Portable Generators for Home Provide Reliable Backup Power for Your Residence

Typical Portable Generator Outlet Panel
How ready are you to protect your home and family during the next blackout? You know CPR, have an emergency 72 hour kit, and have practiced your fire escape routes, but do you have emergency power? Natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornados, earth quakes, and floods can put communities out of power for days, even weeks. One fender bender near a vital power line can knock power out in your neighborhood for hours. Many families are now investing in portable generators for home use as the next stage in their comprehensive emergency preparedness.

Sometimes It's Necessary To Employ An Adapter In Order To Use A Non-Standard Outlet - It May Even Be Necessary (And Frequently It's Also Preferable) To Manufacture A Custom Cord (Something That A Seasoned Technician Can Do In About Ten Minutes)

It Is An Established Fact That Utility Interruptions Are Increasing In The United States

Shown Are A Pair Of Yamaha 2000-Watt Inverters Being Operated In Parallel - Most Inverter Manufacturers Now Design Their 2000-Watt (Or Similarly-Sized) Units To Accommodate Parallel Operation For Better Flexibility And Output
Research recently published by the University of Minnesota revealed that power blackouts have increased 124% in the USA over the past 10 years. One hundred and twenty four percent. That was a jump from 41 outages between 1991-1995 to 92 outages between 2001-2005. The often discussed smart power grid, a futuristic, dynamic system that could handle the load the modern world puts on our infrastructure, is years away from being built. Emergency minded families are not waiting. They are installing backup power solutions today.

Emergency Preparedness With Generators

Using inverter generator technology, electric generators for home create a non-fluctuating power source of 120 volts of electricity, the type of power you need for today's appliances. By transforming standard alternating current (AC) output into non-fluctuating direct current (DC), then inverting the DC power back into a non-fluctuating 120 volts of AC, these generators create power that is perect for electronic gadgets and power tools. What this means for you is that a 4 horsepower generator can easily power your refrigerator, coffee machine, hair dryer, and dishwasher while you watch TV, or it can power your home appliances while you are camping under the stars far away from home.

This Small Portable Probably Features In The Neighborhood Of 2500 To 3000 Running Watts

Sometimes An Application Can Benefit From Even A Modest-Sized Portable Generator

This Is A Power-Inlet Box Installed On The Exterior Wall Of A Residence. The Power Inlet Is Hardwired To Your Manual Transfer Switch. A Cord Is Then Run From The Generator Outlet Panel To The Inlet Box - Usually A More Convenient Method Of Hookup Than Extending A Cord From The Generator Outlet Panel To The Transfer Switch
The seemingly small 1.4 horsepower electric generators for home can run for 11 hours on less than half a gallon of fuel, and 4 horsepower generators can run for up to 15 hours on only one and a half gallons. Backup power was never so fuel efficient. Just keep in mind that appliances that generate heat will draw more power and therefor use more fuel. However, the lower horsepower engines will be just right for your home needs. The higher horsepower engines can be considered for construction and small business needs, but also will be great for family reunions in the park. Our lightweight, portable generators can be brought to where you need them, and will provide home convenience no matter how far away you are from home.

Never Take Electricity For Granted
How 'Bout This Little Subaru?

Steady power is essential during emergency or non-emergency outages. The same generator that can run a TV on the prairie can be pulled out to aide your family during a natural disaster. You need a quality backup power source to rely on. Give your family the electricity they need to maintain a high quality of life away from home for recreation, or at home when the local power company lets you down.

Home Appliances Can Be Connected Directly To The Generator's Outlet Panel; On The Other Hand, Utilizing A Manual Transfer Switch Allows Entire Circuits Or Rooms Of A Residence To Be Powered (While Eliminating The Need For Multiple And Often Lengthy Extension Cords)
