For people living in areas frequently impacted by hurricanes, dealing with power outages has become an all-too-common experience
Bolingbrook, IL (Vocus) July 14, 2010
As summer hurricane season rapidly approaches, ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com announced its recommendations for top whole-house standby generators.
"For people living in areas frequently impacted by hurricanes, dealing with power outages has become an all-too-common experience," said Jim Baugher, resident product expert at Electric Generators Direct. Baugher added, "With a standby generator, you won't have to sweat out the next outage. You can stay cool with the A/C on and all your other appliances fully operational."
According to Baugher, most retailers are loyal to whatever standby generators are on their shelves.
ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com, however, isn't your ordinary retailer. The online superstore specializes exclusively in electric generators and carries more than 30 models of whole-house standby generators from many leading national brands.
The online retailer combined retail prices, recent sales history, customer reviews and personal insight to generate their final recommendations.
Once the dust and data settled, only 3 small whole-house standby generators and 3 large whole-house standby generators sold by ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com were given their prestigious "Recommended" status.
