Swannanoa, NC - - June 4, 2014 - Taking the right precautions and planning ahead is especially important this year as families think about how to mitigate the damage of a hurricane affecting their home. An ideal way for homeowners to prepare for a power outage is to install a standby generator system. Fueled by liquid propane or natural gas, standby generators automatically keep the power on when a home’s primary power source goes out, allowing homeowners to run appliances like air conditioners, heaters, refrigerators, sump pumps, clothes washers/dryers and lights.
