What size generator do you need for your home?
Home Generator Size Calculator
The size of the generator you need for your home depends on the total power requirements of your appliances and electrical systems. A qualified electrician can help you calculate your home's power needs and recommend a generator size that can meet those needs. As a general rule, a generator with a capacity of at least 14KW - 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 - 48KW or more. It's important to choose the right size generator to ensure it can meet your power needs and provide reliable backup power during emergencies. 1000 watts = 1KW.
