If you have ever been left sitting in the dark after a power outage you know how frustrating it is to be left without power. If you want a back up system to power your home during a power outage then you will want to have a generator for your whole house. You can schedule an appointment to see what size generator would be right for you, or you can calculate the wattage that will be used inside of your home, and make sure you buy the right size.
- A good rule when sizing a generator is to exceed the power demands of your current use.
- If you buy a generator that is either to small or too large you will overload the equipment or pay too much in operation cost.
- Don’t forget items like clothes dryers and air conditioning that may only be on once and a while.
“Find a generator powerful enough to exceed the combined wattage of everything that needs electricity.”
