How to Choose the Best Generator for Your Property 


How to Choose the Best Generator for Your Property 

Posted on:30 Mar, 2021 / Posted In: Generac

If you have a standby generator on your commercial or residential property, the generator will serve as a source of power in the event of a blackout. As such, your generator can power the lights, computers, and various appliances — something that may be critical for comfort or may even be life-saving in some cases, and something that may be integral to protecting business assets and operations.

With the above in mind, it’s important to remember that not all generators are the same. In fact, not only are there numerous different brands and models of generators, but there are different sizes of generators, too. At Generator Technologies, Inc., we can help you to choose the right generator for your property.

Know Your Power Needs

The most important consideration when choosing a generator for your property, whether you are selecting a residential or a commercial generator, is how much power you’ll need. For homeowners, this may be a question of which appliances you want to be able to use should the power go out; for commercial business owners, it may be a question of how much you have to power in order to keep things up and running, such as a large refrigerator for a restaurant, or a high-powered computer for another company.

A home standby generator can provide up to 20,000 watts of power — that’s a lot! This is enough to power just about everything under your roof, including your fridge, smaller appliances, computer, charging for your laptop and phone, furnace, air conditioner, etc.

Know for How Long You May Need a Generator

In addition to just thinking about what you want to power, you should also think about how long you expect to need power. If you live in an area with frequent blackouts and know that you’re on your own pretty frequently, and if you know that outages can last for hours at a time, this may lead you to consider purchasing a larger generator. On the other hand, if power outages are very infrequent and unlikely in your area and, if there is an outage, you don’t expect it to last for very long, you may not need as powerful of a generator.

Talk to the Experts About Brands

Really, the best way to make a decision about the size of a generator that you need is to talk to the experts about your options and the different makes and models that exist. It’s not just about generator size; it’s also about function and reliability. A pro can help you to select a brand that has a good reputation and will serve you well for years to come.
