The size and power output of the generator will depend on your specific needs. Determine which appliances and systems you want to keep running during an outage and calculate their combined wattage to help you choose the right generator.
Standby generators typically run on propane or natural gas. Consider which fuel source is more readily available in your area and which one is more cost-effective for your usage.
Standby generators should be placed in a location where they can operate safely and effectively. Consider factors such as ventilation, noise, and accessibility when choosing the placement of your generator.
