Be Safe With A Propane Whole-House Backup Generator

As warmer weather begins to return here in central Maine, we are getting closer to the time of more frequent thunderstorms.

Those thunderstorms can wreak havoc on our homes when they cause power outages. In more widespread, severe storms, it may take days before power is restored in some areas.

You can keep your home, possessions, and loved ones safe with a Generac propane whole-house backup generator expertly installed by AFC. We also provide propane tank installation and reliable propane delivery.

These whole-house generators do much more than the portable ones at the home improvement store. Here’s the security you get with a Generac propane whole-house backup generator.

Keep Your Family Safe

Your home security system will stay powered. If someone in your house has medication that needs refrigeration, they’ll stay at a proper temperature. A propane whole-house backup generator makes sure that medical equipment such as home dialysis or electric wheelchairs have power.

Protect Your Home

If a thunderstorm comes with torrential rain, an inoperable sump pump can lead to a flooded basement, costly damage, and destroyed keepsakes stored down there. But a propane whole-house generator keeps the sump pump running to help keep your basement dry.

Protect Your Food

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, some foods in your refrigerator can begin to go bad in as little as four hours after the power goes out. If the power is out for a day or longer, you could lose hundreds of dollars’ worth of food. And if storm damage has blocked roads, you may not be able to get to a grocery store. A propane whole-house backup generator keeps your food safely cold and also powers your stove, microwave, multicooker, and other appliances so you can cook it.

Stay Connected

Today, keeping electronics powered is essential. A propane whole-house backup generator allows you to keep phones, laptops, and tablets charged so you can stay in touch with local authorities as well as family and other loved ones. If you work remotely, the technology you use like computers and scanners will have power, too.
