Marshall and Tony are the owners of SciFiHomes Inc and do all of the work themselves. They are knowledgeable, professional and highly responsive...24/7. They kept me informed of their schedule and did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it. You can't ask for anything more of a business or a contractor. If you need an emergency generator, these are the people you can count on to do a superb job.

Very clean installation, done on schedule. They even cleaned up some issues with the existing two 200-amp electrical panels (now sub-panels).

Our old Generac home generator had died and we received several estimates for a new home generator. We decided to go with SciFiHomes, Inc. based on the fact that they could install a Cummins industrial/military grade generator into residential homes. The real selling points were that we would be receiving a high grade generator that is extremely quiet compared to the competition. Tony and Marshall are Master electricians who are ultimate professionals in customer service. They were punctual in their visits (initial site estimate, install, and inspection) and thoroughly explained how the process would unfold. As Master electricians, Tony and Marshall are extremely meticulous and I've never seen a more cleanly wired electrical panel box. During the install they noticed that the top cover to the generator had a slight scratch/dent from the delivery. They said it was under warranty and would order a new top cover. I told them it was minor and that they didn't need to, but they still followed through and came out later to install the new pristine cover. These two guys are throwbacks to another era, who pride themselves in customer service. They're definitely not the traditional "in and out" contractors you normally deal with in northern Virginia. Because of this, I'm contracting them for all my annual service maintenance. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the quality workmanship of SciFi Homes, and even more importantly, the quality and quietness of a Cummins home generator!

I bought a home that had an old breaker panel with wires everywhere and an extra breaker panel added for the HVAC. Tony and Marshall combined the two old breaker panels into a new breaker panel that was switchable for a generator. The replacement included installing a a new switchable breaker panel, a sub-panel so I would have extra breaker spots, all new breakers and a connection to plug in a generator outside the house so I wouldn't have to run extension cords. They arrived when they said they would and the work was well done and has had no issues. The only thing I wish they had done that in no way detracts from the excellent work they did would have been to confirm the existing labels on the breakers . I would definitely recommend them.

Ditto to what Jerry D. said. I had 22KW Cummins installed. I haven't had a power outage since, but the auto tests have occurred without incident. Great guys and great service.

These two guys are the best! We had a Cummins 20K generator installed just in time for several short power outages. Tony and Marshall were punctual and efficient. They completed the project on schedule and instructed us on the operation of the equipment. Should the need for like services ever occur in the future we would definitely use them again.

Tony and Marshall walked this first-time homeowner through the entire process of purchasing a whole home backup generator. They explained the options, the product differences, and how the installation would proceed. I gave them a long lead time (which they appreciated) and was impressed with the communication through to completion. I received a recommendation from them on propane providers (I required new service). The propane contractors gave Tony and Marshall high praise without being asked. I would recommend these guys to anyone requiring a generator. Top notch service and just really nice guys.

Response by SciFiHomes, Inc.: Our main Standby Generator Brand is Cummins Power Generation. It's overall installed cost is only $50 more then a similarly specified Generac or Briggs & Stratton Standby Generator. And when you compare and see Cummins Power Generation having the best warranty, best fuel efficiency, Quietest Brand - 62db vs. Generac 67db vs. Briggs/Kohler 69db, able to control the generator from inside the home with the hardwired keypad and rarely requiring being dug out from tree leaves or snow (since it has a "working lid - intakes and exhausts thru the lid)" The Cummins Power Generation Brand are the best Standby Generators on the Market.

This is a first rate company. I talked to the "big box" stores and was not impressed at all. Sci-Fi was very informative,polite, and professional. I would definitely choose them again.

The gentlemen called back within minutes of requesting information. They set a day and time to come look at our needs for a generator, came on and at the expected day and time, answered our many questions, set quotes for all three generators they sell, then gave us an estimate of when they would be available to complete an installation. The work was completed in a timely manner and was very neatly completed. We were very pleased with the completed work and training we were given.

They came out and had the project pretty much done in a day. They worked with the power company and inspector to schedule all appointments. The power company pulled the meter and they had them back by that afternoon and the power was back on. They were friendly and knowledgeable about the generator. The work is neat and clean and looks professionally done. They gave me a refresher on how the generator worked and they will even come back for the annual maintenance.....for a cost of course.

The owners/technicians at Scifi Homes exceeded my expectations for customer care, service, pricing, installation, and overall friendliness. Their prmary focus was on understanding my needs and ensuring a quality installation. Not only did they educate me on the various types and models of generators, they gave me an understanding of the operations and requirements for each so that I could make an informed decision on my purchase. They are expert advisors and top notch electricians. I would recommend Tony and Marshall of SCIFIHOMES to anyone wanting to install a whole house generator.

They were very accomodating with the schedule, very thorough with teaching/educating us how the system works, and honest when asked which system they preferred. I appreciated their attention to detail and their overall helpful attitude. I have already recommended them to several people. They also cleaned up after themselves!!!!
