Propane generators offer families peace of mind during emergency situations by providing a continuous supply of power. Whether it’s a standby power system for your home or office, a backup generator powering the family home through an outage, or portable units powering tools at job sites, propane generators meets the power needs of consumers and businesses alike.They can maintain lighting, air-conditioning, refrigeration, clothes washers/dryers and more so that your lifestyle or business can continue uninterrupted in a power outage.
Propane standby generators provide uninterrupted backup power for days during extended power outages. Unlike portable generators, standby generators are permanently installed on a concrete pad beside your home of building. They’re connected directly to your home’s electrical panel. The higher the generator’s capacity, the more circuits it can power at once. Home Gas can help you determine the size of generator best for your needs based on your requirements to either energize just a few circuits at a time or comfortably power an entire home.
Portable generators that run on propane are always easier to keep in running condition because propane does not degrade over time like gasoline. And unlike gasoline, propane is biodegradable and there’s no chance of spilling when refueling. Portable propane generators also emit fewer carbon dioxide emissions and toxic pollutants than the comparable gasoline-powered portable units. These generators run on the small, portable propane cylinders, which are conveniently available at many of the gas stations on island (SEE 20-LB EXCHANGE LOCATIONS).
