Frequently Asked Questions
Is a generator really necessary?
Yes. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, power outages are lasting longer. The average homeowner will experience 3.5 power interruptions in a two-year period, and even outages lasting fewer than four hours can cost you an average of $1,250, in addition to the emotional toll on your family.
Are propane generators noisy?
While generators have a reputation for being loud, most propane units produce as little as 60 decibels of noise, the same volume as a normal conversation.
How soon does a propane generator kick in after the electricity goes out?
Within only 10 seconds of an outage, a propane generator will kick in to power your home. Additionally, propane units can handle an entire home’s energy needs for days at a time.
Are there advantages of propane generators compared with diesel?
Yes. Compared with diesel, propane has many significant advantages. The indefinite shelf life of propane makes it an ideal fuel for generators, whereas diesel degrades over time and might not be ready when the power goes out. Propane also burns cleaner than diesel and can be stored onsite, either above or below ground, without risk of ground or groundwater contamination. Diesel, on the other hand, has the potential for contamination from spills and leaks that are retained in the soil.
