MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

In this episode of Money Matters, host Chris Hensley deviates from the usual interview format and brings together a panel of experts to discuss the topic of portable generators. The inspiration for this episode comes from the power grid failure that occurred in Texas during the February 2021 ice storms, resulting in numerous deaths and widespread disruptions. Chris shares his personal experience during the storm and how having a natural gas fireplace helped him and his family stay warm and cook food. The panel dives into the importance of having a portable generator to power an entire home during emergencies like these. Tune in to gain valuable insights from this timely and relevant discussion.

The listener will learn about the benefits of using portable generators, including their ability to power an entire home during emergencies or natural disasters. They will also learn about a group on Facebook that offers affordable and DIY options for setting up portable generators. The episode covers topics such as choosing the right generator, fuel source options, customer support services, safety precautions, and the use of Easy Start products to run air conditioners on generators.
