How to Choose the Best Portable Generator

To determine the best size and type of portable generator for your needs, it's essential to consider the wattage needed to power your desired appliances. You can find this information on each appliance's label. 

Add up the wattage of all items you wish to power and multiply the total by 1.5 to account for potential surges. 

This calculation will give you an idea of the generator size required for your unique situation. 

To choose the best portable generator, follow these key steps:

  1. Determine your power needs by listing the devices you want to power.
  2. Calculate the total wattage requirements, including both running and starting watts.
  3. Select a generator size that can handle your estimated wattage needs.
  4. Decide on the fuel type (gasoline, propane, or diesel) based on availability and preference.
  5. Consider runtime and fuel efficiency for prolonged use.
  6. Choose a generator size and weight suitable for your intended use and portability.
  7. Check noise levels and opt for quieter models if needed.
  8. Decide between inverter and conventional generators based on the type of devices you'll power.
  9. Ensure the generator has the right outlets and safety features.
  10. Research the brand reputation, warranty, and budget.
  11. Consider maintenance requirements and eco-friendliness.
  12. Be aware of local regulations regarding generator use.
  13. Explore additional features and accessories as needed.

By following these steps, you can select a portable generator that meets your power needs and preferences effectively.

Portable Generators vs. Standard Home Generators

Portable generators are typically smaller, more affordable, and designed for temporary use during power outages or when electricity is needed in remote locations. 

They usually run on gasoline or propane and require manual setup, including connecting extension cords to the appliances you wish to power. 

While portable generators can provide a quick solution during emergencies, they often have limited runtimes and may not be powerful enough to support all your home's electrical needs. 

Additionally, they must be operated outdoors due to their exhaust emissions, and users need to take precautions when handling fuel storage and refueling.


Standard home generators, also known as standby generators, are permanently installed units that automatically switch on when a power outage occurs. 

These generators are connected directly to your home's electrical system and run on natural gas or propane, eliminating the need for manual setup or extension cords. 

Standard home generators are designed to handle a higher power output, allowing them to support most, if not all, of your home's electrical needs. 

They also offer longer runtimes, providing peace of mind during extended outages. 

However, standby generators come with a higher upfront cost and require professional installation.
