Benefits of a Whole Home Generator
Whole home generators are designed to power an entire household for an extended period. They provide enough electricity to operate the necessities inside your home for days. While most power outages last only a few hours, we are seeing a greater incidence of people across the country being without power for days and even weeks. Climate changes mean that we are having a higher number of severe storms that can knock out power for miles. Portable generators can provide some relief, but not for long, especially if you have medical equipment or rely on heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration.
Backup generators are an excellent way to protect your family from the dangers associated with losing power. If you want to install a backup generator on your residential or commercial property, you can count on S&S Mechanical Contractors to get the job done right.
