The most important cost factor when installing a home generator is how much electricity can it provide to your electrical panel. You can choose to install a permanent generator unit that creates generate enough electricity for your entire home which kicks on automatically, making it feel like there is no difference between your home with regular power or backup power. However, adding a stationary electrical generator unit can be expensive, and cost upwards of $8,000. To cover your basic needs, you may choose to go with a smaller, less powerful (and less expensive ) model that will only power your major appliances.
The level of comfort you desire at a time of an outage will dictate how much power you want from your backup home generator. Running all your electric appliances at the same time will require a electrical generator at or above 20 KW depending on the size of our home. However, if you decide to only run the essential appliances this can mean having a smaller generator to keep your refrigerator cool and your food from spoiling!
