In Florida, emergencies aren’t all that uncommon. With strong tropical storms and hurricanes threatening residents much of the year, preparation can make all the difference. And one of the best ways to stay prepared for any power outage is with a natural gas generator installation.
It stands to reason that fuel storage is one of the primary concerns for generator ownership. Especially in times of emergency, fuel shortages can create drastic price hikes in most generator fuel sources. But rather than stockpiling the fuel in hopes that you’ve saved enough to outlast the outage, why not stay attached to the source of fuel at all times?
Advantages of Installing Natural Gas Generators
That is the biggest advantage to opting for a natural gas generator installation over all other generator types. Natural gas generators utilize pre-existing natural gas lines, which run through most commercial and residential areas. It’s also a clean, environmentally friendly fuel source and does not fluctuate with events like hurricanes.
If you’ve ever endured a major hurricane in Florida, you’re probably aware of why this is such a significant advantage. People begin pulling out their extra gas tanks and running to the gas pumps weeks beforehand, often creating long lines and even outages. Worse still, price gouging still happens and diesel, gas, and propane costs often skyrocket overnight.
However, natural gas lines are rarely affected by tropical storms and hurricanes because the natural gas lines are located underground. On top of that, they don’t require an oversized fuel storage tank, further adding to the argument that a natural gas generator installation is more eco-friendly since there is no potential for fuel spillages.
In addition, having a natural gas generator installation with an automatic transfer switch can make it to where you don’t have to worry about switching your power sources. An automatic transfer switch will turn the unit on and give you a seamless transition of power after the electricity goes out.
No longer will you have to repeatedly go out and venture through the weather and debris to struggle with turning the generator on or hassling with adding fuel.
