How important are the size and weight of the generator?
Smaller and lighter devices are easier to move to the required location from the area where they are stored. This can be quite an advantage in case of an unexpected blackout. At the same time, factors such as tank capacity, engine, run time and wattage are the most important ones that you need to focus on. If a model meets your requirements based on the factors but isn’t necessarily small or light, you shouldn’t hesitate to get it.
How do rated wattage and surge wattage differ?
The surge wattage is produced for a short period of time, it is the peak wattage which the portable generator can produce, it is reached when the unit is started. The rated wattage is the continuous operating wattage, it is the measure which you need to focus on when selecting a generator. You have to ensure that it will power all of the appliances in your home which you can’t go without. It’s important to define your requirements precisely before you look at hiring a generator.
Should I hire a generator which runs on propane? Is it more reliable?
Propane is usually cleaner to run compared to gasoline. Usually, it can increase the device’s run time and in some cases, it can even double the run time. Another benefit of using such a device is that spare propane is more easily found in the typical home compared to gasoline. For example, you can connect the hired generator to the propane bottle for a barbecue. The main problem with running hired generators with propane is that it cannot start the engine when the temperature gets too low. Still, in this situation, you can have the engine start on gasoline and then switch to propane.
Where should I set the hired generator?
The device must be set outdoors when it will be used. You’ll need to position it away from doors and windows so that the exhaust fumes do not get inside of the house. This is extremely important since the produced carbon monoxide gas can cause serious poisoning. One mistake to avoid is placing the device inside of a garage with the door open. This could also lead to an accident; you also need to ensure that the device will be protected from moisture, rain and snow. It’s best to set your hired generator in a dry enclosure with effective air circulation.
Which home appliances can I power with my portable generator?
This all depends on the wattage of the device and appliances that you’re trying to power. You have to make sure that the total wattage of the appliances, which are powered with the use of the hired generator, does not exceed the maximum wattage. Otherwise, the circuit breaker of the generator will stop it automatically. It’s always best to do the math well in advance and figure out which appliances you’d want to use during a power cut and ensure that they can all be powered by the hired generator.
