Backup Generator Installation for Homes in Maryland, DC & Northern Virginia

A backup generator is a smart investment for your home, since you never know when an outage will happen, and you don’t want to be stuck without power for hours or even days. Whether an outage is caused by storms or bad weather, or it is due to a blackout from your service provider, your backup generator will automatically kick in, providing enough power to have the appliances you need the most working until electricity is restored to your property.

At Jaffe Electric, we’ll work closely with you to decide on the appropriate generator solution for your home. 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. Our electricians have experience installing all types of generators in a variety of homes throughout Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia. We install industry-leading generator brand, Generac.
