Electricity is often taken for granted, we need it for everything so we just expect it to be there. There are times where power outages happen and a lot of people want to know what generators are out there and what they can be used for. Some other questions people tend to have is how to use one, how much are they, and what type of generator is needed? A standby generator is your best bet in an area where power outages are frequent and need to power a multitude of things, these generators run on gas. An electric one is cheaper, but doesn’t last very long and won’t power very many things at once. You get what you pay for when it comes to generators so choose wisely.
- Before buying a generator, consider what appliances you want to run when the power goes out and then estimate your total load requirement.
- If you live in an apartment, consider a portable power station, which has limited power, but is safe to use indoors.
- The most expensive and powerful generators – standby generators – must be permanently installed in a home.
