You can avoid blackouts in your home during power outages by using residential generators. These generators are essential to continue the usage of your important electrical appliances and devices like air conditioners, refrigerators, aquariums, computers, and lights wherever they are necessary.

There are two types of generators available in the market one is portable the other is stationery. You have to make a choice. If you are an environmentalist and want to avoid pollution then you may use eco friendly generators. Both of these generators run on natural gas, diesel, gasoline and LPG. Portable generators are generally the cheapest, which run on gasoline and have a short run time.  You also have to be home to get them started when the power goes out.

Stationer generators provide a continuous power supply as they are hooked up to an external fuel source, for instance an external gas line. Portable generators can also be attached the same way by that means the running hours can be extended.

While choosing your residential generator, things you must consider should be wattage and price and how long you would be needing emergency power backup, fuel availability, convenience of use, and safety.

Also, you should consider whether or not you will need to power the whole house or a few mission-critical select circuits.

If you have the money to power your entire house then you should consider a whole house generator.  Otherwise you must stick to a few areas with the portable type of generator.

Over all you should choose a residential generator, which suits you, your home and your pocketbook. Also access that you need it for short-term or long-term blackouts. Remember that there is more to buying a residential generator than just it’s price. It protects your home as well as adds value, so contemplate it as a very essential investment.
