Fixed OR Portable Generator Installation Highwood, IL
When it comes to fixed (standby generators) and portable generators they both perform the same basic task — providing power, but the differences are far and wide when it comes to cost and to convenience.
Most portable generators run on gasoline and but through 10 to 25 gallons per day which depends on the output of the generator in question and the load it is powering. Portable generators produce less power than standby models and tend to be on the noiser side. Portables also need to be wheeled out of storage to be connected to the homes circuit breaker panel when its needed during an outage. Portable generators also must be protected from the weather. These generators generally will not be able to power then entire home. Portable generators are hands down more affordable than standy generators.
Fixed Home Standby Generators
Standby generators are installed in a permanent location outside the home and are insulated with weatherproof housing that keeps them quiet. When the power shuts off to the home, the standy generator will turn on at once, powering everything in the home. These generators also run on natural gas or propane which allows them to operate for days or even weeks on a full home propane tank, or indefinitely when hooked up to natural gas versions. While investing in a standby generator is expensive, if power outages are common in the Highwood, IL area, then well worth it.
