Benefits of Propane Whole-house Backup Generators

The power can go out in your home anytime, for a multitude of reasons. Hurricanes, snow, ice storms, thunderstorms, automobile accidents, failures of the electrical grid and more can leave you without power for days. The longer these outages continue, the more inconvenient, uncomfortable and potentially hazardous they become.

You don’t have to worry about any of that if you install a whole-house backup generator fueled by propane. Delaware Propane offers expert propane-tank installation and propane delivery, so your new generator will be able to power your home.

Here are some of the ways a propane whole-house backup generator takes care of you and your home.


According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, food in a fridge can begin to spoil after less than four hours. Now look at all the food in your refrigerator and freezer and think about the way grocery prices have been going up. If you’re without power for more than a day, you may end up throwing hundreds of dollars’ worth of food into the garbage. A propane whole-house backup generator keeps your food cold or frozen and, most important, safe.


Your home security system will stay in operation while your propane whole-house backup generator is supplying power. Your sump pump will continue to operate if you have a basement, protecting it and all the items you have stored down there.


A propane whole-house backup generator allows you to work remotely, power TVs and gaming systems, charge phones and laptops, and stay connected with family, friends and local authorities.


If someone in your home uses medical equipment like a CPAP machine, home dialysis, or a stair lift, keeping the power on is essential. With a propane whole-house backup generator, this equipment stays running, so they stay safe.

Count on the courteous, responsive service from Delaware Propane to make sure your propane whole-house backup generator has the fuel it needs to keep your home safe and comfortable during an outage. Become a customer today!
