It's Grads and Dads time!!
If you have a graduate in your family, the month of June may be filled with a whirlwind of activities.  Ceremonies, proms and family parties serve to celebrate this lovely milestone...graduations are harbingers of possibility as to what the new road ahead entails.  Such an exciting time! 
June is also the month where we honor fathers. Did you know that Father's Day was initially declared for the third Sunday in June by President Johnson in 1966? Dads reading this might be successful in using this as leveraging to put their feet up this Sunday, too!  But no matter when we recognize it, Father's Day is a day to honor all of the special dads in our lives. Jim Valvano, the beloved basketball coach at NC State, said this about his own dad, "My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person - he believed in me."  Of course, our hats are off to all our "EPS" dads who believed.  Powerful and so beautiful is the legacy of a great dad!

From the EPS perspective, June is a GREAT time to think about minor home improvements.  Read on to learn how we can help protect your property and valuables from power surge damage... Check out our power washing before and after pics below. Using our Generac Pressure Washer transforms old and dingy to sparkly and like-new!! 

As always, we thank you for reading this month's issue.  As your Generac dealer and/or electrical contractor, we look forward to being of service to you whenever we're needed!

Save Money and Peace of Mind
Whole house surge protection !!

With summer thunderstorms a part of living here in the Hudson Valley, protecting your home electronics and systems from power surges makes sense.  

However, the truth is that power surges can happen in any kind of weather due to a variety of causes. In fact, the majority of power surges come from within your house! The damage these cause is often extensive, leading to expensive repairs/replacements, loss of important records and irreplaceable photos, and business interruption. Even factoring in insurance coverage, deductibles and inconvenience make this a costly event!

One way to add protection against this kind of loss is to install a whole house surge protector. If you're thinking that the surge protectors you purchase at local home improvement stores are enough, please read this article from HouseLogic:

Essential Power Systems can install a whole house surge protector for you (prices start at $265).  Isn't it worth a small investment now for added peace of mind (not to mention not having to negotiate with your insurance company, deal with electronics/appliance repair personnel, shop for costly replacements, and overall major inconvenience)?

Call 845-227-0514 or email us today to schedule your installation!! 

Not convinced that this is a worthwhile enhancement to your home?  Check out this short article from This Old House magazine.

Real Generac Stories of the Hudson Valley 
Thank you to one of our valued EPS customers for sharing
their experience...Generac Standby Generators provide comfort, add peace of mind, and protect your home and your family during power outages.  To schedule your complimentary estimate, call us at 845-227-0514 or email us.  
"After experiencing 5 consecutive days without power during the February 2010 snowstorms, we were determined not to experience another winter without we had a standby generator installed by EPS. Our generator has gotten us through the customary winter outages, but {also} through the long outage that the area experienced after Tropical Storm Irene came storming through in August 2011.  Again, we lost power for 5 days, but we were still able to cook, have access to running water (very important!!!), watch the news, stay cool, vacuum water from the basement and do work from home because our generator was running like a champ. Even during that time, EPS contacted us to make sure we were ok and that our generator was running the way it should be and reminded us of maintenance tasks that we would have to take due to the length of the outage and time that the generator had been running. With our generator, we no longer have to stay with family over 75 miles away and go back and forth checking on our house during outages while waiting for the power company to get to our area."
