Power Generators for Home

 

Most businesses that rely on an uninterrupted power supply have backup generators to keep the power going in the event of a major storm or other situation. Many product suppliers have also noticed a steady increase in sales to residential customers that’s more significant than the usual rush to purchase right before or after a storm.

A recent survey of generator supply companies indicates that although the majority of the generators sold to private citizens last year were portable generators, the highest rate of performance and customer satisfaction was achieved among those who bought standby generators; standby generators are units that are permanently installed. Some industry insiders predict that the number of homes with standby generators will double within the next 10 years.

When looking to buy a generator, the first consideration should be dependability and safety, not price. The second question you should have answered is what size generator you need. To determine the size you require, write down a list of essential features of your home that need a source of power should your supply be disrupted. A sample list might include:

Refrigerator/freezer
HVAC units
Septic and well pumps
Medical equipment
Home alarm systems
Non-essential luxury items such as TVs, computers and gaming systems

Your list may contain different items but make sure to list everything that is important for you and your family to have available in the case of a power outage. Another thing you should keep in mind is the number and size of the items on your list, like how many televisions, refrigerators and AC units will need power. Buy a generator that can adequately handle the power load without causing problems.

You can equip your home or business with generators from Equip Supply and similar companies. When using a generator, it’s important to carefully follow all of the manufacturer’s procedures for proper use, installation and storage. These guidelines are meant to keep consumers safer while they enjoy the convenience of an uninterrupted source of electricity in almost any conditions.
