The weather can put residents at risk of extended power losses. Portable generators have their place, but permanent standby generators are a better choice. A standby or whole-house generator provides a lot more power. It is also more convenient than a portable generator, with some models operating automatically. Instead of running on liquid propane, gasoline or diesel, whole-house generators can run on cleaner, less expensive natural gas. Finally, standby generators are safer as they don’t produce combustion fumes. Licensed electricians can install whole-house generators for your home.
