Many of you remember the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Nearly a decade later, we’re still feeling the tragic effects that it brought to us here in the New Orleans, LA area. Nobody wants to relive a massively destructive storm like that ever again, but the truth is, we live in an area where the weather can change dramatically and quickly, and where hurricanes and super storms are something we all need to be prepared for. At Burkhardt, helping our customers stay as safe as possible during a power outage is important to us, which is why we offer high-quality home generators from Generac®.

When you face a power outage for an extended period of time, you and your family lose many of the basic necessities. You lose the ability to cook food, wash clothing, or even get the hygiene you need for personal health. In addition, a lengthy loss of power can be costly, especially if you lose all of the contents of your refrigerator and freezer due to spoilage. For people with health concerns that require oxygen, breathing treatments or other devices that rely on an electrical supply, a power outage can be more than just uncomfortable and inconvenient; it can be deadly. Having a backup source of power isn’t a luxury when you live in an area that can be hit by devastating storms without a great deal of warning – it’s a necessity.

At Burkhardt, we’re pleased to offer whole house generator installation. We have a team of skilled technicians that has been specially trained to provide you with the services you need. Unlike portable generators, our whole house generators operate automatically, as soon as a power outage is detected. What does that mean to you and your family? You’ll be safely supplied with power for as long as you need it, when you need it. Burkhardt takes the comfort and safety of your whole family very seriously, which is why we offer Generac generators, as well as service and repair for your generator should you need it.

Generac standby backup generators will provide automatic protection to your home in the event of a power outage. They run on natural gas or liquid propane, and are situated outside your home, much like your air conditioning unit. (This is because generators emit carbon monoxide and as such you should NEVER use one inside your home or garage. If you currently own a portable generator, please allow us to inspect it for you to ensure it is in a safe location and has been properly maintained.) With an automatic generator, you won’t have to worry about starting and stopping it yourself, because it automatically does that. And, you’ll never have to refuel it as it runs on your existing fuel supply. Plus, Generac whole house generators are wired right into your home’s electrical panel, so you won’t have to worry about cords.

At Burkhardt, our ultimate goal is top comfort for you and your family, as well as energy savings for your household.
