Power outages can cost you money (from food spoilage) and even be dangerous; particularly during periods of very hot weather. Keep your home secure and comfortable in the event of a power outage by investing in a portable generator.
Though portable generators are less powerful than regular full-sized generators, they are also more affordable and will keep your most important household appliances running in the event of a power outage. They also come in a variety of sizes and wattages, so you can select which is best based on the needs of your home. Portable generators offer several advantages over other kinds of generators:
- Portable generators don’t require permanent installation—though, if desired, they can be secured to a foundation to protect them from theft
- They take up less space
- They are much easier to move, and can even be taken on vacations
- They are significantly cheaper
When the power goes out, a portable generator must be manually plugged in (it is safest to plug it into a manual transfer switch connected to your home’s main electrical panel) and turned on, and you will be able to select which appliances receive power. Most portable generators run on gasoline, but some can also be connected to your home’s natural gas or liquid propane line.
A portable generator offers many of the advantages of other types of generators, while also providing the convenience and portability that comes with its smaller size.
