 5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Residential Generator

Here are five of the most important ones:

1) Size: The generator should be big enough to handle the load you need it to carry. If you select one that is too small, it will not be able to meet your needs in an emergency.

2) Fuel type: Some generators run on gasoline while others use propane or natural gas. Make sure the generator you choose uses a fuel type that is available in your area.

3) Price: Generators vary in price from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. Choose one that fits within your budget but remember that you get what you pay for - a cheap generator may not last as long as a more expensive one.

4) Warranty: A good warranty is important, especially if you plan to use the generator frequently or in an emergency situation.

5) Noise level: Some generators are very loud while others are relatively quiet. Consider how important noise level is to you before making your purchase.


How to Choose the Right Generator for Your Needs

When it comes to choosing the right generator for your needs, there are a few things you need to consider. The most important factors are the size of the generator and the type of fuel it uses.

Residential generators come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and power output levels to accommodate the specific backup power needs of your home. The cost of a generator depends on these factors, as well as the brand and model you choose.

When choosing a generator for your home, it's important to consider how much power you'll need to maintain your home's essentials during an outage. A generator with too little power will run continuously and may not be able to keep up with demand, while a generator with too much power will be more expensive and may not be necessary.

You also need to consider the price of the generator and the warranty. And finally, you need to think about how loud the generator is. Some generators are very loud, while others are relatively quiet.

Once you have considered all of these factors, you can then decide which generator is best for you. 1-800-Plumber +Air & Electric of Amarillo offers a wide variety of generator options to meet your needs. Contact us today to learn more.



FAQs About Generators


What are the benefits of owning a generator?

There are many benefits to owning a generator, including providing backup power in case of an emergency, keeping appliances running during a power outage, and supplying power for recreational activities.

What are the different types of generators?

There are three main types of generators: standby generators, portable generators, and home standby generators. Standby generators are permanently installed and provide backup power to your entire home. Portable generators can be moved from place to place and are used to provide power for specific appliances or devices. Home standby generators run on natural gas or propane and provide backup power to your entire home.

How much does a generator cost?

The cost of a generator varies depending on the type and size of the generator you purchase. Standby generators typically cost more than portable or home standby generators.

How do I know what size generator I need?

The size of the generator you need depends on the wattage output required to run your appliances and devices. You can find the wattage requirements for your appliances online or in the owner's manual. Most generators have a rating label that lists the starting wattage and running wattage.
