Generator Buyers Guide: Types of Generators

There are two main types of generators: portable and standby. Each is designed with different benefits and options to best fit your home’s needs.

Standby Generators

As a more expensive option than their portable counterpart, standby generators offer more powerful output and a longer lifespan. Standby generators are permanently installed and wired into your home’s electrical system. These generators are fueled by propane or natural gas and start automatically when the power goes out. A professional-installed standby generator eliminates the frustration and inconvenience to your home during a power outage. Because they’re permanently installed, standby generators require annual maintenance by Expert Air to keep them running correctly. If you’re considering a standby generator, be sure to factor in the cost of professional installation by Expert Air.

If you live in an area that experiences severe weather conditions, it’s a good idea to have a standby generator installed. That way, if your power goes out, you won’t have to worry about being without electricity. Medical device electrical failures, refrigeration issues, and electrical damage are a thing of the past with a permanently installed standby generator. An Expert Air-installed standby generator quickly powers on after a power failure is recognized. They provide security to your family and are easy to use. Elite Air can recommend the best standby generator for your family as the best low-maintenance option.

For businesses, a power outage can mean lost revenue and productivity. That’s why a standby generator is so important to benefit your business location. Expert Air can keep your business up and running, even during a power outage. Don’t delay; schedule your generator installation consultation today!

Portable Generators

Portable generators are less expensive than standby generators and can be used for various purposes, making them a good choice for many homeowners. Homeowners can take their generator with them to their weekend cabin retreat, to a football game, or utilizing to run small appliances during a power outage at home. Portable generators are typically used for powering tools during home improvement projects or running appliances during power outages. If you need a generator for occasional use, a portable generator is a good option. Expert Air can help you choose the right portable generator for your needs and budget.
