Six Reasons to Have a Whole House Propane Generator

Fuse box power outage

It seems like every time we turn on the news these days, we hear about some kind of extreme weather – high winds, driving rains, floods and more – wreaking havoc. But the aftermath of these bouts of weather are often just as challenging as the storm itself, as people wait for days or even weeks for their power to be restored.

But with an automatic standby generator, you can rest assured that power is only seconds away in the event of an outage.

A whole house backup power solution

A standby generator isn’t a portable generator like the pull start models on wheels you have probably seen. A standby generator is a permanent fixture that’s installed outside your home (it looks like a central air conditioning unit with a lid on it) that turns on automatically less than a minute after the grid goes down.

Because it’s much more powerful than a portable generator, it does a lot more than simply keep the lights on: in fact, depending on the size of the unit, it can power just about any home comfort system.

That means your standby generator will:

  1. Protect your home – A generator will keep your sump pump up and running.
  2. Preserve your food – Generators can keep hundreds of dollars of food from spoiling – and keep your stove and oven working, too.
  3. Power your medical devices – A whole house generator can literally be a lifesaver, keeping emergency medical equipment online and working.
  4. Keep your valuables safe – With a whole house generator, home security systems will keep protecting your valuables.
  5. Help you stay connected – Battery operated radios, laptops, tablets and cellphones need to be recharged. A generator will help keep you connected.
  6. Keep you comfortable – A whole house generator will keep your air conditioner and dehumidifier running in the hot months, and if you run an electric heater in the winter, it will keep you warm, too.

For all these reasons plus peace of mind in any weather, nothing beats an automatic standby generator – especially when it’s installed by the pros at Porco Energy.
