Why You Should Install A Gas Generator: 4 Reasons

Dixon Energy installs quality Honeywell whole-house generators

But whether we’re dealing with harsh winter weather or summer storms, homes in Morris, Somerset, Union and southern Sussex Counties are vulnerable to power outages. After Superstorm Sandy, we all know the hassle, expense and potential danger that comes when the power goes out.

That’s why Dixon Energy installs reliable, safe Honeywell gas whole-house backup generators. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your family and home will be kept safe and comfortable, especially if the power’s out for a while. We offer a variety of sizes, so you’ll easily find the right one for your home.

We have four reasons that installing a gas whole-house backup generator is a good investment:

Protect your home

If you have a sump pump in your home, it doesn’t run when the power is out. Your basement may flood, causing hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in damage. And if you store cherished things like photos or holiday decorations in your basement, they may be ruined. A gas backup generator keeps the sump pump running to help your basement stay dry.

Protect your family

A home security system doesn’t keep your home secure if it’s not working. A gas whole-house backup generator will keep your security system running so you and your loved ones stay safe. A gas backup generator is also essential if anyone in your home relies on electricity for medical equipment such as electric wheelchairs or home dialysis.

Protect your food

Think of all of the food you have in your refrigerator and freezer (or freezers). Think about all the money you spent on that food. Now imagine all of that food (and money) going in the trash if a power outage lasts more than a day or two. A gas whole-house backup generator will keep your food safely cold. And if you have an electric stove, you can cook, too.

Protect your connections

If you work from home, either all the time or temporarily because of conditions outside, you need things like a computer, a, smartphone and a Wi-Fi connection to do your work and connect with your office. Gas whole-house backup generators keep your electronics on and charged, so you can keep in touch not just with work, but with emergency services, family and friends.

A gas whole-house backup generator can be powered by natural gas or propane. You won’t have to rely on gasoline, which doesn’t keep the generator running for very long, and which can degrade over time and may be difficult to get.

Dixon Energy’s trained, experienced service technicians will safely and expertly install your new generator. And we offer great financing!
