What Size Generator Do I Need?
The size of the generator you need for your home depends on the total power requirements of your appliances and electrical systems. Our electrical experts can help you calculate your home's power needs and recommend the right generator size.
As a general rule, a generator with a capacity of at least 14KW to 22KW can power essential appliances like refrigerators, sump pumps, and lights in a typical home during a power outage. However, larger homes with more appliances or specialized needs may require a generator with a higher capacity, such as 24KW to 48KW or more. Remember that 1000 watts equals 1KW.
