Tips in Choosing the Right Home Power Generator
Usually, when one sets out to look for a Dane County
home power generator, he ends up confused and perplexed. There are just
too many home generators
nowadays that come in various shapes, sizes, models and prices coming
from different manufacturers and retailers. More often than not,
instead of going home with a home power generator, one ends up going
home with nothing other than more confusion. To prevent this from
happening to you, make sure you cover all the tips discussed in this
What is the first thing that I should consider?
Since the main purpose of a home power generator
is to supply electricity, the first thing you should ask yourself is
the amount of electricity you usually need at home. Generally,
medium-sized homes between 1000-3000 square feet will need a generator
that can supply 3000-5000 watts. This will be used for home emergency power.
But of course, no matter how big or small your home is,
it depends on how many electrical devices you have at home. To get a
more definite figure on your energy consumption, you can try adding the
total number and type of electrical devices that will require
electricity at the same time. Typically, watt ratings are printed on
the device itself so you won't have a hard time figuring it out.
After wards, you can sum up the wattage requirements for these devices to
get the overall wattage you'll require from your generator.
Other than wattage capacity, here are some more features
you must consider when looking for a home power generator.
How noisy is the unit? Of course, since you will be
using the electric generator at home, you do not want it to be loud and
noisy. As much as possible, you would want it to function with
minimal, if not zero noise so you can enjoy the comforts of your home
without getting disturbed by your generator.
You will have to determine what type of fuel you're
generator will be running on. There are many types of fuel available
today. You can either use diesel, gas, propane or natural gas. You might also want to check out the size of the tank so you can gauge how many hours of operating time it can give you.
You might want to rearrange the furniture in your house
or do some serious renovation. For this reason, you can choose a home
power generator that comes with wheels, or a transport trailer if in
the first place, it isn't light enough to carry by hand.
If you plan to position your near your windows, consider getting one with a protected control
panel. The control panel of your generator must be protected from rain,
dust, and other debris.
In order to ensure the safety of your home, ask
yourself if you have enough outlets available to handle everything you
need. Make sure that they are protected by a circuit breaker to prevent
fire accidents from happening.
As a whole, buying a home generator is not as puzzling as you think it is if you only know what to look for in one.
