Ice storms, straight-line winds, severe thunderstorms, and intense heat can all lead to widespread power outages in the Louisville, KY area. Without power, you can’t work from home, prepare food, or even maintain indoor comfort. With a whole-home generator and our professional installation services, you can keep the power on and stay healthy and safe no matter what nature has in store.
Electrical company repair crews may take days or even weeks to restore power after severe weather. The food in your refrigerator starts to spoil within four hours of temperatures higher than 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Your heating and cooling system also requires electricity. With a whole-home generator, you can keep your refrigerator, furnace, heat pump or air conditioner working. You’ll stay comfortable no matter how long the power outage lasts.
Whole-home generators keep your household safer than other temporary power sources. Portable generators pose a safety hazard if they tip over and spill their fuel. The cords they use present a tripping hazard. With a whole-home generator, the entire unit is outside. You don’t have to worry about cords, tipping, or keeping children or pets away from the unit. Professional installation of whole-house generators ensures that their exhaust fumes safely ventilate away from your home, notes the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
Nobody wants to lose all their food or deal with burst pipes in the aftermath of a power outage. Buying ice or trying to find an open restaurant would add to your expenses when your home has no power. If you had to leave your home and stay in a hotel, this would be an additional expense. With a whole-home generator, you keep the power on and can shelter in place with your pets. You’ll also have peace of mind knowing that your home is secure.
