If you guessed “portable generators” you’re absolutely correct, but you may be wondering why you would ever need one of those things in the first place.

  1. On The Job - depending on the industry you work in, a portable generator can make your job a heck of a lot easier. Not all job sites are connected to electrical supplies, especially if you’re working on brand new construction.

    You may also need a generator if your line of work includes powering electric signs, scoreboards or flood or field lights.

  2. Recreational Activities - like to go camping? Enjoy spending time outdoors? You don’t always have access to wall outlets while you’re spending time doing the activities you enjoy outside which is why portable generators can be a major help.

    Just think about how much more you’ll enjoy your next camping trip if you can brew a hot cup of coffee in the morning and power an electronic bug zapper.

  3. Safety in Severe Climates - we all know how frigid the winters can be in Philadelphia and we all know how hot it can get in the summertime. Having a portable generator to rely on should the power go out can make a world of difference.

    Being able to power a heater or furnace during the winter months or an air conditioner during the summer can literally be a lifesaver.

Just remember, if you’re going to be using a portable generator around your house they can pose a serious safety hazard if they’re used the wrong way. Give GEN3 Electric a call today and we’ll make sure your setup is safe and ready for use.
