Home Backup Generator Installation & Repair
Your Washington DC home’s electric power is a crucial necessity that keeps the lights on and gives you hot water in the shower. It’s such a big part of your life that you may take it for granted, until something goes wrong.

How Does a Generator Work?
A backup generator is installed outside of your home, similar to a heat pump or air conditioning unit. Generators convert mechanical energy, created in the engine, to electricity. Generators are powered by propane or natural gas. Depending on the manufacturer and model of the generator, one tank of fuel is usually enough to give power for 8 hours, but you may need to refill the tank for extended power outages.
For some generator models, you may have to turn your generator on manually when the power goes out. Or, if equipped with an automatic transfer switch, the generator will start automatically when the power goes out whether you are at home or away. Some generator models allow you to switch between manual and automatic control.
