Home Standby Generators for Essential Power

Written By: MJ Logan

Small Homes without Central Air or Large Power Requirements

Smaller homes easily get by with less power because they have fewer large appliances. A small ranch home that sits on a slab and uses a window air conditioner requires far less power than a large multilevel home with two or three air conditioners and furnaces

Standby Generators in the 8 kilowatt to 13 kilowatt range paired with the right Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) can supply an entire home or just critical circuits depending on the needs of the homeowner.
