When it comes to backup power, there are two ways to go.
Portable generators are designed for job sites, camping, tailgating and other mobile activities to power individual items, like plug-in appliances and lamps with extension cords. They run on gasoline, liquid propane or natural gas.
Home standby generators are ideal for backing up your home, automatically starting and restoring power in seconds to critical hard-wired systems like AC, heat, sump pumps, well pumps, security systems and large appliances — whether you’re home or away. They run on your home’s natural or LP gas, so there's no refueling.
A home standby generator keeps your power on during an outage. It's installed outside your house (like an AC unit) and turns on automatically –whether you're at home or away. All within seconds of a power outage, your power will be restored.
A portable generator supplies instant power anywhere, whether you're roofing a restaurant, framing a house or working in the middle of nowhere. Customize it to fit your needs.
