A generator is a vital appliance for a Northwest Indiana home and home-based business owners. Without power most people can’t complete even basic tasks including cooking, showering, and eating perishable food. A generator can keep your home, business and possessions safe when the inconvenience of a power outage strikes. When the power goes out, everybody has different priorities with what they want to power in their homes. Some may want to power essential items such as a refrigerator, some lights, television, a microwave. With our area’s strong storms that knock down power lines, coming up with a plan in the event of a power outage is important.
Home Generators are permanently installed, and provide your home with automatic backup power during a power outage. Bundled with an automatic transfer switch, your home standby generator runs off of natural gas or liquid propane.
