Purchasing A Generator

When extreme weather hits, a generator means the difference between being without power or continuing to live comfortably. Power outages last for hours, days and even weeks, leaving you without regular resources. However, storms are not the only cause of power outages. Anything from curious animals and automobile accidents, to utility failures can trigger loss of power. Having a generator leaves you prepared for the unexpected.

There are a few different types of generators, each used for different reasons. When choosing which type of generator to purchase, consider where it will be put to use and for what purpose it’ll serve.

Generators at households are typically used to:

  • Power essential appliances and lights
  • Power an entire home
  • Provide backup for short and long term power outages
  • Power protection devices

In businesses, generators are used to:

  • Power essential electronics such as computers, networks and phones
  • Power an entire business
  • Power jobsite tools and lights
  • Provide backup for short and long term power outages

There are also generators used for recreation reasons such as camping, boating and tailgating. Each generator serves a different purpose and offers different amounts of power. It is important to consider how much energy you want your generator to supply.

Standby generators are often used for homes and businesses. They are permanently installed automatic systems that provide backup power protection. Standby generators run on liquid propane or natural gas. They automatically turn on and off when needed.

Portable generators are a mobile option for power needs. However, they are only intended as a backup solution for households and businesses in emergencies. Portable generators are often used for camping or powering select jobsite power tools. They run on gasoline, propane or solar energy.

Prepare for the unpredictable and get a generator. Whether it is for your home, business or recreational activities, make sure to choose one that meets your needs.
