If you’re looking for service on your specific fireplace, or if you’re just interested in the benefits of other fuel sources, you’re in luck.

There’s a big misconception about the capability of portable generators. Mainly, that they’re not nearly as capable as people think they are. The reason for this could be due to the gap between portable generators and whole-house generators; the portable option sounds more affordable and “good enough” when you finally need it.
However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. When it comes down to a true emergency, a whole-house generator will quickly be realized as a wise investment. Portable generators do have their uses, but they’re truly only for an as-needed basis. They simply can’t offer the same level of reliability and function that a whole-house generator can. Below are a few reasons why.

Some problems you can ride out until help arrives, but everybody’s miserable when a home unexpectedly turns into a relentless sweat lodge. One sign of trouble is an AC leaking water. But what exactly does this mean? Is it time for a new system or is there an easier – that is, less expensive – fix available?

If you live in an area that frequently experiences strong storms and possible power outages, it’s a good idea to have a whole-house generator for backup in case the lights go out for an extended period of time. What you do not want, though, is to go turn on that generator and find out that it’s not running right (or won’t start at all). That’s why, just like everything else in your house, your whole-house generator needs maintenance and upkeep on a regular basis.
