With the onslaught of thunderstorms coming this week and for the rest of the season, we’re definitely going to see an increase in generator purchases. With the climate changing, we’ve seen weather-related power outages double since 2003 and they’re only getting more severe. You’re lucky you’ve got your portable generator in the garage in case you lose power this season, right?
Well, you might not be as lucky as you think. Portable generators are meant for worksites, campsites, tailgating, and other—less power-intensive—energy needs. If you’re looking to power your whole house for a few days, including air conditioning, from the convenience of your smartphone, then you’re going to want to upgrade to a whole-house generator.
