People living in areas with frequent power interruptions or those living far away from the grid, know the importance and benefit of a generator. Sizing the generator is an important task, because it determines what devices can you ran during the outage, and may depend on your budget. There are two main options you can pursue. One is a generator that serves as an emergency unit, providing power to those appliances that need it. The other option is to use a generator that will completely cover all power requirements for the whole house.
- Unlike portable generators, whole house generators do not risk the build up of carbon monoxide inside your home.
- Standby generators are integrated into the existing electrical system and may be customized to turn on only essential appliances.
- A whole house generator eliminates the risk of frozen pipes and keeps your alarm system working during a blackout.
