Last summer, our neighborhood was hit by the worst flood that has been seen in the area for over 100 years. I was very fortunate that the flooding missed my home, but we were without electricity for four days while the power company struggled to repair the damage that the flood had left behind. This was when we decided to invest in a whole-house generator. After buying the generator, we had to hire an electrician to install it because we wanted to ensure that it was installed and connected properly. If you are considering investing in a generator for your home, go to our blog to find out what you need to know before you buy and before you install it.
