The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season has been one for the record books.
On average, there are only two named storms by early August. This year? There were nine before the first week of August had ended. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that 2020 is setting up to be an “extremely active” year for hurricanes and tropical storms. There could be as many as 25 named storms by the end of hurricane season!
And many of those storms could have Southern Maryland in their path.
A year like this, it makes more sense than ever to have a propane whole-house standby generator installed at your home! Taylor Gas sells top-quality Generac generators and partners with PowerTech Electric for proper, safe installation.
Think about all the essential ways you use power in your home, and all the ways a whole-house generator can keep your family and home safe.
A propane whole-house generator keeps critical medical equipment like home dialysis and electric wheelchairs powered. Your home security system will also stay on.
If you have a sump pump in your basement, a power outage can lead to flooding during a tropical storm or hurricane, which can cause thousands of dollars in damage and destroy precious items stored down there. A whole-house generator keeps the sump pump running.
Did you know that perishable food in your refrigerator and freezer can begin to spoil in four hours? Think about all the food you have. A days-long power outage means a lot of that food, and the money you spent on it, will be going in the garbage.
A propane whole-house backup generator will keep your refrigerator on, and other kitchen appliances like toaster ovens and multicookers.
You will also be able to keep electronics charged. You can use your phones to stay informed about conditions in your area, and keep in contact with loved ones. You will be able to work remotely. And the TV and gaming systems will be powered to keep the kids entertained.
