What Home Generators Offer

If you’re wondering about what a propane whole-house backup generator can do for your home, here are five benefits they offer.

Property Protection

When the power goes out, your home’s security system can run on a backup battery for a while. But once that battery is drained, your security system doesn’t work. A propane whole-house backup generator keeps the security system operational.

Staying Safe

With the lights on, you don’t have to worry about stumbling and falling in the dark. If someone in your home uses medical equipment such as oxygen, home dialysis, or an electric wheelchair, you don’t have to worry about a power outage creating a medical emergency.

Another safety benefit is that, unlike portable generators, you don’t have to go outdoors in hazardous conditions to start them. Your generator will kick on automatically when the power goes out.

Staying Comfortable

Whether the power outage happens in the heat of summer or the chill of winter, your propane whole-house backup generator will power your home’s HVAC system so you won’t be sweating or freezing.

Keeping Connected

Power outages that last more than a few hours can cut you off from the outside world because smartphones, laptops, and tablets eventually run out of battery power. A propane whole-house backup generator powers your electronics and your WiFi, so you can be in touch with loved ones or local authorities and stay entertained while waiting for the power to come back.

Saving Money

Think about all the food in your refrigerator and freezer right now. Now think about how much that food costs. When the power goes out, the clock starts ticking on the safety of that food. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, some foods can start to go bad in as little as four hours.

If the power outage is more than a day or two, you could be looking at hundreds of dollars in food going in the trash.

But when you have a propane whole-house backup generator, your food is kept safely cold. You’ll also be able to cook using your propane range as well as your small appliances like multicookers and food processors.
