Reviews for Generator Installation in Chicago

Installed a Generac whole-home generator. They did a great job, from the initial contact all the way through the install.

I met with Don and he worked with me on the price and configuration for a GE unit. However, the unit we agreed upon would not be approved by the Wilmette Village so he switched it to the Kohler unit. During this time, communication was irregular and only updated when I asked. The installation did not go well. The installer parked on the edge of my parking pad and crushed the lip but afterwards Don claimed no responsibility and was quite aggressive about it. They poured the concrete pad high to make it level rather than dig down on one side and I had to put in a raised bed to accommodate it. The generator housing was somehow bent during installation and 10 months later they replaced the hinges and its now able to close. The gas lines were never buried properly. They know (sales and installers) what they were doing and it operates properly.

Installation went great. The team was professional and very knowledgeable about electricity and generators. We will likely recommend them to others interested in installing a generator.

Tech was here for 40 minutes to install an outdoor hvac disconnect that I provided. I was charged $264 for labor plus $89 service call. When I spoke to Ken the service manager to inquire about their hourly labor rate he was less than sympathetic. I pointed out that my labor bill reflected a rate of over $300 an hour and I was not happy. He responded with " I am not going to justify our rates and there will be no adjustment to your bill." AWE will not be bidding on my new furnace and AC replacement, nor any other future work for me.

My husband and I were referred to DFC Mechanical & Remodeling by our neighbors. We needed to replace our furnaces and also get information on installing a generator. Dan from the company came out to educate us on options and pricing. He was very informative and most importantly knowledgeable. After we received the bid, we decided to proceed with DFC Mechanical & Remodeling. The day came for installation. Dan and his crew were on time and professional. He explained in great detail how to maintain and use our furnaces and generator. They went above and beyond service. I highly recommend DFC! They also left our home clean after all repairs and installation were done.

Penco Electric Inc
5.0
Received several bids for purchase and installation of a whole house back up generator. I found Penco Electric to be extremely professional and friendly from home visit when evaluation of our needs and our concerns were addressed and options provided; to installation of the home back up generator; to follow up questions I had several weeks after installation. I requested a whole house surge protector be installed at the time of the generator. The exterior and interior work areas following installation were left very clean. So pleased with Penco Electric's professionalism, I am having them return for annual check up/tune up of the back up generator. Absolutely no regrets in purchasing our home back up generator from Penco Elecric; having them install the equipment; and performing checkups.

GenX Generator
5.0
GenX was great. They responded quickly and authorized replacing the damaged control board, even though Generac said that it should not be covered since having ants is like getting struck by lightening. I don't know how often folks get struck by lightening but in Chicago having ants is an annual occurrence around the house. Anyway Bryan took care of it. We had the unit installed a couple of years ago and the guys at Highland Park Electric did a great job at the install. I recommend both GenX and Highland Park Electric!

Both the sales transaction and the installation went very smoothly. Everyone was very professional and the installers were extremely clean and neat. No short cuts. Took the time to fully explain the generator to us. A blue ribbon company!

Oakwood Electric & Generator
1.0
I purchased a Generac 22 KW whole-house generator from Oakwood Electric and Generator in October of 2020. With the supply chain issues, they could not install the generator until March. Last week the generator was exercising (which it does once a week for 5 minutes) when it literally BLEW UP (see pictures). This week Oakwood sent their tech out to look at the machine. And, after doing a 10-minute visual inspection he said, "I have no idea what caused this." However, though they have “no idea” what cause the explosion, they think everything will be just fine if they replace the damaged parts (instead of replacing the whole machine). They ordered the parts damaged by the explosion. So put yourself in my shoes: • You spend 10K on a new generator so you can have Peace of Mind in case of emergency. • The thing blows up after 5 months of operation. • The vendor you bought it from refuses to do anything more than replace those parts visible damaged by the explosion. • Then, every time there is a storm, you get to wonder and worry whether the generator will perform to standard if the power fails. You get to wonder and worry about whether your basement will flood if the generator doesn't work. The folks at Oakwood said, "We can't prevent your machine from failing." They also told me if I wasn't happy with their service, I could work with another Generac contractor (right - because they don't want to deal with the warranty work)! The lady at Oakwood sent me a copy of the warranty and told me to "call Generac" if I was not happy – which I have done. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR - BUY THE KOHLER! It's a little more expensive, but my brother has had a Kohler for 20 years and never had these kinds of problems. Generac is cheap (plastic) and the company does not stand behind their product. I have nothing else to say about Oakwood.

I previously had contracted Stephen from Amazon's home services menu after purchasing a chandelier and matching foyer light fixture to replace existing ones. He arrived early and waited outside in his vehicle until the scheduled appt. time. He was professional and efficient throughout the process; brought his own drop cloths and hand-vac to keep the area clean and to clean up any residual dust. Throughout the process Stephen was patient and informative, answering questions and being quietly friendly. We were impressed with him and when I purchased matching sconces, we didn't hesitate to hire him for this second job. Stephen arrived early again to install the sconces. He investigated whether wiring from the attic or crawlspace would be preferable, proceeded to cut into the walls to install the boxes and also replaced an existing single light switch with a two light switch with dimmer; all installed perfectly, the larger hole he had to cut was completely covered by the plate with no touch up required. The new switch we purchased wouldn't work so he drove to the store to find the correct type. We couldn't be more pleased and intend to hire Stephen again for another installation. In short, he arrives punctually, works efficiently and the finished product looks perfect. He also advised us on a low cost solution to an existing over the sink light issue, which we appreciated and implemented.

Recent Review: It went very well. Our timing to purchase the generator was not good though. Just as we decided we needed one, there was a big storm on the East Coast and then another in California and you could not buy a generator in Illinois. Jack bird-dogged the availability of the generators for several months until one became available. He installed it in less than one day and also built up a platform (at my request to keep it above an area that occasionally floods) for no additional charge. The generator works fine and runs a self-test every week. It has kicked in once for several hours when the electrical service when out and I did not even notice it was running when I returned home. Also, don't forget to check to see that your gas line is sufficient to power the generator. Jack prompted us on this and we had Nicor check it out. It required an upgrade of the gas meter and this had to be scheduled and installed before the generator. If you are considering getting a generator, you should seriously consider having Jack Blazejewski and Blazer Electric install it.
