After years of power outages you have decided that "Enough is Enough". You are ready to take "the power" into your own hands and invest in a generator for your home. Congratulations, you have just taken the initial step in purchasing a generator and providing a sense of peace of mind and warmth for your family.
After you have made that initial investment decision, you might be tempted to go straight to your local warehouse and buy the first generator you see on the racks. CAUTION! If you are like most, it has taken several interruptions and time without power to come to this decision. So, it warrants considering your options to best suit your needs. Or maybe you are simply preparing for what may come. In either case, it warrants finding the best fit for your needs economically and functionally.
It is recommended that you weigh several options before making your final decision. Here are just some questions to ponder: (1) How much are you willing to spend? (2) Do you want to provide power to the entire home or specific items within your home? (3) Do you want the generator to be portable or stand alone? (4) Do you want the generator to automatically supply power after an outage?
These questions may seem daunting, however they are worth contemplating as a little research will go a long way in helping to make a sound decision. Here are a few sites that I found to be most helpful: Home Depot, Electric Generators Direct & Briggs & Stratton. I particularly liked looking at the reviews on the Electric Generators Direct site and using the wattage calculation tool on the Briggs and Stratton site. It should be noted that talking to an electrician for further advice would be highly recommended.
Lastly, BE SAFE! Please make sure to operate the generators according to the manufacturers recommendations. Make sure to keep the generators a safe distance from any air entry to your home, so as to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, check and maintain the equipment and ensure that you are storing any fuel supply safely and that it is in accordance with your insurance provider's policy.
