Power outages are typically caused by severe weather or equipment failures and usually cause homeowners to be very upset as it’s difficult to live without power. A generator can solve that problem as it provides an alternate source of power to your home. A portable generator is usually fueled by gas and can be plugged into an electrical panel. A standby generator is usually a generator that is right outside your home and is similar to an HVAC system. Depending on the size of your home, you’ll need to pick the generator that is best for you.
