Many enterprises and families don’t take any measure for electricity outage. It’s mostly considered as just a minor inconvenience. Certain places however, will need a power generator as they need power at all times, like restaurants with frozen meats or hospitals’ critical systems.
Why should an ordinary home owner buy a generator? Every now and then we get the perfect storm, whether it is a hurricane or a typhoon, they tend to cause a lot of destruction. Having no power might be a hassle for some, but if you live in some of the colder countries, this can be deadly! Now that we’ve talked about the importance of generators, let’s talk about the different types of generators to help you make an informed decision.
General tips and considerations before choosing a generator.
Generator Power Options
Generators burn fuels usually propane, natural gas, gasoline or diesel to supply power. The safest fuels are propane and natural gas, please take that into consideration.
Generator motors usually use engines from well known names such as: Ford, GM and Honda. I recommend buying from these names as it makes it easier to find parts and repair service for them.
These generators are installed permanently as an emergency power source. Used in businesses and restaurants that need power on at all times, they are hardwired to your electrical system and get fuel from city or propane lines. These kind of generators will power most if not all systems, letting you get with business as usual during dark times. Quality generators have numerous safety features to prevent injury and damage. The better ones can even be shutdown automatically to prevent damage.There are also models with noise mufflers to prevent complaints.
These generators are smaller and more portable but provide less power. These generators are usually seen in construction sites to power certain tools. They can power the lights and fans of the house when electricity is cut, but not much else. They are cheaper and often that alone goes along way. These generators are for normal houses to keep the lights on during a blackout.
Choose a model that powers what you need the most during a storm or snowstorm.
