Home Generators vs. Commercial Generators

Joseph Coupal - Friday, June 29, 2012

There are important differences in generators that people need to be aware of. Often people have no idea what type of portable generator they need. There are important difference in generators designed for personal and commercial use.
Residential generators are used mostly as:

  • As Emergency backup in power outages to run appliances, and
  • For recreational events like camping or tailgating
  • Typically, personal use generators run from 1000 to 8000 watts of output, and this is one of the most important considerations.
Commercial generators are most often used:
  • To run power tools on job sites where electricity is not available.
  • Power cords are more likely to be used with commercial generators
  • Commercial generators are used more throughout the year and for longer periods of time
  • Typically, commercial generators run from 3000-17000 watts of output.
But in commercial generators, the biggest concern is output, reliability, durability and ease of maintenance along with a larger fuel tank.

Watch the following video from Generac generators. For information, purchase or service of your generator, contact J&J Small Engine Clinic.

Portable Generators can Help You be Prepared this Winter

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 07, 2011

Remember Hurricane Irene? We new we were going to lose power in North Attleboro but there wasn’t a generator to be bought or rented in the state. Be prepared for the upcoming New England winter. Buy yourself and your family a Generac portable generator.

Power. Our lives depend on it. From everyday necessities like heating, cooling, refrigeration and lights, to daily essentials like cooking and laundry. Long winters cause power outages that seem to last longer and longer. Say no to unpredictable weather and unforeseen outages with the most trusted name in residential standby power. If the power ever goes out, your Generac portable generator goes on - automatically - protecting you and your home 24/7.

Portable Generators
Get power when and where you need it, no matter where you go. Generac’s rugged, dependable portable generators are designed to deliver power wherever you are—from tailgate parties to construction sites. With sizes up to 17500 watts, you can take your power with you wherever you need it.
