Generator Shop Cordova TN Whole House Standby Generator Installation

Benchmark Electric, LLC is a Cordova-based Generator Shop specializing in turnkey standby generator installations. In addition, Benchmark is an authorized dealer for each of the top-three U.S. manufacturers of whole house generators, including:

Standby generator installations are handled exclusively by Benchmark Electric's factory trained professional technicians. Outside electrical contractors are never used.

Benchmark Electric only uses outside contractors when the work required is outside of their expertise (e.g., plumbing gas lines, concrete work, crane operators, etc.).

Most standby generator installations require a licensed electrician and plumber.

Whole House Generators

Whole house generators are connected to every circuit in the house and are sized to keep you comfortable throughout your home during summer and winter power outages. 

To accomplish connecting the generator to all house circuits, an automatic transfer switch (ATS) is connected to each main breaker panel. Homes with two or more main breaker panels will require an ATS for each panel. 

Now that the transfer switches are connected to each main breaker panel, the chosen standby generator must be able to maintain whole house electrical loads with all A/Cs starting and running along with other house loads also "on". Proper generator sizing is critical for whole house generators.

The big energy-consumers in most homes include:

  • Air Conditioners
  • Electric Heat
  • Electric Ovens
  • Clothes Dryers
  • Electric Hot Water Heaters

Consult a generator professional from Benchmark Electric to properly size a whole house generator for your home.


Partial House Backup Generators

Many homeowners are interested in covering "just the essentials". Enough to stay comfortable during an outage.

Here are a few of the more common essentials the pros at Benchmark Electric can connect to a home backup generator:

  • Fish Aquariums ← a popular request!
  • Refrigerator(s)
  • Freezer(s)
  • Microwave
  • Coffee Pot
  • Well Pump ← Important for having running water
  • Sump Pump ← Critical in preventing flooding
  • Home Health Care Medical Equipment
  • Gate Operator
  • Garage Door Opener
  • Gas Furnace Fan Blower Motors
  • Run 1-2 A/Cs (of 4+ A/C System)
  • Security System
  • TV / Cable / Satellite
  • Internet
  • 2-3 or more light circuits
  • and a host of unique circuits deemed "essential"

A 10-13kW should handle the other listed electrical loads above, excluding A/Cs. Step up to the Cummins RS20A for 20/18kW performance including the ability to start and run up to a 5-ton central air conditioning compressor.

Talk to a generator professional at Benchmark Electric for more information on partial house standby generators.

Portable Generators

Any portable generator can be safely connected to your house electrical panel without back-feeding over utility lines. So, don't worry about running extension cords in and out of doors and windows.

Benchmark Electric can connect your portable generator or supply you with a generator in sizes up to 17,500 watts. These higher wattage portables can power lights, TVs, laptops, refrigerators, freezers, window air conditioners and some 2-stage, high-efficiency central air conditioning compressors.

Benchmark Electric will supply you with a generator cord of any desired length. Simply connect one end to the generator and the other end to the outdoor receptacle installed by Benchmark Electric's expert technician.

Why Are We Seeing So Many Power Outages?

Over 50 million Americans lost power for more than a day in 2003. The grid-failure impacted the northeast USA from Ohio to New York and a portion of Canada.

An already weak power grid grows weaker each year due to a growing population, new construction, and more frequent extreme weather.

According to an article posted in Inside Energy, the number of power outages doubles every 5-years and has been doing so for over two decades. That means there has been an 8-fold increase in power outages in the past 20-years, underscoring the need for backup generators for many homes and businesses.

“As I write this, our utility power is off, the wind is blowing the snow across the lake, temperatures are in the teens, and we’re warm and cozy. The generator is so quiet! Thanks for a job well done!”
