Get A Propane Back-up Generator, Don’t Trust The Electric Grid!

Date: April 5, 2021

generator options tennesseeThe fragile electric infrastructure in this country has failed us time and again, causing massive disruption, frustration, and discomfort. We all followed with sadness the tragic, widespread energy disaster that occurred in Texas last winter. And we’ve all experienced a number of uncomfortable power outages in Tennessee over the years as well.

In preparation, some folks keep gasoline-powered portable generators in their garage for power outage emergencies. But these units have the capacity to deliver only a limited amount of power. They can also be dangerous if not vented properly.

On the other hand, a whole-house backup propane generator allows you to enjoy all the comforts of home and keeps you safe when power is disrupted. With a propane-powered standby generator, your power will restart automatically within seconds after an outage, and it will stay on until power is restored – all without the hassles or carbon monoxide dangers that come with using portable gasoline generators.

Permanently installed–similar to an outdoor A/C unit–and supplied by a propane tank–propane generators are available in a variety of capacities to fit the needs of any size home in Tennessee.

Why A Whole-House Propane Generator?

Protect Your Comfort

With a propane whole-house backup generator, you’ll get through a summer outage with your air conditioning keeping the house cool. If you lose power in the winter, your home will stay at a safe, warm temperature so you’ll be comfortable.

Protect Your Loved Ones

Is there someone in your home who relies on medical equipment such as oxygen, home dialysis, or an electric wheelchair? A propane whole-house backup generator keeps their vital equipment running.

Protect Your Food

Some of the foods in your refrigerator can begin to spoil in just a few hours after the power goes out. You could end up throwing out hundreds of dollars’ worth of food–from your refrigerator and freezer–without a propane whole-house backup generator.

Protect Your Electronics

A backup generator powers your laptop, phone, TV, gaming system and more. You can work safely from home; you and your family will stay entertained, and you can stay connected with loved ones and the world outside as you await updates on restored power.

If you don’t have a propane generator yet and would like to explore your options, reach out to your propane company. If they don’t install generators, they can probably refer you to someone who does.
