When the power goes out in your neighborhood, do you have a way of powering your home so you can stay comfortable? “If you want to be able to do more than light a few candles and turn on a flashlight, consider a power generator” suggest the local electricians from Doctor Electric. Since there are several different types of generators, Doctor Electric describes the three main types.
3 Types Of Generators Local Electricians Recommend
1. Home Standby Generators
If it’s imperative that your home stay powered at all times, such as if a sick family member relies on a vital machine or appliance, consider a standby generator. These are designed to come on automatically and within seconds after a power outage and can be configured by your local electricians to support an entire home if necessary. Typically, they run on propane or natural gas.
2. Inverter Generators
A type of portable generator, these lightweight and quiet devices are popular among campers, boaters, and others who spend a lot of time outdoors. Some can even be connected to each other—just ask about parallel kit compatible inverter generators.
3. Portable Generators
These generators are best-suited for temporary activities and are often found at construction work sites, carnivals, outdoor festivals, and farmer’s markets. You can use them at home too, but most are noisy to power up.
