When it comes to getting a generator for your home, there are two main options– a portable generator or a whole-house generator. The latter is what we install, but this isn’t the only reason we think you should choose a whole-house system over a portable one. And yes, we do believe that you need a whole-house generator.
This isn’t to say there is anything wrong with a portable system–it’s great for small needs like powering up a cooktop during a camping trip or something else of this nature.
A portable system, however, is not an adequate choice if you want to power up your entire home during a widespread power outage.
A whole-house automatic standby generator enables you to power up all the important parts of your home, from the refrigerator and water heater to your HVAC systems, and even your electronic devices and, if you have them, medical equipment needs.
