It is summer time, and that’s the time when we can see some inclement weather resulting in outages. It is no wonder that this is the time when many people consider purchasing a generator in order to secure an alternate power source for such situation. Sizing the equipment is the most important factor in your purchasing process. Inadequately selected equipment will not be able to meet your demand. Of course, there is no single rule of thumb you can apply to this analysis, as individual needs will vary.
- A whole house generator is great for areas that have frequent power outages.
- A whole house generator can run for as long as you need it to run, as long as you continue to provide fuel for it.
- In order to get the full life span out of a generator, you need to make sure you’re getting the routine maintenance on it.
“Now … how long can the generator keep running?”
