Why Choose a Propane Generator?
Propane generators are as reliable and easy to use as the old-fashioned gas generators but they offer additional benefits. These benefits include lower cost, greater environmental efficacy, and more convenient fuel storage. As a result of those reasons, propane generators have become a more popular product for buyers.
Propane generators are more reliable in emergencies. They offer homeowners, business owners, and anyone with the need for backup electricity the peace of mind that their needs will be met despite power loss. Moreover, propane is easily stored for lengthy periods of time—it has an unlimited shelf life—so that it’s ready on a moment’s notice. Even if the generator has not run in some time, it will be clean and ready to go when it’s needed.
Propane is a more environmentally-friendly option: it is a clean burning fuel that produces far less carbon monoxide than other fuels, particularly gas. While proper ventilation is still important, propane is overall safer and cleaner. Additionally, propane is stored in closed tanks to avoid spills and provided added safety.
Propane is also affordable. It’s readily available everywhere: hardware and home supply stores, gas stations, and propane suppliers. The likelihood of running out and not being able to replace it is non-existent.
