How Do I Choose a Generator?

A generator is a big investment, both in terms of cost and size. The type of generator you choose will depend on the size and power requirements of your home as well as your budget, so you need to carefully consider your needs before deciding on a system. 

Here are a few factors to consider when determining what type of generator you want for your home:

  • Type of generator: You’ll need to decide if you want a portable, diesel, gas-powered, inverter, or standby generator. 
  • Capacity: Each type of generator produces a different amount of power. You need to select a system that is capable of running all of your essential appliances and systems. 
  • Ease of use: You should figure out how easy each generator is to set up and operate. You may want to select a more user-friendly system to make maintaining power during outages less stressful.  
  • Cost: Consider the cost of each type of generator, as well as the cost of fuel. 

Our expert team at Colwell Electric is ready to help you choose the generator that best meets your needs. We sell and install all types of generators, including residential generators, commercial generators, and industrial generators. We also provide maintenance and repair services for existing generators.

Why Hire an Electrician to Install a Generator?

Installing a generator is not a do-it-yourself job. The process involves connecting the generator to your home’s electrical system as well as anchoring the generator and connecting it to your fuel supply. The installation needs to be done correctly in order to ensure that your generator works as it should. A professional installer will also make sure that your generator meets all code requirements for your home.

What Are Some of the Benefits of a Generator?

Having a generator can be a wise investment for your home, providing numerous benefits in various circumstances. 

Here are some key advantages of owning a generator:

  • Continuous power supply: A generator ensures that your essential appliances and systems stay powered during blackouts, allowing you to maintain comfort and functionality in your home.
  • Peace of mind: With a generator, you can rest assured knowing that you have a backup electricity source. Your family will never be left in the dark. 
  • Emergency preparedness: A generator is an essential part of your emergency preparedness plan. It helps you remain self-sufficient and provides electricity for communication devices, lighting, refrigeration, and other vital needs during natural disasters or unforeseen emergencies.
  • Protection of electronics: By using a generator, you can safeguard sensitive electronics and devices from potential damage caused by sudden power surges or fluctuations during power restoration.
  • Safety and security: A generator helps maintain home security systems – including alarms, cameras, and interior and exterior lighting – ensuring the safety and protection of your property and loved ones during power outages.
  • Comfort and convenience: With a generator, you can continue to use essential appliances like refrigerators, air conditioning, heating systems, and lighting, maintaining comfort and convenience even when the main power supply is unavailable.

A generator provides peace of mind, security, and convenience, making it an asset for any homeowner. Contact our Houston residential generator experts to learn more.
