It’s the “Dog Days of Summer” and not only does that mean hot, humid weather, but here in Central Florida it also ushers in peak hurricane season. Every Florida homeowner knows that means stocking up on batteries, water, & peanut butter. And of course, standing in line at the gas station to fill up your car and get fuel for the portable generator. However, the addition of a whole house generator has become increasingly popular here in DeLand. It offers the peace of mind that in a hurricane, or even a typical afternoon lightning storm, your house will keep running all the needed appliances without a hiccup. They can be integrated into your home and run on propane, which many of the local companies keep filled and ready just in case that hurricane comes our way. 2679 Winnemissett Oaks is a perfect example of how adding a whole house generator makes living the ultimate Florida lifestyle even better!
