Propane Generators

Oftentimes, losing power isn’t something we think about until the storm clouds are rolling in. Keep your family safe, secure, and comfortable with a propane standby generator.

Benefits of Propane Generators

Quick to Kick On & Start

After a power interruption, it only takes a connected propane-powered generator 10 seconds to start automatically.

Powers a Home Up To Five Days

A 7kW standby generator drawing from a 250-gallon propane tank can provide enough electricity to power your home for up to five days.

Quieter Than Other Generators

Propane generators are quiet – most units produce as little as 60 decibels of noise.

Does propane last longer than gasoline or diesel?

Propane is the perfect standby fuel because, unlike gasoline and diesel, it won’t degrade over time.

How long will a propane generator run?

Homeowners can expect a propane-powered generator to burn 2-3 gallons per hour. Many Ferrellgas customers have generators powered by a 500-gallon propane tank. Keeping in mind that a propane tank is considered “full” at 80 percent water capacity, a full 500-gallon tank contains 400 gallons of propane. That means a 500-gallon tank that only powers a home’s propane generator can last 5-6 days.

Can a propane generator be used indoors?

Propane tanks, including 20lb cylinders, should not be used or stored indoors. Be sure to reference and follow the manufacturer’s instructions that come with your propane generator or any other propane appliance.
