There are a lot of causes for a power outage. It might be due to a storm or a very bad weather which caused the power lines to be out. Heavy rains accompanied by lightning and thunder snowfall and ice storm or a very windy weather condition cause power interruption where the trees fall and the electrical lines are damaged. It can also be due to a problem with the power supply in your own place or delivery of supply of electricity is disrupted for some reasons.
Worth noting is the fact that portable generators dont use gas as the only fuel source nowadays so deciding how you want yours to be powered is a decision you will have to make. Though gas powered portable generators do have their advantages. For instance its convenient. Gas is generally available to most people nearby though there are exceptions. You may have other tools around the house that require gas so you might already have the fuel you need to power your portable generator. All you need is a container to store the gas in it can be any size and drive down to the nearest gas station to fill up whenever you need to.
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.
A home generator can allow security systems to operate regardless of how long the local utility power is down. A home generator installation system will give you a sense of security because when the power goes out within minutes the generator will come on and automatically provide your electrical needs. Another benefit for those that have sump pumps is they will continue to run and keep the basement dry. If you have a finished basement you can see the benefit this would provide.
