Generator FAQs

Is a standby generator better than a portable generator?

Yes, a standby generator is typically better than a portable generator as it provides automatic, uninterrupted power during outages and can handle higher energy loads, making it suitable for whole-home use. Standby generators are often safer to use as well.

How often do whole-home generators need maintenance?

Whole-home generators generally need maintenance at least once a year, but it’s recommended to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines, which may suggest more frequent servicing based on usage and operating conditions.

What size generator do I need?

The size of the generator you need depends on your home’s power requirements, including essential appliances and systems. It’s best to consult with a professional to determine the appropriate capacity based on your specific needs.

When should I replace my standby generator?

You should consider replacing your standby generator if it’s over 10 to 15 years old, experiencing frequent breakdowns, or if repair costs are becoming excessively high compared to the value of a new unit.
