If you live in Northeast Ohio, you’re no stranger to power outages. Blind & Sons home professionals live in Akron, Barberton, and Hillsborough County communities, so we’ve experienced the inconvenience and damage a power outage can do to homes and commercial properties.

Benefits of Generator Installation
Protecting your family comes first. But our electrical devices like smartphones are also needed for safety. Losing power can mean losing connections to emergency and medical services.

Generator Installation FAQs
Whole-house generator installation is not a DIY (do-it-yourself) project. You’ll need to consult with us to determine what size generator will support your home or commercial property.
Is my whole-house generator tax-deductible?
Maybe. If your generator was installed for medical reasons – and recommended by a medical professional – you may receive up to 10% credit on your gross income. If the Governor of Ohio declares a state of emergency (resulting from a blizzard, flood, etc.), your possibility for claiming a tax deduction on your whole-house generator purchase and installation increases.
Should my whole-house generator be installed inside my house?
No. For safety reasons, your generator needs to be installed away from indoor living spaces on solid ground that is not flood-prone.
Will installing a whole-house generator really increase my property value?
Absolutely. When installed correctly, a whole-house generator can increase your property value a minimum of five percent.*
What is the cost of a whole-house generator installation?
The costs vary widely and depend on where you live, the type and square footage of your property, and your electricity requirements. (The short answer is, anywhere from $500 to $10,000. The average is $3,500.**)
