Why Choose a Propane Generator?

With all of the options available in terms of residential generators, it is important that you understand the pros and cons of different systems. There is no such thing as an ideal generator for everyone, but with a little bit of research and some careful consideration you can certainly find which is ideal for you. Many homeowners choose to use a propane generator due to the fact that propane has a very long shelf life, which is handy considering you won’t be using your generator every day. Plus, you can choose to use either a large storage tank or smaller cylinders, with home delivery being available for larger tanks. The engines of propane generators also tend to work pretty quietly, and there are plenty of very budget friendly models out there. If you think that a propane generator in is right for you, give us a call today.

Portable vs. Permanent Propane Generators in CT

It is necessary that you understand the distinction between a portable generator and a permanent, standby or automatic backup system. Backup generators are a great investment and very beneficial in certain scenarios. They are wired directly into your home’s electrical system, and will come on automatically in the event of a power outage (granted that they are outfitted with an automatic transfer switch). By turning on the circuits you wish to run, you can have power flowing throughout your home again with the flip of a switch. This is quite different from the way in which a portable generator works.

Portable propane generators have their uses, but they are not appropriate as a solution for backing up your entire household. Their portability makes them easily maneuverable, so they can be used in a multitude of situations. That being said, you must be careful to never use a portable generator in an enclosed area, and you will need to run extension cords to this type of generator so that you can plug in appliances directly. You will also have to refuel it manually. A standby generator is permanently installed on your property, and offers more in the way of automatic protection of your comfort and convenience. If you are shopping around for a propane generator in Monroe, New Fairfield, West Hartford, Simsbury, Meriden, Manchester, Milford or nearby Connecticut, let the technicians at Harrington Electric help ensure that you get the right one for your needs and usage habits. We offer many types of generators and are sure to find the right fit for you.
