Is Your Home Ready for Storm Season?

Be Protected When Extreme Weather Strikes

All you have to do is turn on the news to see another American neighborhood ravaged by extreme weather. Whether it’s a snowstorm, thunderstorm, or a hurricane, these storms often leave power outages in their wake. Those outages often last more than hours. They can last days or even weeks.

Fortunately, even if your neighborhood goes dark, there’s a way to keep the lights on (and the fridge, and the television, and the home security system, and the AC, and every other appliance your family relies on and takes comfort from). It’s called a whole-house generator. And it does just what it sounds like it does, it provides all the power your whole home needs to never miss a beat (well, maybe a few seconds) when there’s a power outage.

Safety & Peace of Mind

Black Bear Fuel Oil, Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning is a family-owned and operated company. Our family puts your family’s safety at the forefront of everything we do. As part of our commitment to helping you keep your loved ones safe during and following extreme weather events, we provide propane generator installation in and around Sullivan County.

When bad weather strikes, whole-house generators offer the ultimate peace of mind. With a whole-house generator, your home is prepared for storm season and the power outages that are likely to come with it.

Losing power is more than an inconvenience. It can affect your health and safety. In addition to putting you and your family in the dark, it also affects your ability to refrigerate or freeze your food, bathe, cook, secure your home, and stay cool enough. Each day without power becomes exponentially more uncomfortable and then dangerous, especially if the outdoor temperatures reach extreme highs.

Generac Whole-House Backup Generators

Whole-house generators are no longer a luxury. At Black Bear, we consider them a necessity. And we’re proud to offer Genarac whole-house backup generators to our clients. These generators allow you to enjoy all the comforts of your home when the power goes out.

Genarec generators are powered by propane and connected to your home’s electrical and HVAC equipment. Within seconds of an outage, your generator will power up automatically. So, you’ll experience a relatively seamless transition to backup power.

Whole-House Generator Benefits

Less than one minute after an outage, your generator will kick in to power your entire HVAC system and all your electrical appliances. Having a whole-house generator will keep the lights on. It will also keep you and your family comfortable, save you money, and protect you and your home in the following ways:
1. Preserve your food. Your fridge and freezer will still be working, so will your stove and oven. No need to lose money on spoiled food.
2. Avoid water damage. You’ll still be able to use your electric-powered sump-pump and avoid expensive water damage in the event of flooding.
3. Use medical devices. Medical equipment that requires electricity can remain up and running with a whole-house generator in operation.
4. Maintain home security. Your home security system will continue to protect you and your family.
5. Remain connected. You’ll retain the ability to keep your electronic devices charged and connected.
6. Stay comfortable. Your generator will make sure your home’s AC continues to keep you cool on hot days.
