Don’t get left in the dark! Here’s what you need to know about how to choose a generator backup so you are prepared for power blackouts.
It’s hard to appreciate just how valuable a generator can be until you’ve lived through a lengthy power outage without one. Many people wish for backup power only when it’s too late. Generators quickly sell out before and during emergencies, so don’t wait until the next major power failure to consider buying one.
This guide will teach you:
What are the two main types of generators?
The two main types of residential generators are portable and permanent standby. If you plan to power a few lights, your refrigerator and a furnace, a less expensive portable generator may provide enough power. If you intend to run your lights and furnace—along with a well pump, a freezer and other major appliances—you will need a permanent standby model.
Should I size my generator?
It’s important to match the size of your generator to your electrical needs. An undersized generator won’t last long and can destroy motors and other electrical equipment that require more current than the generator can deliver.
What type of fuels do generators use? What type should I choose?
Generators run on a wide variety of fuels, including gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, natural gas, propane and—in the case of some fuel cells—hydrogen.
What options do generators have?
Generators have a variety of options, including an electric start, portability kit, low-oil shutdown, high temperature shutdown and an extended warranty.
This how to choose a generator resource will teach you about generator components, noise issues, connecting your generator and provides a variety of operation and maintenance tips. Don’t wait … generators are a must-have item for survival situations so they sell out fast!
