Prevent the lights from going out in your home by installing a whole-house generator in Hanover, MA. The most important factor when buying a generator is choosing the right size. Proper sizing is key to a successful installation and to an efficient system. We recommend that you choose a generator output rating that is about 20% to 25% higher than the peak load. This ensures that the generator will be able to operate more comfortably. It also gives you some breathing room.

Other than the size, you also need to consider the fuel source. The three more common types of fuel sources for a standby generator include natural gas, liquid propane, and diesel. Diesel and propane tanks are typically larger than ones for natural gas. Diesel is easy to transport and store, and these generators typically are more durable. It’s important to consider the efficiency of the fuel sources, their cost and how easy they are to acquire.
