Importance Of A Backup Generator

A backup generator will provide power to your home or job site when there is a power outage due to storms, accidents or equipment failure. Purchasing a backup generator is a very important purchase that will give you a peace of mind.  Before your purchase, you may be searching about home generators and the different types there are. Well, there are two basic types of backup generators, portable generators and standby generators. Portable generators are plugged into an extension cord or electrical panel while standby ones will start automatically after a power outage. Standby generators are powerful enough to power your heating and central air conditioning systems along with your appliances.

Benefits Of Having A Home Backup Generator

Most of us can’t survive without our internet services or television. Luckily, with a proper generator you can supply power for internet and television and even your security systems will remain working. Your backup power can come in many sizes, from small ones for RV’s or large ones for more commercial usage. Your average household will need a 5 kilowatt generator that will use a gallon of gas every 2 hours if it is running at 50% capacity. With this information in mind, you will need to know the maximum wattage and generator sizing to properly supply your home. Fortunately, maintenance for generators is not difficult. With just regular testing and exercising the feature you should be fine.
