How do I Choose the Right Generator for My Needs?

One of the best ways to figure out what sort of generator you need is to picture your home without power. What are the electrical appliances you will need if you have to go without power for a few days?

Some basics that you should take account of:

  • Heating and cooling system
  • Refrigerator and freezer
  • Oven and stove
  • Microwave
  • Water heater
  • Sump pump
  • Television
  • Router
  • Some electrical sockets to charge cell phones
  • Lighting
  • Washer and dryer
  • Security system
  • Garage door opener

These are just some of the basics that you should consider when deciding what your stand by generator will need to power. You can research your needs online to find out the power needed for each or there is often a sticker on the machine itself with the information. Once you have the number check to see that you have a generator that covers the total amount of energy you may need. It is recommended to get a generator with a little more power than is necessary.

Alternatively, our technicians can analyze the power usage in your home and provide you with an accurate account of the type of generator that is best for you.
