If you're located in the Northeast for more than a few months, you've undoubtedly experienced power failure related to inclement weather. Losing power is more than an inconvenience: it can be dangerous. Using candles can lead to fires, while a lack of refrigeration can lead to food spoiling.
That's why having a generator is so important. At Cannondale Generators, Inc. we specialize in whole house generator installation, so you never have to worry about the consequences of losing power. The generators are connected to natural gas lines, meaning you don't need to get gas for a portable generator before the storm hits.
What Is the Best Whole House Generator?
There are a wide variety of generators on the market, but at Cannondale Generators, Inc., we only carry the best. Models such as Kohler, Generac, and Cummins are renowned in the industry for their reliability and endurance, so contact us today and see which one might be right for you. We offer the best options for your money, providing a great deal of value to your home.
When you're looking at generators, you might wonder why a whole home generator is better than a portable generator. First of all, with a whole home generator, you don't have to worry about picking and choosing which appliances or entertainment systems to run. The whole home generator also lasts longer, typically days as opposed to the few hours that a portable generator might offer you without adding more gasoline.
With a standby, whole home generator, you don't have to worry about whether or not you're home to switch the generator on - it does so automatically when it detects a power failure. A standby generator tends to be safer in its operation, as well, as a portable generator emits gas fumes during its operation. These can only be used in well-ventilated, open spaces, which isn't always possible in a severe weather situation.
Does a Whole House Generator Add Value to Your Home?
According to Consumer Reports, a whole house generator installation can add significant value to your house, up to a 150% return on investment. Installing a generator typically increases your home value in the neighborhood of 3 to 5%. If you spend $10,000 on your generator, that means your home value could increase up to $15,000, which isn't too shabby.
In addition to the monetary value it adds, installing a whole home generator can increase your home's value to potential buyers, for convenience and security. Connected directly to a natural gas line or propane tank, we can take care of the maintenance, meaning there's little that you need to do besides relax and know you're in good hands.
With Cannondale Generators, Inc., we help you protect your home from extreme weather. Rather than worry if you have enough batteries to make it through the storm, you can hunker down and spend time with your family, cooking a hot meal on the stove rather than opening up a can of tuna fish. Contact us today to see what we can do for you.
