A propane generator can be your best friend during a power outage—so why not be prepared the next time the lights go out?
Paraco Gas supports power propane generators for every home and budget—from portable generators for lighter-duty needs to whole-house standby generators that can keep the comforts of home coming even when the grid is down.
Fueled by propane, standby generators are permanently installed units that turn on automatically during a power failure.
They come in many sizes and can power most systems in your home while you’re waiting for the electricity to come back on.
Professional installation is needed for standby generators, since installation requires a permit and compliance with local flood, noise and electrical code.
To learn more about standby generators, see the informative four minute video from “AsktheBuilder.com” host Tim Carter below.
Unlike a standby unit, portable propane generators do not require professional installation. The unit can be moved, making it an ideal solution for home projects and outdoor events.
Portable generators will run between 6 and 8 hours on a tank full of propane or gasoline and power several appliances—but not the whole house, as a standby generator can.
Safety should always be the top concern when operating propane-powered generators. Always read and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines before using your propane generator. For more information, see our Propane Generator Safety page.
