Learn About Home Generators

Before you run out of money to purchase a generator, it’s essential to consider how and where you’re going to use it. Regarding their use in homes, homeowners associations, campers, and construction sites, there are often laws, regulations, and limits. Choosing the right one means you can power the appliance or device you need. Making the wrong choice or using it improperly can, at best, damage the generator or equipment connected to it – and at worst, it can be dangerous, with the risk of fire, electrocution or carbon monoxide poisoning.

Choose a Home Generator

Choosing a generator for home depends primarily on the size of your home and the amount of power you wish to provide. The average house needs at least 5,000 to 7,500 watts to run its most critical appliances. A portable home generator can often get you through a power outage, but some options can power your entire house. If you’re looking for full power, you’ll want to invest in a generator of at least 20,000 watts; this also applies to people with particularly large homes or families, which will use more power than a two- or three-person household.

Types of generators for home

1)Backup generators

A backup generator is permanently installed and wired to the home. These can power selected critical circuits during a power outage or can power an entire home. Backup generators have systems that monitor utility power and automatically start during a power outage.

2)Portable generators

When and where it is required, portable generators supply temporary power. Some things are more portable than others; the word “portable” is relative.
The majority of models have wheels and handles to make transportation simpler, although the smaller ones can be picked up and carried. However, at 100+ pounds, it may take two people to pick them up, load them or move them. Standard outlets on the generator’s front panel can be used to directly plug in appliances, power tools, and other equipment. In addition, many models have a twist-lock plug that provides up to 240 volts that can be used to power household circuits with a manual transfer switch.

3) Inverter generators

Although inverter generators are usually portable, we put them under their own heading because they are technically very different from the other two generators in the way they work. Inverter generators provide 120/240 VAC, like the majority of generators. They produce alternating current like any other electrical current but are then converted to direct current (direct current) and then inverted back to alternating current.

Switching and inversion is controlled by a circuit that acts like a filter, dampening surges and cleaning up the sine (or oscillating) wave of current. The sine wave of alternating current is distorted to varied degrees in typical generators. This is usually fine for most electronic devices, except for sensitive electronic devices such as laptops, tablets, TVs and other smart devices, which can be damaged by current distortion or surges. These devices will last longer on “clean” power and stable voltage. Inverter generators can be much more expensive due to the added complexity.

Important information about home generators

1) Fuel options

Gasoline, the most common fuel, powers most portable generators. However, their infrequent use presents some considerations when using generators as emergency power sources. The first is that when a big, catastrophic storm hits and power is out for days, local gas stations may not be able to keep up with demand, and there may be long lines. The second problem is the infrequent use of backup generators, which can be out of service for months to years.

The gasoline in the carburettor slowly evaporates over time, leaving a gummy deposit that blocks the passage of fuel and makes it difficult or impossible to start without maintenance. Closing the fuel valve will prevent this by allowing the generator to continue until it shuts off, eating up all of the carburettor’s remaining fuel. Over time, gasoline oxidizes or becomes “stale,” losing its flammability. It can also absorb moisture, which can corrode fuel tanks and other metal parts in the fuel system. Regularly starting the generator and treating the fuel with a stabilizer can help with these problems.

Dual-fuel generators can run on gasoline or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), commonly known as propane. Switching between fuels is simple, and you are not tied to the availability of one fuel. However, propane has an even more significant advantage: When kept in storage for a long time, it is quite stable. It doesn’t stale or sticks the carburettor from sitting. Also, some households that use propane for other purposes may already have large storage tanks in the house without having to go out repeatedly to find fuel. One downside of propane is that it has fewer BTUs than an equivalent amount of gasoline. As a result, a generator running on propane will have slightly less power to start and run but will also run quieter than a generator running on gasoline.

Additionally, kits are available to convert a variety of well-known generators to propane operation. Some kits also allow the use of natural gas. These prices vary by the app but start at around $50.

2)  Power requirements

Before purchasing any generator, you should determine the electrical needs of your home and, most importantly, large appliances. Air conditioners, refrigerators, pumps, medical equipment, water heaters, and portable space heaters can be the largest electricity consumers and are most critical during a power outage.

