Whole house fans are a great way to cool your house down this summer. They pull fresh cool air in from outside the house and push it through the attic and then back outside, cooling the attic at the same time.
Whole house fans can save you money on your electric bills by lowering your air conditioning usage. This Tamerack HV 1600 pictured here was installed in Lancaster and it has powerful energy efficient fan motors and comes with a two speed remote control.
This Generac 8000 watt portable generator was installed in West Chester, PA
We just had our first ice storm of the season, and fortunately it wasn’t as bad as ice storms from the past. However, don’t let old man winter sneak up on you next time. Get prepared with a portable generator!
For most homes we recommend the Generac 8000 watt portable generator. This unit has what it takes to keep the important things working during a power outage, and it also won’t break the bank. Your refrigerators, sump pump, well pump, heater and lights can be wired into a transfer panel to make it easy.
Once it’s set up, there will be no need to run a bunch of dangerous extension cords throughout the house. Just roll out the generator and plug in one cord, then hit the transfer panel switches.

The Atlantic hurricane season is with us until the end of November, and winter storms are just around the corner. All of that wind, rain, snow and ice leads to power outages, sometimes for days. Let us help you get prepared with a generator that’s right for you. Read the rest here »
Generator transfer switch and power management modules by Generac work together as a system to manage the power load from appliances, allowing you to prioritize so they don’t come on all together at the same time and cause your generator to overload when you need it the most. Pictured is a 200 amp automatic transfer switch with smart management modules installed in Oxford, PA.
The Generac Synergy generator with G-flex variable speed technology saves money on fuel by automatically adjusting engine speed to electrical demand. This means it also runs much quieter that most standby generators.

Special thanks to Cash and Carry electric for donating the light fixture and also a special thanks to Camerons Hardware for donating the use of the lift.
We recently installed two RAB LED Bullet flood lights on this sign for Oxford Veterinary Hospital. Each light only draws 12 watts but is equivalent to 75 watt halogen and has a lifespan of 100,000 hours.

This past winter with its cold temperatures could have caused major problems to homeowners if there was a power outage. With temperatures in the teens and single digits it wouldn’t take long for your house to freeze causing thousands of dollars in damage. Give us a call and let us help you get prepared with a generator that’s right for you.
During last winter’s power outages some standby generators were unable to start. In some cases the extended periods of cold temperatures caused the battery to loose power and the crankcase oil to thicken, making it hard to start.
To prevent this, Generac has a cold weather kit that will automatically maintain optimum battery and oil temperatures throughout the winter, keeping your generator ready to start even in extreme cold.
The photos show a cold weather kit that we installed in Ovations, a 55 and older community in West Grove, PA.
A recent article in Chester County’s County Lines Magazine covered the topic of surviving winter power outages with the help of a generator. We were interviewed for the article, which explains generator options, things to look for in a generator, as well as installation and maintenance.
During a February snowstorm last winter, over 39,000 homes—a fifth of Chester County—were without power. For many, that outage lasted several days. For some, it was one of several cold and dark times last winter. Others, however, only experienced a temporary flicker, and the lights, heat, refrigerators, appliances … continued unabated.
