Prevent Chaos During a Power Outage
The wind is kicking up and a nasty, powerful storm is expected to hit your neighborhood within minutes. Then it happens. The skies let loose. The trees and electrical lines sway violently. And everything in your house goes dark…and eerily quiet.
How will you prepare dinner? Will the food in the refrigerator and freezer spoil? What about the wash? Hot showers? With the TV and computers out of commission, who will keep the kids occupied? And how will everyone stay comfortable when a house with no power becomes unbearably hot in the summer or bone-chillingly cold in the winter?
You don’t have to worry about problems such as these when your home is equipped with a generator. A generator becomes your best friend during a power outage because it can operate your appliances, electronic devices, lights and heating and cooling system.
Choose Wisely to Power Up Effectively
Frog’s fully trained and experienced technicians can help you choose the generator that’s right for your home and its emergency power needs. Home generators come in two types: portable and stationary. They run on different kinds of fuels, including gasoline, diesel, natural gas, propane and oil. They also come in a wide range of sizes, usually from 1-kilowatt output to 100-kilowatt output.
Here are some of the differences between a portable generator and a stationary generator:
- While a portable generator can be moved from location to location, a stationary generator is permanently installed, similar to a central air conditioning unit, and often rests on a concrete pad.
- A portable generator must be filled with gasoline every few hours. A stationary generator runs on natural gas or propane and hooks up to existing lines.
- A portable generator must be started and stopped manually. A stationary generator starts automatically when the power goes out.
- A portable generator must be connected to appliances using extension cords. A stationary generator is wired to the systems and appliances it will operate.
The team at Frog will help you assess your emergency energy needs and recommend the type and size of generator that will keep your household running smoothly and efficiently, keeping your budget challenges in mind.
