Generators are a source of backup power that allow you to continue using essential appliances and lights during a power outage. Power outages can cause spoiled food and loss of light. They also can cause basements to flood and security systems to fail. Power Outages may result in potentially life-threatening situations, such as loss of air conditioning during hot summer days or heat during frigid winter months. The loss of power for electrically operated medical equipment can have dire consequences.
The two main types of Generators that are suitable for homes are portable or standby. Portable Generators run on fuels such as gasoline, diesel, or natural gas. They have short run time and need to be refilled on a regular basis throughout the power outage. Standby Generators, or whole house Generators, are already connected to the house wiring and source of fuel. Standby Generators start automatically or with a push of a button when a power outage occurs. The main advantage of standby generators is they can run for longer periods of time because they do not require refilling. Like any motor the motor oil should be changed as part of the regular maintenance.
