I’m here at the Kuppersmith Project job site where we’re about to install a whole house generator that will provide electricity to the home in the event of a power outage. Within 10 seconds of a power outage, the generator will cut on automatically to provide enough electricity to power the entire house.

A backup power supply is really important in a hurricane prone area like Mobile, Alabama, where the Kuppersmith house is located, since the power can go out for days or even weeks after a major storm. But power outages caused by high winds, blizzards, or ice storms can occur anywhere in the country. So no matter where you live, a whole house generator is a great idea for your home.

The family that moves into the Kuppersmith house when it’s finished will be able to stay comfortable no matter what the weather outside, thanks to the whole house generator.
