Propane Whole House Generator: Be Prepared For Severe Weather

propane genertors new york

With Atlantic Hurricane Season 2020 already underway (and predicted to be a strong one), severe weather can strike at any moment this time of year in Sullivan County – and with that severe weather can come potentially dangerous power outages.

One of the best ways to reduce the impact of severe weather is to invest in a whole house Generac backup generator – a powerful piece of home comfort equipment designed to give you peace of mind.

Powered by propane and connected to your home’s electrical and HVAC equipment, a backup generator looks like the outdoor compressor unit of your central air conditioner. The generator powers up automatically within seconds after the start of an outage, allowing a seamless transition to backup power.

Backup generator benefits

Today’s backup generators do much more than simply keep the lights on. Depending on the size and capacity of the unit, a propane whole house generator could:

  • Protect your property by keeping your sump pump working, potentially preventing hundreds or even thousands of dollars in flood damage.
  • Protect your health by keeping critical medical equipment powered up and running reliably.
  • Preserve your food by preventing spoilage and keeping refrigerators working.
  • Safeguard your valuables by keeping security systems online.
  • Keep you connected by powering outlets to run and charge laptops, tablets, cell phones, radios, and TVs.
  • Keep you comfortable by powering your AC or heating equipment, including your water heater.

Just remember: installing a backup generator is a job for licensed professionals with expertise in plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems, along with local, regional, and federal flood, noise, gas, and electrical codes.
