Sick of dealing with the hassle of a portable generator? Has your old whole-home generator bit the dust? We can help.
A whole-home generator (also called a “standby generator”) is the ideal choice for homeowners looking to retain the majority of their home’s functionality during an outage. Whole-home units can operate for days, even weeks if needed, and they are hardy enough to power all of the electrical systems within your home if sized appropriately. And unlike portable generators, a whole-home system is nearly silent when operating.
At Jack Lehr, we are proud to install whole-home generators in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton and nearby communities. We’re proud to work with Trane to bring you a reliable, trusted generator installed and serviced by experts with the training to do the job right.
Generator maintenance generally includes testing the generator to make sure it works, giving it an oil change, replacing the filter, and refilling the gas if necessary.
You should follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for maintaining your generator. As a rule of thumb, the oil should be changed earlier on for a new generator (after about 25 hours of use) and then at longer intervals after the first change (every 50-60 hours of use).

This depends on your specific make and model, so you should check your owner’s manual for details. Some models are made to last eight to 12 hours, and some can run for days.

When looking for a generator for home use the size will be dictated by the number of appliances or circuits you want to power in your home. A bare-bones system will typically operate lights, refrigeration, and the water heater—sometimes HVAC systems or air quality systems. The best way to size your generator properly is to simply have a professional do it for you. However, if you’re interested and trying to estimate, you’ll need to find the electrical demand of your home. This requires you to list out the items that will be powered, how much power they consume (both while running and when starting), and then calculating these figures into the total kW needed.
The size will also impact the cost of the generator and the cost of installation, which bears keeping in mind. With that said, generators are much more versatile these days, and typically there’s an affordable option for everyone.
