A standby generator for your home is such a smart investment. While some of your neighbors remain in the dark when the power gets knocked out, a generator lets you enjoy your heating and cooling, lighting, refrigeration and other essentials, including sump pumps, security systems and medical equipment. And don’t forget about having the power to charge all the phones in the family!
If you’re ready to purchase a generator, think about a propane gas generator first. Propane offers advantages that other fuel sources can’t match.
- Unlike gasoline or diesel, propane can be delivered easily and stored safely on your property. During extended power outages, gasoline and diesel may be hard to get.
- Propane can also be stored for an unlimited amount of time; gasoline and diesel degrades after being in storage awhile.
- A propane generator will start more easily in very cold weather because propane won’t thicken and gel the way fuel oil does.
- Propane generators produce significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions than diesel and gasoline generators.
Permanently installed and supplied by an aboveground or underground tank, your propane gas generator will start automatically within seconds of the power going out. Propane gas generators are available in a variety of capacities to fit the needs of any size home in Michigan.
