Why Buy a Home Generator?

One of the main reasons you should buy a home generator is to never be left in the dark again. Power outages leave your home's most important appliances idle, such as your furnace or air conditioner, refrigerator, and freezer. One way to avoid these inconveniences is with a home generator. During outages, a generator can supply backup power, ensuring your critical appliances and devices continue to function.

How to Choose Between a Portable or Standby Home Generator

Portable generators and standby generators are the two most common generator types for homes. Either type has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, with some of the biggest differences in price and power output abilities. Confused about which one you should buy? Read our guide on portable vs standby home generators.
