Q. WHAT IS A STANDBY GENERATOR?
A. We sell, install and service standby generators that are designed to power most of your home systems. These are different from portable generators that might power one appliance at a time during an emergency. A standby generator is wired and connected to your home, like your heating system. When a power outage occurs, it kicks on, using gas or propane to generate electrical power. The generators we offer are very quiet and reliable. With a whole-home generator, you will be able to flip a switch and keep multiple systems in your house running.
Q. HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE GENERATOR IS RIGHT FOR ME?
A. The size of your generator is directly related to the number of appliances and home energy systems (such as heating, water heating, lighting, etc.) that you wish to power. When we do our in free home estimate our home energy specialist will review your individual needs with you, and look at your electrical, gas and other systems to understand any limitations. The price of a generator is directly related to the size, so you basically pay for how much you want to power up in a blackout.
Q. I PURCHASED MY GENERATOR FROM ANOTHER BUSINESS. CAN YOU REPAIR IT?
A. Yes, we have skilled service techs ready to work on all types of fixed residential generators.

Kudos to Micah!! Always so nice and knowledgeable and efficient. Worked on problem w/ boiler (making a strange noise). He made adjutants and even called the boiler manufacturer for further guidance. Kelleher should be proud their employees.Janet, Service Richmond
Jim & Brandon are courteous, professional & hardworking. Jim did a walk through of my property looking for vents etc. That was very helpful. Above & beyond service identifying a vent on the exterior that had not been working because it had been painted over! And then using a utility knife to free the louvers. An efficient solution! Thank you Jim & Brandon at Kelleher HVAC!Paula, Electrical Richmond
Service personnel were very professional & knowledgeable.Douglas, Customer Service Richmond
My heat pump repairs were done professionally and as scheduled. Steve and his helper went right to work, including laying a dropcloth in the hall and cleaning up afterwards. They also got a new part delivered during the visit when the first one turned out to be damaged when they opened the box (pre-existing damage, not their fault).Jill, Service Glen Allen
The on-call Kelleher rep was very courteous and tried to fix our problem remotely but was unable. He came out on short notice and promptly diagnosed the problem, we were very happy!Chad, Electrical Richmond

We have used Kelleher for a long time. Everyone that came to our home for repairs or installation are very professional people. Don’t think we will ever change to another company.R, Service Sandy Hook
Experienced an electrical A/C heating problem on Christmas Eve. Steve was dispatched and able to bypass the problem allowing me to have heat for the holidays. Early on the first normal work day, Kelleher called, obtained the replacement part, and sent Jim and Brandon to install the part. Everything was handled in a very professional manner and quickly. Without their response my holiday would have been very cold.B, Electrical Henrico
On time, friendly, and job well done… as usual for Kelleher!Harvey, Electrical Richmond
