Reasons to Buy a Propane Generator for Your North Carolina Home

If you were one of the lucky ones, you managed to keep your power on throughout the incredible winter weather we experienced this year. But if you were left in the dark at some point, you’ll probably agree that an emergency back-up propane generator is one of the best investments you can make in your North Carolina home.

Let’s face it: the weather has gotten really erratic and severe in recent years—a big reason why we’ve seen growing demand for generators—a product that was once considered a luxury item for a home. Consider all the worries that a generator can take away.

  • Family: If anyone in your family relies on electricity for medical equipment, a back-up generator truly is a must have. It will also keep your A/C and indoor air quality equipment running on hot and humid summer nights, and your heating systems running when it’s dangerously cold.
  • Property: A whole house generator won’t only keep your lights on, it will also keep your sump pump working to prevent flood damage and keep your pipes from freezing in the winter.
  • Valuables: A back-up generator will keep home security systems up and running to protect your possessions, and your refrigerators and freezers on to keep food fresh.

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 – all without the hassles and noise associated with using portable gasoline generators.

If you already have a generator, make sure you have enough fuel to run it and keep it operating properly with regular maintenance service.

Bottom line: severe weather power outages are dangerous, and they happen all year long. (Before you know it, we’ll be talking about the hurricane season). Please contact your propane company if you would like to learn which backup propane generator might be best for your home.
