How Much Power Does
Your Home Need in An Outage?
Generally, the bigger the home, the more powerful the generator required to keep things running. This is largely due to heating, air conditioning and lighting needs, which tend to grow in keeping with a home’s square footage. Larger homes also tend to have more individual electronics within.
Major appliances like refrigerators and HVAC systems require large amounts of power, but are vital during an outage. Smaller systems, such as sump pumps and well pumps, should also remain powered to protect against flooding or water loss. Then, of course, there are the conveniences we’ve come to rely on: TVs, computers, microwave, etc. All these items should be accounted for when estimating your home power needs.
Nobody likes being kept awake by the rumbling of a noisy generator. Cummins QuietConnect generators are among the quietest standby power solutions on the market, allowing your family to enjoy peace and quiet while giving you peace of mind.
