We love this time of year at Southeast Gas! Over the next few weeks, we'll be presenting checks to 20 school systems as part of our Give Back to Schools program, and we'll also begin receiving Community Service Scholarship applications from across our service area. There's no denying it - we love our schools!
Natural gas generators provide many consumers with security and peace of mind by providing reliable standby power during electricity outages. The convenience of a natural gas generator makes it the most popular choice for the home.
When the electricity goes out, the generator automatically starts the engine. The lights are likely to be off for little more than 10 seconds, and when the power returns, the generator switches off and the home transfers back to utility electricity.
Homeowners can trust the reliability of the natural gas engines found in many generators. Similar to modern automobiles, natural gas generators require routine oil filter and spark plug changes. The gas is delivered directly to your appliance whenever you need it via the same piping system that supplies natural gas to your stove, heater or water heater.
There is also little or no lea rning curve involved in making the transition to a natural gas generator. Automatic standby gas generators are now broadly available for installation outside of a home. They can be installed in a home within an hour or two. Natural gas generators can run for a few hours or multiple days at a time, and the homeowner never even has to leave the couch.
