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.

How Air Purification Can Help Your Allergies

Air Purification for Your New Jersey Home

allergiesNow that we are FINALLY getting some warm weather here in New Jersey, those pesky allergies are starting to affect everyone.
Many homeowners attribute their allergies solely to the air they breathe while outdoors. In reality, the pollution in your home can be up to 100 times worse than the air outdoors. In homes with smokers or pets, the resulting particles can cause extreme irritation for some people, especially children.

And now for the good news – installing a home air purification system can drastically improve your indoor air quality and help relieve allergy and asthma symptoms! At Meyer & Depew, we offer a full range of indoor air quality products, including humidifiers, air purification systems, and UV lights. Each of our solutions are great investments and will provide you with cleaner, fresher air in your home.

For more info on our indoor air quality products, visit the Meyer & Depew Air Purification page.

Benefits of a High Efficiency Furnace

Has the cold winter taken a toll on your wallet with excessive heating bills?

With all the cold weather we’ve has this winter, most homeowners have experienced higher than average heating bills.

There are multiple ways to combat high heating bills. You could add zoning to you home (check out last week’s blog on zoning), add a programmable thermostat, or simply lower the temperature a few degrees in your home. However, if you have an older furnace that may need to be replaced, the best option is upgrading to a high efficiency furnace. As you will see, there are multiple benefits of a high efficiency furnace, including higher performance, money savings, and helping the environment.

At Meyer & Depew, we have a full range of Carrier brand furnaces, capable of up to 98% efficiency. So, if you have an older furnace that has lost efficiency over time, you could see monthly savings of up to 39%! If you do some simple math, you can quickly see that a high efficiency furnace will pay for itself over the course of its life in most cases.

Finally, there are usually manufacturer rebates and other incentives offered when purchasing higher efficiency furnace, so schedule a free, in-home, no-obligation consultation today to learn about current incentives and see exactly what system is best suited for you. Call us today at 908-272-2100 or click here to schedule now.

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!
