There is nothing worse than a big thunderstorm knocking out power for your entire Sacramento home. The disruption of power for substantial lengths of time can occur at any time due to a number of reasons. Having emergency backup power is not only essential for commercial establishments, but also in Sacramento homes to run much-needed appliances like lights, refrigerators, heaters, air conditioners, etc. Also, you need to keep your food cold and frozen in your refrigerator.

There are basically two types of generators that can be used in an emergency: portable generators and permanent standby generators. The main difference between the two is their output power and price.

In times of emergencies, portable generators provide the most economical way of supplying back up power. Appliances are directly plugged into the generator using the recommended extension cord or alternatively are connected to the home wiring system using a transfer switch. The generators come with an electric start or a pull start and loaded with many other features including the GFCI receptacles.
