Power Generator Buying Guide

Whole Home

Installing a whole house power generator gives you the peace of mind knowing that if a sudden storm or power outage occurs, you and your loved ones will be able to carry on as usual, with minimal disruptions to your lives. When there are elderly residents in the home or young children, this peace of mind becomes less of a luxury and more of a necessity. So in order to make sure you are prepared, you first need to choose the right Generac power generator for your home. For first time buyers, choosing a whole house generator may seem daunting at first, but at Assurance Power Systems we always try to provide our customers with as much information as possible so they can make smart, informed decisions when speaking with our experts.

At APS, we sell Generac brand generators because of their longstanding history as one of the largest and most trustworthy whole house generator manufacturers. Generac produces three series of liquid cooled generators that range from 22 to 48 kilowatts, and though you may be tempted to purchase the largest one right off the bat, you may find that our experts often advise against it. While it may seem realistic to replace the 200 amps that most modern houses are limited to, for budget conscious customers it can be beneficial to have a lower capacity power generator installed that can still provide your entire house with electricity, while not breaking the bank. For customers who know they want their homes completely powered with no exceptions, we certainly have power generators that can get the job done.

Commercial Power Generators

Commercial power generators are best suited for three-phase electricity applications, such as the ones in restaurants, medical facilities, banks, and other commercial buildings. The very high voltage of these generators would more than likely overload a home and fry everything plugged in. If you represent a commercial entity and are interested in backup power solutions, you can learn more on our commercial and industrial generators page.

Generac: Quiet Source Series

While the initial price point on these models is higher, many customers find that they are more than worth the money. While a typical home power generator’s motor runs at 3600rpm, these generators run at half that speed. This translates into less fuel consumption and reduced wear and tear, which means lots of savings for you! When you consider the savings on fuel and maintenance costs, investing in a Generac Quiet Source Series generator could be the right move for you.
