Sacramento seems to have somewhat frequent short term power outages. What size generator should I have as a back up for 24 hours use?
You need to calculate how many watts or even kilowatt per hour does your home consume?Sacramento seems to have somewhat frequent short term power outages. What size generator should I have as a back up for 24 hours use?
I think so, but I don't think portable ones have that ability, you're talking the big whole home/property units.Do they make any that automatically start up if it senses a power outage?
I was thinking of getting this one from Costco...https://www.costco.com/Champion-2800W-Running--3100W-Peak-Dual-Fuel-Digital-Inverter-Generator.product.100284958.htmlMake sure to get an inverter generator. They cost a lot more but are much quieter and put out a true sine wave. Not everything will run on a non inverter generator that puts out a modified sine wave which also isn’t as good for your equipment. Did I mention the inverter is quiet? The Champion Duel Fuel 3,000 watt from Costco is nice. It can run on
Propane which won’t gum up the carb. like gas can if not used all the time. It also runs on gas.
