Then, boom, everything goes dark and you’re left without power. A backup generator can help you restore power and stay in your home. Choosing the ideal generator for backup power can feel daunting though. Armed with the right information, you can find the perfect generator to keep your home up and running when the power goes out. We’ve even got a range of portable generators for outdoor activities like camping.
Generator Fuel Types
When it comes to generators, you’ve got a few options for keeping the lights on. For full home generators, large inverter generators that can provide ample power for multiple rooms are often ideal as a backup system. Inverter generators are usually fairly quiet as well. Other options like an electric generator, solar generator or propane generator can work as well. These cost-efficient generators are excellent for smaller spaces or if you don’t need to keep lights and appliances on in multiple rooms for any significant length of time. Gas generators, natural gas generator designs and dual fuel generator options are other excellent options for powering your home during an outage.
