Backup Generator Installation in Southern MD, Northern VA & Washington, DC

Don’t Get Caught in the Dark! Install a Backup Generator

Have you ever been without electricity for a long period of time during an ice, snow, or heavy rain storm in the Southern Maryland or Northern Virginia area? In coastal areas like Waldorf, MD, storms can leave you without power for hours, days, or weeks—which is extremely inconvenient! Losing power can be devastating to homeowners and business owners alike. Having a standby generator ensures your home or business will be able to keep their lights on when the power in the area is knocked out.

If you aren’t sure how much power you’ll need, no need to worry! We supply different sizes and types of Generac generators, so one is guaranteed to fit your needs. John Goudie Electric can wire a backup home generator that will power your heating or cooling system, as well as small appliances, large appliances, sump pumps, well pumps, and all the lighting in your home or business.

Don’t be without power when you need it most—install a generator with Goudie Electric! Contact us to learn more about backup generator installation in Southern Maryland, Northern Virginia, or Washington, DC.

Which Backup Generator Is Right for Me: Standby vs. Manual Transfer Generators

There are numerous factors you should consider when deciding what type of generator to have installed. Your home’s location, the amount of power you need, and your personal preferences make a lot of difference in the size you need. It also makes a difference if you want to supply the whole house with power, or just a few major appliances. You can always contact the experts here at Goudie Electric or even use Generac’s Generator Sizing Calculator.

There are two different types of generators you can choose from in case of a power outage: manual transfer switch generators and standby generators. They both can power your whole home or business but are a bit different in how they operate.

Manual Transfer Switch

In the case of a power outage, a manual transfer switch will allow you to transfer power safely from the generator to your electric panel. You can power your entire home or choose to power the more important circuits until the power utility company restores electricity to your home or business.

Standby Generators

With a standby generator, you will not have to leave your seat in case of a power outage! Within seconds of losing power, your standby generator will engage automatically and bring power back to your home or business like it was never gone.

Benefits of Installing a Backup Generator

The benefits of generator installation include:

  • Keeps perishable food from spoiling. No one likes to waste their groceries. But without a backup power supply, the food in your refrigerator is likely to go bad in an extended blackout. A generator will allow your fridge to keep running, maintaining the freshness of your food.
  • Keeps running on its own. Unlike portable emergency generators, your generator will run off of your business or home’s existing natural gas supply. This means that you won’t have to constantly venture out into the storm to refill the generator with gas—it will automatically supply itself.
  • Powers all your home’s appliances. A generator allows you to continue your daily routine. Whether you have a show you want to watch or a treat you want to bake, your generator will provide a sense of ease and comfort to your entire family by powering all of your home’s appliances—including your air conditioning or heating system!
