No power? No PROBLEM!
Severe storms can occasionally result in prolonged power outages here in Georgia. If your home is equipped with a natural gas stove, water heater or gas logs, you’ll be able to cook, have a hot bath and keep warm – even if the power is out. But what about home appliances or medical equipment needing electricity to operate?
If minutes, not to mention hours or days, without electricity are crucial to you, consider installing a natural gas standby generator. Here are four things you should know:
1) IT’S A RELIABLE BACKUP.
A stationary standby generator is permanently connected to your natural gas line and your home’s electrical panel. It can provide uninterrupted backup in the event of an electricity outage.
2) POWER IS RESTORED QUICKLY.
Within seconds of an electrical outage, a standby generator equipped with an automatic transfer switch automatically starts and restores power. It automatically shuts down and reconnects your house to the grid when electric service is restored.
3) YOU DON’T HAVE TO REFUEL.
Adequate fuel is never a concern with a generator fueled by the same underground pipelines that bring natural gas to your home.
4) INSTALLATION IS NOT A DIY PROJECT.
You’ll need to hire a qualified installer to help you assess both your load needs and the logistics of installing a standby generator outside your home. A generator is an important investment for protecting your home and family during power outages. If a generator is in your future, schedule installation now before storm season arrives.
