Consider investing in a propane whole house emergency generator. Make sure that:
It is powerful enough to run the appliances you need
You test it throughout the winter to keep parts lubricated
You know how to operate it safely
You have enough propane to run it for at least a week
If you have a gas-powered generator, make sure you have carbon monoxide alarms installed on every level of your home – especially in areas where people sleep.
When severe weather is forecast, be sure you have enough propane for at least a week in the event of an outage. And don’t forget: if your propane-powered system is shut down for any reason – including a power outage – you must have it turned back on by a licensed professional (it’s the law!).
