The grid is not as reliable as consumers may want to think. That is why it is recommended you have a back up power supply system. This can be a solar PV system or a back up generator. Whatever the case, the power back up system must be able to supply enough power to meet your home’s energy needs. There are many types of portable home generators on the market, so you should not be in a rush to buy one before considering all the necessary factors.
The engine capacity, starting mechanism, power output, size and weight of the generator are all key factors to be considered. Obviously, price is a key factor to be taken into consideration when comparing generators. After all, you want a generator that can fit into your budget comfortably. The ideal generator should come with a long-term warranty.
