What is a Generator?
A generator is a back-up power unit that runs on propane or natural gas and will feed electricity to your home or property in the event of a power outage. They connect directly into your homes electric panel to safety deliver power without the hassle or danger of an extension cord. These units can be set up to turn on automatically when your home loses power, or manually to be used at your convenience, and are sized to the needs of you and your home.
Why do I need a Generator?
Electricity and power to our home is one of the most helpful conveniences of our modern world, but we sometimes forget that it can go out in a moment. Here in Florida, we get some pretty severe weather. Hurricanes to Lightning storms, we have it all. A lot of these weather conditions come with a high probability that we will lose power at some point during the year, not to mention the man made conditions such as working on power poles, or power company equipment failure. In 2016, Hurricane Hermine caused a power outage to more than 350,000 people in Florida and Georgia alone. You can protect your home, comfort, and assets with the simple installation of a back up Generator. Prompt Electric is your local expert on Generators.