You may find online wattage calculators from many generator manufacturers to assist you in choosing the right size generator for your home. You can also calculate this by finding the wattage rating label on every basic appliance. Many appliances will be labeled “starting watts” and “running watts”. The former is the power consumption when the device is turned on, while the latter is the power consumption when the device is running.

You can multiply the running watts by three if the starting watts are not provided. To generate a margin of safety, add the initial wattages for each device and then multiply the total by 1.5. The average small to mid-sized home uses at least 5,000 to 7,500 watts, so many generators have an output of 7,500 to 10,000 watts.

3) Size and noise

Once you have figured out your electrical needs, the next two primary considerations are the generator’s physical footprint and the amount of noise it produces. Size and sound are important factors because you’ll probably need a generator close to your home, whether you have a little yard or many acres.

The larger generators on our list are approximately 30″ x 30″ x 48″, while the smaller generators are closer to 24″ x 24″ x 36″. In accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) rules, generators must be at least five feet away from openings like doors and windows.

Small home generators are allowed at least 18 inches from exterior walls, but Local codes may differ from the NFPA’s requirements; therefore, you should always check them.

When placing a generator directly outside your home, you should consider the noise level measured in decibels (dB). Most of the generators on our list average 60 to 70 decibels; for reference, vacuum cleaners are usually around 70 to 80 decibels.

4 reasons to get a home generator

1) Electric start

Unlike portable generators, home generators will be ready when your power goes out, and most will even start automatically when they sense that your home’s electrical panel is draining power. Even if they don’t start automatically, home generators often have a remote start feature, which is much easier than the pull cord you might find on a portable generator.

2) Automatic transfer switch

All home generators with an output greater than 5,000 watts must be equipped with an automatic transfer switch (ATS). When the ATS detects a power outage, it automatically switches your home’s switchboard from being connected to the grid to the generator.

ATS also protects the city grid from generator feedback power. Home and portable generators with an output under 5,000 watts usually have a manual transfer switch, which can be inconvenient.

3) Increased power capacity

The most powerful non-industrial generators are those used at home and are often capable of powering an entire home. Portable generators typically range on average from 3,500 to 10,000 watts. Home generators, on the other hand, often have a power output of 10,000 to 50,000 watts or more.

4) Permanent installation

Home generators are permanently installed outside your home, and with features like electric starting and automatic transfer switches, when the power goes out, you can get instant backup power without even having to leave your home. With a portable generator, you have to roll it out of the garage, connect the extension cord, and pull the cord to start it.

In addition, liquid propane and/or natural gas, which can both be permanently attached to your generator, are the fuels used by the majority of home generators. , so you don’t need to worry about going to the store to buy fuel.


There are many factors to consider when choosing the right generator for your home. But when you consider all of the above information, it will be easier to narrow down the right generator type and model for you. If your generator is too noisy, you can opt for a portable one.

generator for home FAQ

First, if you opt for a permanently installed backup generator, you'll need a professional to obtain the required permits and perform the work. They will be responsible for grounding as all standby generators need to comply with local ordinances and/or the National Electrical Code.

Regarding portable generators: In general, if they are powering appliances, tools, or other equipment by plugging directly into a standard outlet on the front of the generator, they do not need to be grounded. If the generator is being used to power circuits in your home, maybe, it's best to consult local building officials for an operator's manual, a licensed electrician, and/or township ordinances -- some local requirements may differ from the NEC (National Electrical Code).

A home generator with a constant flow of fuel and no mechanical problems could run until scheduled maintenance is required. A generator engine needs maintenance, including belt replacements, oil changes, and other similar services, just like your automobile engine does.

Smaller generators are permitted to be at least 18 inches away from outside walls under National Fire Protection Association guidelines. , but you should check with local codes as they may have more specific requirements. A professional installer should know local codes, help you plan the best location for your generator, and obtain any necessary permits.

Although installing a home generator can be pricey, they last considerably longer than portable generators and give you peace of mind knowing that you and your family will be protected during a power outage.

With intelligent power management features, automatic transfer and start, and automatic weekly run tests, home generators are designed to last a long time and require simple, regular maintenance. They are an excellent investment because of their power production and general dependability, particularly if you reside in a region subject to blackouts.
