For Uninterrupted Power, Always!
Whole Home vs. Partial Home Generator. A lot of home generator buyers ask us this question. While to some the decision to purchase a whole generator is a matter of preference, to us it’s a matter of practicality. The reality is that to move up one or two size generators that will power a whole home vs. half a home (or parts of a home) in general is only a few hundred dollars. The cost of install makes up most of the overall cost of a generator installation. So if it only costs a few hundred dollars more to cover your whole home vs. part of your home – it just makes economical sense.
Cost of Operation. Another reason to purchase a smaller generator is that the cost of operating a larger generator vs a smaller makes economic sense. While there is some truth to this statement, the amount of actual cost of natural gas or liquid propane for the short duration of usage is insignificant. While it may add up to $100 per year during a prolonged outage, in most cases, it’s much less.
