Why You Should Buy a Generator This Spring

San Angelo, TX gets its fair share of severe weather in the form of hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, and lightning storms. These weather events can leave you without power, and in some cases, it could be days or weeks before the power is restored. You can avoid the discomfort and inconvenience of power outages by installing a whole-home generator. Spring just happens to be the best time to make this investment. Here are some reasons to buy a generator this spring.

Prepares You for the Hurricane Season Ahead

Here in Texas, hurricane season runs from June through November. Hurricane events commonly take out power for days to weeks. You can make the situation a lot less stressful by having a whole-home generator installed in early spring.

Depending on your priorities and budget, a whole-home generator can power your entire house, including all your lights and security system, or just certain circuits like those that power your HVAC system and appliances. If you live in a rural area and your water supply is from a private well, you will need power to access your water supply. You can keep your family and home secure with our whole-home generator installation.

Beats the Rush

In general, early spring tends to be slower for HVAC companies, meaning they can assist you quickly with your generator installation. Once the storm season hits, electricians are incredibly busy and could be booked for weeks. Get ahead of the game by scheduling your generator consultation early.

Automatically Supplies Power

Whole-home generators are installed and hooked up directly to your house. When there is a power outage, the generator will sense it and automatically come on to provide power to your home. When the power is restored, the unit will automatically turn off. The only thing you need to do is make sure the unit has a fuel supply and receives annual maintenance.

Generators come in models that run on a number of different fuel options, with propane and natural gas being the most common. Propane is a popular choice because you can have a dedicated tank on your property ready to go. If the area you live in has municipal gas lines installed, a natural gas hookup is probably the most economical choice. You can also find generators that run on diesel or gasoline.
