Which Generator Is Right For Me?
Choosing your back up generator can depend on a variety of factors including the power output you require and the engine size – these will depend on your individual needs such as size of building and level of capacity that you want to run it to.
One aspect you can consider is the fuel that the generator will run off – the most popular types are petrol and diesel and they have similar characteristics to that of a car engine. There is a wider selection of petrol based generators available and they are cheaper to purchase up front but the diesel models are generally more efficient and last for longer periods of time.
Choosing the right generator can seem like a difficult task so speak to an expert who will be able to provide you with a full breakdown of your requirements and help point you in the right direction.
