The fragile electric infrastructure in this country has failed us time and again, causing massive disruption, frustration, and discomfort. Georgia residents are no strangers to prolonged power outages.
In preparation, some folks keep gasoline-powered portable generators in their garage for power outage emergencies. But these units have the capacity to deliver only a limited amount of power. They can also be dangerous if not vented properly.
Propane generators are a preferred choice because stored propane does not degrade over time like gasoline does. Propane’s fuel supply is more stable and reliable and you don’t have to worry about spillage during the refueling process.
With a propane-powered standby generator, your power will restart automatically within seconds after an outage, and it will stay on until power is restored.
Permanently installed–similar to an outdoor A/C unit–and supplied by a propane tank–propane generators are available in a variety of capacities to fit the needs of any size home in Georgia.
With a propane whole-house backup generator, you’ll get through a summer outage with your air conditioning keeping the house cool. If you lose power in the winter, your home will stay at a safe, warm temperature so you’ll be comfortable.
Is there someone in your home who relies on medical equipment such as oxygen, home dialysis, or an electric wheelchair? A propane whole-house backup generator keeps their vital equipment running.
Some of the foods in your refrigerator can begin to spoil just a few hours after the power goes out. You could end up throwing out hundreds of dollars’ worth of food–from your refrigerator and freezer–without a propane whole-house backup generator.
A backup generator powers your laptop, phone, TV, gaming system and more. You can work safely from home; you and your family will stay entertained, and you can stay connected with loved ones and the world outside as you await updates on restored power.
If you don’t have a propane generator yet and would like to explore your options, reach out to your propane company. If they don’t install generators, they can probably refer you to someone who does.
