How to Choose a Generator for Your Home

When living in Florida, power outages due to weather storms often happen. But which size portable home generator is right for your family? How many appliances do you need to remain up and running? So let’s take a look at the different options available!

When you need a few essentials powered up, the Generac 2.2KW GP2200i inverter generator is perfect for home use or travel needs thanks to its small lightweight form factor and low output rating! Perfect for charging smartphones and tablets when camping or at work.

Essential Appliances

If you need a little more power for a few of your appliances, then consider the Generac IQ3500 inverter generator. This device has more power and can satisfy those needs.

If you are unsure of how much power you require for your appliances, the following can help you calculate the output you require:

  • Kettle: 1200 watts
  • Laptop: 50 watts
  • Average sized fridge: 700 watts
  • Electric water heater: 2000 watts
  • Coffee machine: 1000 watts
  • Electric oven: 1200 watts
  • Toaster: 850 watts
  • TV: 150 watts

With a medium-sized unit, you’ll have the power to run essential appliances such as your fridge and washing machine, TV, and coffee machine. You can choose from 65K watts of energy for these requirements which are best suited with Generac’s GP6500 49ST generator! Its advanced technology offers a 40% increased starting capacity so it will start much quicker.
You’ll get over 10 hours of run time using only 50% capacity. Contact your trusted electrician for more information on the best generator for your needs.
