How to Prepare Your Generator for Hurricanes and Severe Weather

September 27th, 2023

The Height of Hurricane season is officially upon us. Even if you don’t live in an area prone to hurricanes, spring and summer can bring severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, and more. It’s just as critical to have your generator ready to go if the power goes out. Here, your friends at Guerrera & Sons Electric have collected some tips to help you make sure your generator starts up easily when you need it most.

Got Bugs?

June 24th, 2023

It’s well known the importance of routine pest control for our homes, but what about pest control for your home or business standby generator? There are a number of insects and rodents that can cause substantial damage to stand by generators units. In our area, these pests tend to vary by season.

Tropical Storm Nate could impact the Philadelphia Area as early as Monday October 9

October 6th, 2017

The latest models show the likelihood of a visit and impact from Tropical Storm Nate, currently near Central America. The latest forecasts have the storm strengthening as is moves north across the Gulf of Mexico, making landfall early on Sunday morning near Louisiana, and then moving north towards the Mid Atlantic States and Pennsylvania. While we expect the storm to be diminished in strength by the time it reaches Pennsylvania, there could be considerable amounts of rain and wind to deal with.
If you have not done so, already, please check your generators (assuming you have a generator) to make sure it is on line or will start in case it is needed. Check your oil and in the case of LP customers or those with portable generators, check your fuel levels. If you have questions about your generator, you may contact us through our website, to report trouble or to order last minute service.
