Home Generator Installation

Backup Generators

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average American household loses power once or twice a year for an average of about 3 hours. Power outages can be caused by a severe thunderstorms, excessive snowfall, bitter cold, or even a hurricane. Outages in the Washington area have known to last for days or even weeks. When this happens, homeowners are forced to deal with a variety of problems: spoiled food, burst pipes, flooded basements, even extreme indoor temperatures. Excessive summer heat or the bitter chill of winter inside of your home is something no family wants to face.

None of these situations sound very pleasant, do they? Why not talk to Echo Electric about installing a backup generator system for your home?
