PORTABLE GENERATORS

THE POWER YOU NEED, WHEREVER YOU NEED IT

We offer a selection of portable generators from some of the most well regarded manufacturers in the industry. The benefits of portable electric generators include:

  • Backup Electrical Power for Households – Portable power generators will keep your lights on, salvage perishable foods in your refrigerator, and allow for the continued use of your microwave or electric stovetop for family meals. You can also maintain comfortable living conditions since you’ll be able to power a fan, window air conditioning unit, or electric heater. Certain larger portable electric generators, coupled with proper wiring, may even be capable of powering a household air conditioner or furnace.
  • Backup Power for Small Businesses – Most small businesses simply cannot afford even just a few hours without electricity. An inability to service customers and lost productivity doesn’t bode well for anyone’s bottom line. Businesses that rely on refrigeration, such as restaurants, bars, and markets, are especially vulnerable considering the potential for food or beverage spoilage. Critical health care providers also have a vital need for a backup electricity source.
  • Electrical Power for Recreational Activities – Most people associate camping with a primitive “back-to-nature” experience. Portable generators bring the conveniences of modern civilization to any campsite or recreational vehicle. Campers can still have lights, brew coffee in the morning, store food in a small refrigerator, or use an electric stovetop. Portable power generators are also useful for concert or sporting event tailgating festivities.
  • Electric Supply for Worksite Contractors – Utility power is commonly shut off at many worksites. Having access to a portable power generator allows contractors to use portable lights or tools like nail guns, spray guns, and electronic air compressors.

ARE PORTABLE GENERATORS EASY TO USE?

Operating a portable generator requires little to no technical skills. Follow instructions when it comes to adding the fuel and oil needed to operate the device. Depending on the type of unit you purchase, there will either be a push button or pull start.

ARE PORTABLE POWER GENERATORS SAFE TO USE?

Portable generators have a variety of safety features, including circuit breaker protection to prevent overloads, and spark arrestors for added fire protection.

HOW MUCH POWER OUTPUT IS NEEDED?

It’s important to consider how large of a portable backup generator you’ll need prior to your purchase. Here’s a quick summary:

3,500 watts will typically power fans, a small window air conditioning unit, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, light bulbs, a TV, and small refrigerator.

7,000 watts can power a washing machine, small-to-midsize central air conditioner, freezer, electric range, sump or well pump, saws, grinders, and an air compressor.

10,000 watts will power a large central air conditioner, clothes dryer, and electric water heater.
