Reliable Backup Generator Installation

A backup generator will provide power to your home or business when you need it most. Whether storms or bad weather cause an outage or you lost power in a blackout from your service provider, your backup generator can automatically kick in, providing enough power to have appliances running until your electricity turns back on. Keep your residential home or commercial building safe with a backup generator that is installed by our team at Jaffe Electric. We will also have you covered once it’s time for maintenance.

Properly Sizing Your Generator

When it comes to the size of a generator, it will depend on the space you have and which appliances you need to work in an outage. Whole-house generators ensure complete comfort until your power returns. From refrigerators to computers, each building will have its own specific needs. Jaffe Electric can assist you in finding the right size generator for your needs with the complete assurance that you will have electricity.

At Jaffe Electric, it is our goal to pair our knowledge of generators and electricity with high-quality electrical services. While we can provide generator repair and maintenance on virtually any brand of standby generator, we install industry-leading generator brand, Generac.

Frequently Asked Questions: Generator Installation

What do I have to do to make the generator work?

The transfer switch monitors power from the utility company and turns the backup generator on and back off again as needed.

What maintenance is required?

To keep your generator running at peak performance, our team recommends scheduling annual maintenance and an oil change.

How do I correctly size a generator for my home?

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all generator. Our team will help you determine the ideal-sized generator for your home.

Why install an automatic backup generator instead of a portable generator?

Automatic generators provide around-the-clock protection, whether you’re home or away, and they turn themselves off when utility power returns, so there is no need to monitor the unit during an outage.
