Purchasing a Generator
What is the best type of generator for home use?
Depending on the size of your home and how many electrical appliances you power, you may not need a high wattage generator. We will help you determine whether a portable or standby generator is right for you.
What are the kinds of generators for home use?
There are two types of generators for home use:
- Portable: These are easier to install and generally cost less, but they run on propane (or another source) and must be plugged in and kept covered during inclement weather at least 15 feet away from your home. They require fuel to be administered and need to be manually shut off once the power comes back on. They require 3,000-8,500 watts.
- Standby: Standby generators require installation by a professional and are more expensive. However, in the case of power loss, they automatically turn on, run self-diagnostics (saving you time and maintenance), and you can choose from a number of fuels. They also automatically shut off once the utility power comes back on. Standby generators range from 5,000-20,000 watts.
Electricians Inc. carries Generac and Cummins portable and standby generators, which are generators for home use in an emergency situation. For either type, we will come install the generator for you.
What are the features to consider when purchasing a generator?
There are a number of factors to consider when purchasing a generator:
- Type (portable or standby)
- Power usage
- Transfer switch option
- Maintenance required
Should I purchase a generator?
Generators are backup systems in case of power loss. They’re crucial for hospitals, schools, clinics, etc., but they can also be useful for residences and commercial properties. Generators can power refrigerators, electronics, light, water, and all of the other important functions of your home that you don’t want to lose during a power outage.
