  • Home generators operate by converting fuel, such as diesel, gasoline, or natural gas, into electrical energy through a rechargeable battery, similar to a car's engine. They are beneficial during power outages, allowing you to remain safe and comfortable until power is restored. Home generators keep critical home appliances and devices, such as refrigerators, freezers, sump pumps, furnaces, lights, fans, and more, functioning during a power loss.
  • Home generators come in various types, each with unique features, advantages, and limitations. The two primary types of home generators we install include:

    • Portable Home Generators – These generators supply power to a limited number of critical appliances in your home until regular power is restored. They are started and connected to the necessary appliances manually. These generators are cheaper than standby models and can cost between $500 to $1,500, but they have limitations, as they can only power a limited number of appliances at once, and using them in improper locations can cause the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
    • Home Standby Generators – Standby generators run on natural gas or propane. When paired with automatic transfer switches, they can turn on automatically during a power outage, providing continuous power without interruption. Although standby generators offer greater convenience and peace of mind, they come at a higher cost, ranging from $5,000 to $15,000. However, investing in a standby generator may be a wise choice if you rely on electricity to power most of your home's electrical devices.

Choosing the Right Size

It is essential to calculate the total wattage required by the devices you plan to power with your home backup generator to ensure that it can meet your needs. This calculation should include the wattage of all electrical appliances, lights, and other devices you intend to operate simultaneously. After determining the total wattage required, you can choose a generator with the appropriate capacity to meet your needs. Selecting the right generator size is crucial because an undersized generator cannot power all your essential electrical devices. In contrast, an oversized generator will be more expensive to purchase and maintain, as well as wasteful in terms of fuel consumption.

Top Benefits of Home Generators

Home generators provide a reliable backup power source during a power outage, ensuring that your essential appliances and devices stay operational. Here are some of the top benefits of having a home generator installed in your residence:

  • Uninterrupted Power Supply – A home generator provides a reliable backup power source in the event of a power outage, ensuring that your home's essential appliances and devices continue operating seamlessly.
  • Increased Safety – Power outages can threaten your safety, particularly if you have medical equipment that requires electricity. A home generator ensures that you and your family can access power and avoid potential safety hazards during a power outage.
  • Increased Home Value — Installing a home generator can increase the value of your property, particularly if you live in an area prone to power outages.
