We’ve already had a taste of wicked winter weather here in Fairfield County and southwestern Connecticut.
And that’s likely just the beginning of what’s to come. Winter storms can also bring power outages that can last for days. That’s why more and more people are turning to propane whole-house backup generators.
We’re not talking about the portable generators you get at the home improvement store. Propane whole-house backup generators are permanently installed at your home, supplied by an above-ground or underground propane tank. They automatically start moments after the power goes out.
Propane doesn’t degrade over time, as gasoline does. No worries about over-filling a tank or spills as you have with a portable generator.
Another advantage of propane whole-house backup generators is that you can choose the size you need for your home, whether it’s just keeping the lights on, the food in the fridge and freezer cold, and making sure the phones and tablets are charged, or if you have more energy needs such as electronics if you work remotely or if someone in your home relies on medical equipment such as electric wheelchairs.
To have that security of power when you need it, you must take care of your generator so it will do the job when the power goes out. We have your propane whole-house backup generator to-do list:
