Fairfax Backup Generator Installation & Maintenance

Contact a Fairfax Electrician Today for Service in Northern VA

When the power goes out, your lights shut off, your devices power down, and you’re stuck wondering what to do until things come back to life. If you have critical components in your home, such as a computer server, or a refrigerator that’s keeping important medications at an appropriate temperature, you may benefit from installing a backup generator that can turn on and continue to provide your home with energy needed to keep these appliances running.

The Fairfax electricians at My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical can help you keep your home powered even when the power shuts off. Our backup generator services can not only provide you with a reliable backup generator, but make sure the generator you do have is ready to handle your needs when the power shuts off. We not only can install a wide variety of generators so you can get one that fits both your electrical needs and your budget, but we do so according to all electrical and building codes to ensure safety. We even offer high-quality generator maintenance services including cleaning, refueling, and testing to make sure the system is ready to go when you need it most, all year long.

Benefits of an Emergency Generator

When most people think of a generator, they think of the loud, grumbling machine they haul out from the garage when they go camping or when their home’s power shuts off. These are known as portable generators, and they’re not your only option. Today, modern emergency standby backup generators are completely different, instead existing inside inauspicious boxes located close to your home. Many generators are also hard-wired and some are even powered by natural gas, meaning you won’t even need to break out the gas can and they’ll have a continue supply of fuel as long as the line is active!

Even a small generator can keep some or all of the following appliances running in your home:

  • Refrigerator
  • Electric lights
  • Electric fans
  • Some ductless air conditioning systems
  • Computers
  • Televisions

Unless you purchase a large standby generator, you may not necessarily be able to use all of your household devices while the power is out. For example, you may not be able to use your air conditioner, central heater or furnace, water heater, electric dryer, washing machine, electric vehicle charger, and plenty more. Even though a generator can help you keep the lights on, they can only do so much, and it’s best that you do what you can to limit your energy consumption while on backup power.
