Generator FAQs

How big of a generator do I need to run a house?

The answer is — it depends. When sizing a generator, it’s essential to consider what you want to be able to run during an outage, budget for installation, and budget for operation. We get into the specifics in this article.

Are whole-house generators worth it?

A whole-house generator is an excellent investment for peace of mind, safety, and security in any disaster, accident, or incident. If you’ve ever found yourself suffering through a night without HVAC or lights or worried about your safety because of an outage, you’ll appreciate what a whole-house generator can offer.

Can you plug a generator into a wall socket?

This is known as back feeding, and while it’s physically possible, it’s a good way to kill someone or destroy something expensive. It’s frequently illegal because an electrical company technician working to get the power back on might be exposed to a live feed from your generator when they expect to be working on a deadline.
