Whole-House Generator Installation

Give yourself peace of mind

generators new yorkThere are a lot of things that could cause you to lose power in your home. Extreme weather is becoming increasingly common. The electric grid is imperfect and often overtaxed. Perhaps a falling tree or a car accident takes down the power line your home depends on.

At Downey Energy, we want to help you make sure that no matter what causes your home or neighborhood to go dark, you have the equipment to keep the lights on (and the fridge running, and your electronics charged).

Extreme weather events and our county’s overtaxed power-grid bring enough worries. Give yourself peace of mind and prepare your Hudson Valley home for the unexpected by investing in a whole-house generator.

At Downey Energy, we sell and install Generac whole-house generators. You can use one of these generators for as little or as much power as you need. If you just want to keep the lights on and the fridge running, a whole-house generator can handle that. If you also need to keep all your electronics going so you can work from home, a whole-house generator can handle that too. Need to keep your security system or medical equipment up and running? A Generac whole-house generator can do all of the above and more.

Whole-house generators and their benefits

Whole-house generators keep your house up and running with minimal interruption. Less than one minute after the power goes out, your generator can start powering your HVAC system and all your home’s electrical appliances. Having a whole-house generator means you’ll be able to do all of the following:

  1. Preserve your food. Your fridge and freezer will keep running, so will your stove and oven. That’s money saved because no food will go to waste.
  2. Avoid water damage. If there’s flooding because of a storm, you’ll avoid expensive water damage because you’ll be able to use your electric-powered sump-pump.
  3. Avoid frozen pipes. Your home’s heating system will continue to run, so you’ll avoid the stress and expense of frozen or burst pipes if the power goes out on a frigid day.
  4. Keep your family safe. Your home security system will continue to protect your loved ones and valuables.
  5. Stay connected. You’ll still be able to power all of your important electronic devices, so you can stay connected, informed, and entertained.
  6. Stay comfortable. Even a gas furnace or boiler needs electricity for certain components. A whole-house generator means you can keep your home a comfortable temperature no matter what the weather is like outside.

How much is enough?

It’s a good idea to always have enough propane on hand to run your generator for one week. Whenever you need more propane, contact Downey Energy to schedule your next propane delivery or sign up for automatic delivery.
