How to Choose the Right Size Generator
We know that it can be difficult to determine which generator is the right one to meet all of your needs just by looking at them. Use a sizing calculator to help you feel more confident in your decision. The calculator takes the square footage of your home and the power of specific appliances that you would like to run during a power outage and estimate which generator can handle it.
Make sure you check the wattage of each appliance that you would like to power with the generator. Putting too much pressure on a generator can have catastrophic results.
Once you have your generator size figured out, you need to look into transfer switches. This device allows for the shift of power from your home's electricity source to the generator within seconds of losing power.
