How Big of a Generator Do I Need for My Home?
Getting the sizing on your new generator correct is a major step – too small, and you won't be able to power everything you need, but too big and you're wasting money. The first thing you need to do is make a list of all the appliances you want to be able to run through your generator. Generators' power output is measured in watts, so you'll need to get an accurate figure for each appliances' wattage. Many appliances have two different wattage figures:
- Starting watts: What the appliance needs to start up.
- Running/rated watts: What the appliance needs to keep running once it's on.
In the vast majority of cases, the starting watts number will be higher. Once you calculate how many watts you need to run your home, it's best to buy a generator with slightly more power than you need. Running a generator at 100% capacity can both shorten its overall lifespan, and it will typically make far more noise when running at max.
Benefits of Installing a Generator
At Comalli Group, Inc., we make sure you have the perfect generator for your property’s needs. Whether you are looking for a whole-home generator, commercial-sized generator, or a customized, system-specific generator, our team has you covered. We provide a free assessment to accurately diagnose your energy requirements and budget, and plan where the most effective installation set up would be. Additionally, we can support your new generator with new technologies, such as remote monitoring via a smartphone application.
Advantages of installing a generator include:
- Automatically detects power loss: Our team only installs the most advanced generators on the market, which means they will automatically detect a power outage and turn on within moments, helping you enjoy virtually uninterrupted power.
- Access to electricity during a blackout: Your property’s size and electrical needs will be considered when you purchase your generator, which means when a power outage does occur, all your necessary devices and appliances will continue to perform—keeping you comfortable even during a massive blackout.
- Doesn’t need refueling: Instead of fumbling outside in the dark for a gas can, modern standby generators are already connected to your property’s fuel line, which means no need to refuel.
- Prevents damage: Generators do more than keep the lights on. In fact, they can power all of your necessary systems, including sump pumps, refrigerators, HVAC systems, data systems, and phones, and run for as long as you need them, so you stay safe and comfortable even during a prolonged blackout.
- Increases property value: Because of how useful generators are, many property buyers view standby generators as a perk, allowing you to earn back some of your investment.
