The advantages of a propane whole-house backup generator

Power outages can happen any time of the year here in Southern Maryland and for a wide range of reasons, such as summer thunderstorms, tropical storms or hurricanes, ice storms, nor’easter coastal winter storms, traffic accidents taking down poles and power lines, or a failure in your local electric utility’s infrastructure.

Some power outages can last less than an hour and are inconvenient at worst. Some, however, can last for days, especially if they are related to widespread severe weather that mean utility crews may not be able to restore power for days if not weeks. That can be uncomfortable and dangerous.

Here are five reasons why having Taylor Gas install a Generac propane whole-house backup generator at your home makes sense.

  1. Keep your family safe. A propane whole-house generator keeps life-saving medical equipment like home dialysis, CPAPs, and electric wheelchairs going. Your house security system will stay on as well.
  2. Keep your property from getting damaged. If your power happens to go out, that also means your sump pump isn’t working. Consequently, you’re at a much higher risk for flooding in your basement- which could amount to thousands of dollars in damages. Not to mention the sentimental items stored down there like holiday decorations and family mementoes would be ruined as well. A propane whole-house generator keeps the sump pump running so your basement stays dry. 
  3. Keep comfortable. A propane whole-house backup generator is a failsafe option to keep your heating system or air conditioning running if you lose power.
  4. Keep your food safely cold. You could have hundreds of dollars’ worth of food in your fridge and freezer. And if you have a standalone freezer for fishing, hunting, freezing vegetables from your garden, or warehouse shopping, that figure can soar. Food in a refrigerator can begin to spoil in as little as four hours. A propane whole-house generator will keep your food at a safe temperature. It also powers appliances like your multicooker, coffeemaker, air fryer, and slow cooker so you don’t have to subsist on cold food until the power comes back on.
  5. Keep connected with the outside world. A propane whole-house backup generator powers your electronics so that you can stay in touch with family and local authorities during a crisis, work remotely, and allow the kids access to games, TV, and their laptops.

Don’t let another winter go by without the security and comfort of a Generac propane whole-house backup generator! Contact Taylor Gas today to get started on installing one at your home.
