- The size of your home.
- The appliances you need powered.
- How frequent the power outages are in your area.
When choosing a generator for your home it is always best to round up rather than down in the amount of power the generator provides.

Backup Generator Installation and Repairs
If your home is without a generator, you may be putting your home and safety on the line. You could save thousands of dollars by keeping your home running with a new or repaired generator, preventing:
Wasted Perishables: avoid refrigerated and frozen food going bad and thawing out, which can be expensive and time consuming to restock.
Need for Shelter: a room for your family could cost hundreds of dollars a night, and in an emergency it can be hard to come by.
Temperature Extremes: a backup generator can keep your water heater and climate control systems operational, meaning that in the winter, your home will stay habitable and you’ll avoid pipes from freezing and cracking.
Flooding: if your sump pump goes unpowered, water may back up into your home, meaning that you will have to pay thousands to clean up, remodel and replace any damaged investments.
Dangers: a well-lit home is a safe home. In the event of a widespread blackout, be sure that you deter any crime or home damage with both your interior and external security systems remaining lit.
