What Hurricanes and Blizzards Mean for Your Home
When New Jersey thinks of Hurricane Sandy, we are most likely to think of the devastation from floods, wind, and rain. However, many more people were impacted by power outages during that time period than were impacted by flooding or wind damage. In fact, power outages are actually a fairly common problem for New Jersey and much of the East Coast. Our power grid is overburdened and is not capable of dealing with high-demand times that occur during heat waves. We are also vulnerable to power loss during blizzards in the winter time. This may have led you to consider installing a generator. The home comfort experts at First Choice Heating and Cooling would be happy to help you consider whether a generator is right for you.
Generac was the innovator in home backup generators and is currently the number one selling brand of home backup generators. That is because Generac has ensured seamless operation of their generator systems and stands by their products with 24/7/365 customer support, so that customers always have access to experts who can help them in the event of a power outage.
The ease of use is another advantage of Generac generators. Instead of being fueled by gas, these generators are fueled by existing natural gas or LP fuel supplies, so that they are always fueled and ready to go in the event of a power failure. They are automatic. This means that even if you are away from home, if the power fails, your generator will begin automatically. Therefore, anything vulnerable that requires electricity for protection, such as refrigerated goods, will be protected. The generator delivers power directly into the home’s electrical panel, where you can choose what it powers. The size of the backup generator you choose determines how much of your home you can power on alternative sources until regular power is restored, but it is possible to completely replace your power supply.
Not every home needs a generator.
We are happy to sell you a generator system, but one reason that our customers trust us is that we will help you honestly evaluate your need for a generator. Our technicians will talk to you about the age and health conditions of the people in your home, the cost of the system, how easy it is for you to go to another location when a power outage occurs, and other factors that can and should impact your decision to have a generator installed. We have built a reputation on our customer-first customer service policies and our promise is to treat you like we want to be treated.
