When ice storms, rain and high winds batter Northern VA, fallen power lines leave thousands of customers without electricity—sometimes for days. Work and home life come to a standstill without power for appliances, lights and heating or cooling systems. Unforeseen expenses start piling up, and without electricity, refrigerated foods spoil, pipes freeze and basements flood. Relocation costs only add to the stress. Fortunately, you can prep your home and family for power grid failures by turning to Parrish Services for standby generator installation.
Permanent standby generators use natural gas, propane or other fuels to produce sustained electric power when electric lines go down. Many of these devices feature automatic switches to activate the unit, even when you are away from home. Wi-Fi monitoring lets you track operation, run diagnostic tests and spot potential repairs early—before the generator is called into service. Other essential features include auto fuel cutoff, which safeguards against fire and increases energy efficiency.
Parrish and GreenSky® have teamed up to offer affordable financing for generator installation and other services over $500. Financing plans include extended payments and competitive interest, and customers can apply online or call Parrish at 703.659.6069 to learn more.
When deciding on a standby generator, size, output and special features determine the price. If your goal is staying powered-up for weeks, you’ll need a whole-house power generator. Looking for a generator to keep lights on and run your freezer and refrigerator? A smaller home standby generator may suffice. And when you need auxiliary power for short-term emergencies, your technician may recommend a portable generator for cost-effective flexibility.
