A whole-home generator can provide power for your St. Charles, Louisiana, home after a severe storm or another emergency. It can produce power for essential medical equipment, household appliances, and your HVAC system. Unlike a portable generator, a whole-home generator is permanently installed on a concrete pad in your yard. It’s connected directly to your home’s electrical panel and powered by natural gas, propane, or diesel. A whole-home generator starts automatically to protect your home and keep you and your family comfortable.
An Automatic Start
A whole-home generator starts automatically when you lose power, even if you’re away from home. It also keeps you from having to go outside in bad weather to set up a portable generator. With most portable models, you’ll have to connect appliances to the generator with extension cords, and most of your home will still be without power. A whole-home generator can power your entire home.
Protecting Your Home
A whole-home generator keeps your HVAC system and sump pump working, preventing damage to your home from mold, flooding, or frozen pipes. It also keeps the refrigerator and freezer working, so you won’t have to pay to replace perishable food or refrigerated medications. Many insurance companies give people with whole-home generators a discount on their homeowners’ insurance because of the extra protection they offer.
With a whole-home generator, you can keep your heater or air conditioner working during a power outage. This prevents health problems from conditions that are too hot or too cold, especially for elderly people. Whole-home generators are quieter than portable generators as well. A generator can keep your TV and your computer working so that you and your family can enjoy some entertainment and stay up to date on the weather. If you work from home, you won’t lose money because of a power outage.
