  1. Your installer will place an automatic transfer switch, a device that connects your home's electrical system to incoming power and can automatically change sources when needed.
  2. Your new generator is installed outside your home in the location determined by you and your qualified installer.
  3. The generator is connected to the transfer switch according to code.
  4. Your existing fuel source (natural gas or propane lines) are connected to the generator.
  5. Your Cummins home standby generator stands ready to keep your home powered in the event of an outage.

The above describes a typical installation; however, every situation is unique.

The most important thing to remember is safety. Installing a standby generator requires a qualified professional and compliance to various codes (national, state and local).
