Episode-794- Chad Kuntz on Back Up Generators

Stand By Generators are an Excellent Option for Back Up Power

Stand By Generators are an Excellent Option for Back Up Power

Join me today as I welcome Chad Kuntz an Electrical Engineer with 10 years of experience working for large utility company building substation generation facilities with back up power redundancy.

Today he joins us to discuss generator systems for our homes, sizing a generator to your needs and deciding between DIY vs. professional installation depending on your ability and system requirements.

Personally I have found that most sales people who call themselves “experts” or “consultants” in the generator industry tend to attempt to sell you the largest system possible vs. address your actual needs.   So I am very happy to have Chad with us today to discuss things from the view of a professional making this decision for himself and his family.

Special Note – I am running a sale on the MSB from now until Dec. 15th.
Full Details Here.

Join me today as we discuss…
