Home Stand-By Generators

Mid-Atlantic homeowners never again need to fear extended blackouts. Home stand-by generators have never been more affordable, efficient, or technologically sophisticated. Also known as standby generators, these devices are capable of supplying residential energy for days on end.

Benefits of Home Stand-By Generators

When compared to portable generators (or no generator, as the case may be), home stand-by generators offer a number of distinct advantages to homeowners. These include:

  • Complete Automation: These devices will automatically activate to power your home during blackouts and power outages. Nobody even has to be at home for it to activate.
  • Fully Encased: The casing conveniently can lower the noise output of the generator by between 13-18 dBA — think 67 dBA instead of the 80 dBA level of portable generators.
  • Permanent Wiring: Your home stand-by generator is permanently wired to your home’s electric panel. That means you won’t be tripping over extension cords.
  • Peace of Mind: With a standby generator, your power is always on and home is always protected. It can backup the entire home or just essential systems like your refrigerator, alarm system, or medical equipment.

Gas Generators vs Propane Generators

generators-generacWhether you purchase a gas generator or a propane generator, we feel both options are equally viable and convenient for Mid-Atlantic homeowners. Both fuel types have their own pluses and minuses, though.

Gas generators have a number of advantages. Perhaps the best feature is that fuel for these generators is easy to obtain. However, this fuel also tends to go quickly during emergencies due its versatility. This fuel also tends to have a relatively short shelf life of approximately 12 months.

By contrast, propane generators run on a clean-burning fuel that offers a relatively long shelf life. The fuel systems for these generators are more complicated, and they’re a little more expensive to operate. Either way, the choice really boils down to your personal preference and needs.
