The Answer is: A Whole Home Generator

What happens when there is a power failure at your home? Does your basement flood without power to your sump pump? Does food spoil in your refrigerator or freezer? Do you feel disconnected not being able to watch the news on TV or charge your mobile electronics?

Honeywell whole-house natural gas-fired generators turn on automatically when the power goes off and turn off automatically when the power comes back on.
You don’t need to be home and you don’t need to run extension cords all over your house or stand in line to buy gasoline.

Whole Home Standby Generators In New Jersey

NJ natural gas generatorsDuring last week’s rain storms, many areas throughout the state were left without power. All of us know what it feels like to be stuck in your home with no power. New Jersey homeowners have been upgrading their homes with whole home standby generators at a record breaking rate since 2012 when we experienced Storm Sandy. It looks like we may be getting rain and thunderstorms in the next few days, so just make sure you are prepared in the event of another power outage, just in case. If you aren’t sure exactly what a whole home standby generator does, we’ve included some of the main benefits below:

  • Never lose power again – We all know the feeling of helplessness when the power goes out. With a whole home generator, you’ll never have to worry about that feeling again. You’ll have peace of mind, knowing your heat will stay on, your refrigerator will be cold, and any medical equipment won’t shut down.
  • No more spoiled food – Once your refrigerator loses power, it’s only a matter of time before the inside reaches room temperature. Once that happens, your food will quickly begin to go bad and become rotten. Throwing all of that food out could wind up costing you hundreds of dollars! With a Honeywell home generator, you won’t have to worry about spoiled food anymore!
  • Solutions customized to your needs – For those that rely on powered medical equipment, a power outage could become a life or death situation. If this is true for you or a family member, a home generator is a must. Meyer & Depew offers Honeywell home generators in multiple sizes – you can choose to only keep on the necessities, or keep everything powered.
  • Fully automatic – After Storm Sandy, many clients who previously relied on small portable generators decided to upgrade to a whole house generator. While portable generators have their benefits, they also suffer from many shortcomings. With a portable generator, once you know a storm is coming, you have to spend time setting the generator up, connecting everything, and running extension cords. In the event of a flash storm or if you aren’t home – you’ll be unprotected or have to set everything up in the storm. Our generators come with an automatic transfer switch, so you don’t have to worry. When the power goes out, the generator comes on and when the power is restored it shuts back down.
  • Quieter – A Honeywell standby generator can be up to 20 decibels quieter than a portable generator.
  • No waiting in line for gas – Whenever bad weather is expected, you can expect to see long lines at the gas station. If you rely on a portable generator, chances are you’ve had to stand in line waiting to fill up a red gas can multiple times. All those hours could have been spent relaxing at home instead of in line!

When To Replace Your Air Conditioning System

Air Conditioner ReplacementRepair or Replace? A Short Guide on When to Replace Your Cooling System

Every summer, when the first hot day hits, we are inevitably flooded with calls from homeowners who turned on their air conditioner, only to find out that the system would not start up. We understand the stress and frustration that comes with this experience. Furthermore, many homeowners in this situation must then also decide whether to repair the broken system or invest in a new system. We wanted to give our clients a short guide so if they are faced with the “Repair or Replace” question, their decision is a little easier.

Air conditioning system repair is usually the less expensive option, however, it is possible for some repairs to cost just as much as an air conditioning system replacement. For older air conditioners, the decision is whether you want to put money into a failing piece of equipment, or invest in a new, more efficient system with a warranty that you don’t have to worry about.

Below are some general rules for when it’s time to replace from EnergyStar.gov:

  • Your air conditioner is more than 10 years old

This is the normal life expectancy for heating & air conditioning equipment. After this time, repairs generally don’t make sense when compared to the cost of a new system. In addition, upgrading to a newer, more efficient system can save significant money on your utility bills.

  • Your air conditioner needs frequent repairs and energy bills are going up

These are the tell-tale signs that it’s time to invest in a new cooling system that can provide a higher, more stable level of comfort as well as reduced energy bills.
A modern system with a programmable thermostat can keep your energy bills low, while still ensuring you are comfortable while you are home.

  • You experience humidity issues or problems with excessive dust

Older equipment and leaky ducts can cause these problems – Meyer & Depew can install new cooling equipment as well as offer solutions for humidity and indoor air quality issues.

Not sure if you need a replacement? 

At Meyer & Depew, we offer free, no obligation, in-home consultations. If you aren’t sure if you would benefit from a new cooling system, Click Here or call us at 908-272-2100 to schedule an appointment today.
