Heavy snow, extreme cold, sleet and ice, and near-blinding blizzards may all be part of winter, but being unprepared for them shouldn’t be. Winter storms can cause extended power outages and hazardous travel conditions. Access to fuel and emergency and medical services may be limited once a severe storm hits a region making standby generators a necessity.
An ideal way for homeowners to prepare for a power outage is to install a standby generator system. Fueled by liquid propane or natural gas, standby generators automatically keep the power on when a home’s primary power source goes out, allowing homeowners to run appliances like air conditioners, heaters, refrigerators, sump pumps, clothes washers/dryers and lights.
