A Backup house generator is an important thing to have to ensure that your house is up and running all year round. The generator ensures that you are least affected by storms or any other phenomena that cause power outages. You only need the generator when there is a power outage therefore its consumption is low.
Depending on size, a backup generator will get certain parts of the house running when it is necessary. For example, the fridge, the HVAC system, and lighting may run on it while the cooker may not. This ensures that the basic needs in the house are well taken care of.
The house generator may be automatic. This means that it is connected to a system that ensures that the power switches automatically from the grid system to the generator when need be. The automation depends on a system that senses the loss of power from the grid system and automatically starts the generator and keeps it running until the grid power is back.
Getting a house generator installed in your house will definitely improve your quality of life.
