It isn’t until the electrical power goes out that many of us realize just how reliant we are on it. Electricity, after all, provides light and powers just about every type of appliance and technology in our homes.
Without electrical power, we’re stuck in the dark, imagining our frozen foods thawing and praying for longer battery life in our cell phones and laptops.
This is where generators come in. Generators can supply enough power to keep our households operating until the electricity comes back to life.
In this section of HomeTips, you’ll find information that will help you make smart choices about emergency electrical generators and other devices that can keep the electric power operating. In addition, you’ll get help with basic set-up, care, and maintenance.
For information about standby generators, which are a permanent, high-capacity version of the more common emergency generator, please see Alternatives to Emergency Generators.
