Benefits of Propane Generators
Don’t get left in the dark during the next storm! We have seen an increase of strong storms here in the Delaware Valley with power outages affecting a growing number of people each year. Gasoline-powered portable generators are noisy and not suitable for a long-term outage.
Propane generators are powerful and a smart investment in maintaining safety and comfort in your home.
• Propane Generators are easy to start
After a power interruption, it only takes a connected propane-powered generator 10 seconds to start automatically. Unlike gasoline and diesel, propane fuel won’t degrade over time.
• Powers your home up to four days
A 7kW standby generator drawing from two 120-gallon propane tanks will provide enough electricity to power your home for up to five days. Propane-powered generator to typically burns 2-3 gallons per hour. Note that a propane tank is considered “full” at 80 percent water capacity, a full 120-gallon tank contains 96 gallons of propane. That means a 120-gallon tank that only powers a home’s propane generator can last 4 days.
• Quieter than other generators
Propane generators are quiet – most units produce as little as 60 decibels of noise.
