When it comes to choosing a stand-by home generator in South Florida, one of the major factors to consider is the size/power of the generator. Depending on what you are trying to power, and for how long, you will need a generator with a corresponding maximum power production. To determine the size generator you need, you will need to know the wattage required to run the appliances you want. You will also need to know how much power is produced by the types of generators you are considering. For instance, are you looking into commercial generators, residential generators, or portable generators?
Standby generators are not portable, but they are much more powerful than a typical portable generator. The amount of power a standby generator can produce ranges greatly, so consider the type of property you are looking to power and how large it is.
Commercial generators are often needed for office buildings that have a higher power demand such as lots of lights, larger AC units, computers, and other electrical systems. The good news is the large variety of generators on the market allow you to pick out the one perfect for your needs.
How to Determined Required Wattage
Determining an accurate wattage you need from your generator to power your home or business depends on the total service of your home (the maximum amperage needed to power your entire home). You have an option for full or partial coverage in an event of an emergency. It is recommended that you contact a professional for a free evaluation. Either an electrician or a generator contractor will be able to evaluate your property and appliances to determine a target wattage for the generator you should buy.
