When weather emergencies and blackouts arise, a propane-powered whole-home generator is a powerful thing to have on your side. Power outages are very common throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, and with our aging electrical grid, they’re only becoming more frequent. And extreme weather events like Hurricane Sandy can leave homeowners without essential services for days on end.
Fortunately, a propane-powered generator is an excellent standby power source that’s ready to roll whenever you need it. These generators work automatically — as soon as your home loses power, they switch on immediately. They also offer enormous benefits to homeowners by keeping food from spoiling, preventing frozen pipes, and averting flooded basements (among other things).
Propane itself also is an excellent fuel source for these generators. It can be stored either aboveground or underground, and it’s much more obtainable than some other fuels during periods of peak demand. This fuel also doesn’t go bad — it can be stored for an indefinite amount of time without going bad.
