Benefits of a Power Generator

Having a back-up power generator is a smart idea incase an electricity related emergency arises. Generators provide backup power when a blackout occurs, preventing the grid from dispersing electricity to your home as it normally would. There are two different forms of power generators: portable and standby.

Portable generators mainly function as a power source for specific items, and are typically powered by gasoline. These can never be placed inside because of the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Standby generators are permanently installed outside of your home. They can run on local utility lines by natural gas or liquid propane. Both forms of generators provide benefits that will save money in the long run. You won’t need to worry about your food defrosting in the freezer, or being without a heater during the cold winter months.
