Gasoline Powered Generators

Every home should have an electrical power generator, especially if you live in storm-prone areas.

I happen to live in an area where power outages are rare, and seldom last more than a few minutes. However, we did have an earthquake that killed our power for three days, and the generator kept our refrigerator food fresh for that time. We shared our power with a neighbor to keep their food fresh, also.

I have family that live in ice-storm country where, at times, their power has been out for weeks.

We have a fairly small, 1600 watt gas generator, that we also use for RV camping, so we do get more use from our generator.

If you shop, there are a number of inexpensive gas generators that would be capable of powering most home appliances. For instance, my 1600 watt generator will power a microwave oven, and/or a refrigerator, and/or, toaster, and/or blender, and/or hair dryer, and/or power equipment, etc.

Generally, generators are rated according to their power rating. A 2000 watt generator has less power capability than, say, a 10,000 Watt generator, and the price is usually higher. Generators also have a “peak power” rating, which is also important. Some types of electrical equipment requires extra power upon start-up, and then settle into the rated continuous power requirement. For instance, my generator has a peak power rating of 2,000 watts, and a continuous power rating of 1,600 watts.

Most household appliances, and electrical tools, have labels indicating their power requirements, which you can use to determine how large a generator to purchase.

If you are handy, a gasoline generator can be converted to use other fuels, such as propane, or natural gas, etc.
