"Severe weather is the single leading cause of power outages in the United States. Don't wait until it's too late to protect your home and family," says Ed Del Grande, a home improvement columnist, author and TV host. "In addition to these simple power hacks, it's important to consider the ultimate power hack for your home this hurricane season – a standby generator."
Generator manufacturers like Kohler produce a variety of standby generator models, as well as portable and industrial options depending on your needs.
An automatic standby generator is permanently installed outside a home, similar to a central air conditioning unit, and runs on natural gas or liquid propane. When power is lost, a standby generator automatically turns on – often within seconds – meaning that a homeowner does not need to be present to start or refuel the generator. Depending on size, a standby generator can power everything in a home, including lights, heating/cooling systems, refrigerators, sump pumps, home security systems and more.
