How to prepare for a generator evaluation
Have a generator specialist come to your home to conduct an assessment of your needs and evaluate your site. You should have an active role in the evaluation process.
Here are some guidelines to help you assess the pros and cons of generator options:
|Portable gasoline generator||Lowest price.||Short running time; needs gas tank refilled which may be a problem if you’re away from your home; usually lower power than stationary generators.|
|Stationary (or standby automatic) generator||Permanently hooked in to your house wiring and fuel source; operates efficiently; can supply a whole house; convenience of use.||Costlier than portable generators.|
|Automatic transfer switch||Powers up automatically in event of a power failure, usually in 10-30 seconds.|
|Gasoline portable generator||Always available when stored on property||Generator will need to be refueled frequently; fuel will need to be stored on site; generator will need to be turned off before refueling; no automatic start.|
|Natural gas and propane||Permanent hook-up ensures immediate start-up with automatic transfer switch. Natural gas generators are always stationary.||Not available in all areas; may require higher pressure than currently provided to home;|
Your choice of fuel – gasoline, propane, or natural gas – is best determined by the availability to your house.
If you receive natural gas, then a hook-up to that supply line is the fastest and most cost efficient choice. Your service provider will know to check for the required gas pressure and will advise you on suitability.
A popular option is to select a bi-fuel generator (natural gas and propane), which gives you more flexibility.
Diesel generators are the most efficient and maintenance free of all types. But they are also the costliest option of all.
