Most portable home generators run on gas. During a major storm, trips to the gas station become hectic and gas supply becomes unpredictable.Standbys offer more features and convenience over portable generators. Attached to your home, standby generators come on automatically after a power outage, meaning you don’t have to worry about trips to the gas station or braving the elements to set up your portable. Whole-home generators are available with several options from fuel sources, sizes, costs, and more. Choosing the right size for your home and power needs is an important step.
- A standby generator is used outside of the home and comes on automatically once a power outage happens.
- A whole house generator runs on a natural gas supply and it can power up all your important appliances such as the water heater and the fridge.
- A whole house generator that works off of natural gas is more valuable.
