Experiencing a power outage in your Winder, Georgia, home can do more than simply inconvenience you for a few hours while you scramble for something to pass the time. It can also lead to groceries going bad and other appliances malfunctioning due to an unexpected loss of power. A generator can remedy these issues, but how do you go about picking the right one?
What Kind Do You Need?
All generators are not equal, and knowing what kind you need for your home is the first step in making the right choice. You can choose between home standby generators that can power your entire home and portable generators that can power certain rooms and appliances in your home.
Obviously, generators that power your entire home are more expensive than more localized options. That means the amount that you spend will directly correlate to how much help your generator can provide.
What Size Generator Do You Need?
Just like there are different types of home generators, there are also different sizes. If you’re simply looking for something that will keep your refrigerator cool in the event of a power outage, you don’t need the largest generator option on the market.
However, if you’re looking for something to keep lights on, the TV going, charging your electronics and keeping the HVAC system running, you’ll need a larger generator that can provide more power. If you’re having a generator installed, you need to decide how much you want out of it.
Power outages are a major inconvenience that can not only leave you bored and uncomfortable but can also wreak more havoc than initially believed. At Kovack Mechanical, we can work with you to ensure that you have a backup plan in place should you experience a loss of power. We’ll be happy to assess your particular needs and recommend the right Kohler or Generac whole-home generator for your home and budget.
