Choosing a Generator for Your Home

Selecting the right generator for your home is a significant task that demands careful consideration. To ensure your household’s power needs are met seamlessly, several important factors come into play. We’ll dive into each:

  • Power requirements: Power requirements refer to the amount of energy needed to operate multiple devices at the same time, including lighting, equipment, and appliances. Selecting the appropriate generator depends on its capacity to consistently meet your energy needs. Consider both continuous and intermittent usage when evaluating your needs.
  • Fuel choice: You can choose between gas, solar, propane, natural gas or diesel as your fuel source for your generator. Do your research or speak to a technician to determine what’s right for your home.
  • Size of the generator: You should consider the size of your home and the amount of appliances you’d like to provide power to. A technician can help you determine the right size generator based on your needs.
  • Transfer switch: To turn on your generator, you’ll need a switch. In the case of a power outage, an automatic transfer switch makes for the most convenient option.
  • Safety features: Look into the additional features a generator provides, such as an automatic CO shutoff.
