Various fuels that can be used to operate a home generator include diesel natural gas (NG) petrol and liquid petroleum gas (LPG). Among various types portable gas models are usually inexpensive. For long-term emergency power requirement consider stationary or standby type of home generators. They are capable of providing continuous power due to the fact that they are connected to an external fuel source for example natural gas supply line. Furthermore they can be started immediately either automatically or by merely pushing a button because it installed in such a way that it is already connected to the house wiring.
Having a generator at home makes a lot of sense. If there are emergencies an natural calamity and the electrical power is out you dont have to worry about your power supply since you can just turn on your generator and you and your family should be good. However having a generator is not always easy. You might have issues with its maintenance and some constraints.
And because medium emergency generators produce limited electricity you will need to figure out how many appliances can be connected to the generator at one time. It is best to avoid powering too many appliances because the electrical surge could pop the circuit breaker connected to the generator.
With the advancement in technology an auto transfer switch is also available that can sense a power outage isolate electrical wiring from main supply and start the home generator unit automatically. Similarly when the power is restored such a system will connect you back to the main line and will cut off the generator. Since the operation is fully automated you dont have to be present to start or stop the home generator. Keep in mind that the typical time of automatic system switching is 10 to 30 seconds. In order to keep working uninterrupted on devices like computers etc. you many need an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) along with the home generator to avoid any data loss.
