install.
Fourth: Once all this is done, we start the project.
Fifth: As needed, the local building inspector comes over to inspect our work and confirm that it meets local ordinance.
After that: You do not need to worry about losing electricity again.

As the project progresses, you will see some of the following events happen:

Cutting a hole for a cement pad
This project was to be decorative, so a deep foundation and buried conduit were required to supply the foundations for a safe and beautiful finished result. Generac air-cooled units come with a built-in pad, so this is not needed. Larger and less formal installations can use a pre-fabricated pad.
Letting Cement Cure
Here, the cement has been poured and is resting until it is appropriately set.
Generator on pad
Here the generator has been placed and wired in to the house. At this point, a privacy screen can be added to dress up the install and divert prying eyes from the finished product.
Framing in the pad
For this install, to provide proper ventillation for the pad size, only 3 sides were treated. The back is completely open for maximum cooling.
Topless solution with appeal
At this point, the unit looks nice, has plenty of air flow for cooling, and the exterior trim is made of durable exterior plastic.
Covered and concealed solution
Here, the deck is on. For a bit of whimsy, the owner wanted to add a cupola and a weathervane. The result is a well breathing, safe, and dressy application.
