Prepare for Severe Weather Season with a New Generator

You saw the headlines from the first weekend of March. Severe storms and deadly tornadoes roll through the Southeastern states. While storms can happen almost anytime if you follow weather closely you know the severe weather season usually starts South of us in late winter and then moves North. For us located in Indiana, the severe weather season is just starting.

Spring and summer storms can leave your Indiana home in the dark, sometimes for several days, because of power outages. The impacts of an outage can range from a major inconvenience to life-threatening, especially if someone in the home depends on medical equipment powered by electricity.

You may not think you need a backup generator, but if the power does go out you will be very happy you have one. Merts Heating & Air Conditioning features the full line of dependable Briggs & Stratton generators. When our qualified technicians install one of the units in your home, you won’t have to worry about going without power for extended periods of time.

While we are big believers in the reliability of Briggs and Stratton generators, Merts can install and service any brand. The key thing we want to emphasize is the importance of a professional installation. An improperly installed generator can be dangerous, not only for the people who live in the home but for the workers who are trying to restore your electricity.

A backup generator can be used to power everything in the home or to power certain key appliances. Most of them can be installed with an automatic transfer switch to automatically start the generator when the power goes out, even when you’re not at home.

The threat of severe weather certainly increases for us as we move into late spring and summer. Call Merts today, and let’s get your home protected with a Briggs & Stratton generator. Your peace of mind is worth it. Be sure to like and follow us on Facebook and Twitter so you don’t miss any of our great deals throughout the year.
