Emergency Generators: Power When You Need It

By  |  0 Comments

When the power goes out, it doesn’t really matter if the ice cream melts.  (Well, it doesn’t matter TOO MUCH!)

But a power failure also could mean that your sump pump quits working and your basement floods, your home business grinds to a halt because you can’t run your computer, or your home security system stops working.

An emergency generator can help keep you, your property, and your family safe and comfortable during a power failure, whether it’s caused by lightning, an ice storm, a fallen tree branch, a car hitting a utility pole, or high energy demand during heat waves and cold snaps.

At Joseph Frederick & Sons, we know folks typically call us when they need help right away, but we’re also in the business of helping you prepare for emergencies.

The time to buy a generator is before the power goes out. When power failures occur, many stores sell out quickly.  Some desperate homeowners become victims of price gouging, or they simply end up buying expensive professional-grade generators with features they don’t need.

Contact our sales department to help you determine which generator is right for your home – then our certified technicians call install your generator safely and professionally.

For more information about emergency generators, visit our website at or call us at (302) 994-5786. Don’t wait until the power goes out, because, for one thing, it’s easier to find the phone number when the lights are working.

Our grandfather started this business in 1947 with one truck, a willingness to work hard, and a sense of integrity. Today, four generations later, we are proud to say that the name Joseph Frederick & Sons means the best in residential and commercial air conditioning, electrical systems, heating, and plumbing. The core values on which our family’s business was first built remain its cornerstone – our sense of integrity, dependability, and quality workmanship has withstood the test of time. We are a proud member of the BBB and past winners of their Torch and Rush awards. We are also a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer and 3-time winner of their prestigious President’s Award.

Our Bath & Kitchen Renovation Department…

Great kitchens and bathrooms are more than just pretty cabinets and nice color combinations. To create a truly great kitchen or bathroom, the plumbing, air flow, and electrical planning must be part of the initial design process, rather than being shoehorned in at the end.  That’s why Joseph Frederick & Sons is the company to call when it’s time to remodel your kitchen or bathroom. With more than 65 years of expertise in heating, cooling, plumbing, and electrical services, we work with you every step of the way, from design through installation, so your new kitchen or bathroom will be well-made both inside and out. We work with top-quality suppliers to ensure that you get the very best cabinets, fixtures, and flooring. To set up a free consultation, contact us today.
