I'm talking about a large propane-fired unit that sits outside and is
hooked up to your electricity. It kicks on when power goes out, and
cuts off when power is restored. It has that special automatic switch
feature that prevents damage when the electricity is restored.
I heard that some companies provide a service contract that features
monthly inspection and maintenance. Any experience with this?
Just as a rough estimate, how many miles per gallon ... er, I mean how
many hours of power do you get on a full load of propane, assuming
that you use most of your BIG power drains (well pump, plumbing, hot
water heater, oil furnace, computer, two refrigerators, TV) but not
washer, dryer, or air conditioning?
When the 'cane came through, power was out three days. Would a full
load of propane fill this demand?
