You will get a lot of answers on this Forum from the DIYers about how easy it is to do, but I submit to you that the peace of mind provided by a qualified electrician is well worth the money you will spend. A qualified electrician will make a review of your present home electrical load and make suggestions to you about the appropriate size generator you would need to meet your needs.

Electricity is not something to fool around with at all. I have had two generators installed by qualified electricians and have had absolutely no problems.
While I do have a generator hooked up like those described above that I did myself, I have a good friend who is an Electrician. He has a saying that he uses a lot. “Electricity is not a Hobby” Sound advice!!
