Home Power

Finding the right emergency backup generator in case the power goes out in your home will really help your home run smoothly whether it is powered by gasoline, diesel, or propane fuel types.

Knowing your specific daily power requirements for your home or the power consumption of the average household, will assist you in your search to find the right generator for your needs.

Your fuel source will dictate price, noise level, cooling, and lifetime operability before service is required.

Fuel

Gasoline, Diesel generators are more prevalent for home use but the shelf life of both are limited to about 1 year. Propane, has a extremely long shelf life. It is available when you need it. Natural gas is the cheapest and readily available in most homes, unless a natural disaster breaks natural gas lines.
