Keep Your Generator Ready With A Cold Weather Kit

cold-weather-kit-2 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.

County Lines Magazine Discusses Generators With SCC Electric

Dec14_coverA 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.

SCC Electric Interview On WHYY

thunderstorm

We were recently interviewed for a story on WHYY about the frequent power outages in our area:

Why does it seem like the outages are concentrated in Chester County? Goglia said it could be due to the more rural, undeveloped areas in southern Chester County, many bordering on Delaware and Maryland. The abundance of trees increases the chances that one might fall down and knock out power lines.”
