Which Type of Generator Should I Choose?
At Hi-Rise Electric Corporation, our team can help you choose which type of backup generator is appropriate for your home or business needs should there be a loss of electricity. You may want to consider these features when choosing a generator:
Portability: Portable generators last for several years and are fueled by gasoline. Extension cords or appliances can be plugged into this power source. Permanent generators have a longer life expectancy and run on propane or natural gas. They are also useful for longer-lasting power outages.
Size and Power: There are many different types of generators that vary in size and amperage. The amperage of a generator is the strength of the electric current in amperes. Our technicians can help you decide the size and power of the generator that you require. Which generator you choose will depend on whether you want to restore the full function of your building’s electricity or just need a water heater and a few lights.
Automatic or Manual: Some generators will power up automatically when the power goes out. They ensure that the appliances you need powered are on even if you are not home. Unlike automatic generators, manual generators require someone to turn the generator on.
