As in everything in life, that depends! Choosing the right backup generator is the key to meeting your electrical needs during an unexpected power loss.
The first step is to select the systems and appliances that you would like to use during a sudden or prolonged outage! These include the most obvious ones like the refrigerator, but there are many less obvious ones, like the well or sump pump! - if you have one,we need to back it up so you have water! Don't fret, we will help put together a comprehensive list from our site survey!
Once you have decided on the appliances you need during an outage, we need to determine the total amount of power they will require.
This is easy using our Automatic Wattage Calculator at the bottom left.
By Checking the appliance you need, you will then be given a total running and surge wattage and a recommendation as to the type of Generator you need, a Portable or Standby. Obviously the more power you require, the larger the generator must be.
Once we have determined the size of the generator needed, we will make a recommendation as to the exact generator you will require based upon your desired fuel source. At this point you can go to our cost page to determine an approximate total cost, which will be refined upon our free on-site Survey.
