When making your hurricane preparedness plan this year, you may be considering adding a generator to your list.
As a southwest Florida homeowner, if you don’t already have a backup generator, you’re most likely in the market for one. Most people can’t afford to go hours— sometimes days— without power, every time a storm hits.
Whether you use your portable generator at home, the office or for camping, the last thing you want is for it to fail when you need it the most. Unfortunately, in the real world, things happen. Filters break, fuel lines clog and pull cords tear.
Next thing you know, your small but mighty backup generator is having delays starting, is rattling or isn’t firing up at all!

As a Florida resident, you know heavy winds and rains knock over trees and power lines all the time— and you admit you could really benefit from a backup generator.

Hurricane season is upon us, so you are probably thinking about assembling your hurricane kit, checking batteries in the flashlights, stashing them anywhere you can think of – you know, just in case the area finds itself on a first name basis with a tropical storm and your power goes out.
