control the power

The best thing about having a whole house generator is you don’t have to worry about when you will need it.   However, when the moment comes,  and the lights go out you can be guaranteed that you will be ready. However, to be prepared you have to be able to buy the right Generac generator for your home first. For first time buyers this might not be the easiest process but after reading this, It will definitely be easier. Generac has created a reputation as one of the largest manufacturers of  generators and as such offer a wide variety of systems.

There are typically four type of Generac generators that you can choose from. They range from 22 to 48 kilowatts. While you may want to go for the largest that you can get, it is also worth noting that most houses are fitted with single phase 120 or 240 electricity line. It may seem realistic to replace each of the 200 amps that most modern houses are limited to but it would not hurt if you went for the models that have a lower capacity but are still able to supply the whole house with electricity while being gentle on your pockets. However, you can go for the 48 kilowatt generator from Generac if you’re absolutely sure that you need each and every one of the 200 amps.

With that said, Generac produces three series of liquid cooled generators with each of the series having the four models ranging between 22 to 48 kilowatts that you can choose from.
