Generators can be an invaluable backup in case of power outages, helping prevent frozen pipes, spoilt food and basement flooding, and save lives when medical equipment is required for serious conditions. Before purchasing one, however, you must determine the amount of wattage your generator requires.
One way of doing this is to add up all of the wattages used by appliances, lights and other items during an outage and calculate its total wattage usage. Once this figure has been established, you can determine what size generator best meets your needs; ideally it should be slightly larger than your maximum usage so that it lasts as long as necessary without running out of gas.
