If you haven’t already discovered this yourself as a homeowner, then you should know—portable generators can be a huge hassle. First off, they can impose a safety risk, running on stored gasoline that poses the opportunity for carbon monoxide poisoning in your living space. They can also be very inefficient, when you consider the cost-fuel perspective. Plus, they’re inconvenient! Weather could very well be the reason you have to turn it on, and that requires you going outside in that bad weather.
Fortunately, we’re not here to sell you a portable generator (that wouldn’t be a very good sales pitch, right?) Instead, we’re here to introduce you to the benefits of a whole-house generator, which is arguable the better and more desirable alternative. Read on as we uncover the benefits of this system and how different it is from a portable unit, and get ready to face any power outage you may experience with confidence that it won’t be a problem in your household.
