Uses for Generators

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 271

Generators provide power when you are not connected to the "grid" of power lines. Generators come in all different sizes and can be used in many different applications. You just need to select the right generator for your particular use and you can begin enjoying worry-free power, wherever you are.

Uses for Generators

Generators of different sizes and types are used for many different purposes. For instance, some situations where generators are used include:

  • Back-up power for hospitals and other environments where power-loss could be devastating. Some life-saving medical equipment such as respirators and incubators require power and the loss of electricity could be devastating. High-powered industrial generators are used in these situations to make sure that back-up power is available, reliable and able to provide the necessary electricity to run all of the hospital's life saving devices.
  • Back up power for homes. People today depend upon electricity for everything. Those with an electric stove will need electricity for cooking food. Your heating system probably requires electricity, as does your well pump if you have well water. Hot water heaters, ovens and lights all need to be powered by electricity. You may even need electricity to light your fireplace if you have a gas fireplace with an electric starter. Because so many of the essential items in your home use electricity, having backup generators in place has become more common. You can choose between a smaller generator to power only the essentials during a power outage or a full-size generator that will allow you to essentially keep your whole house running when the power goes out.
  • Full-time power for those going off-the-grid. If you do not want to be connected to the power lines for any reason, from inability to get utility hookups on the plot where you want to live to a desire to live a life free from being dependent upon power companies, then using a generator may be the perfect solution for you. Those living off the grid usually use generators in conjunction with other sources of power such as solar power.
  • RV generators for use when living in a mobile trailer while on the road. With RV generators, you can enjoy all the comforts of home but travel anywhere you like.
  • Portable power for camping or for other temporary power needs. A variety of different portable generators are available that you can use for any purpose when you are out-and-about on the go.
  • Generators for construction applications. When a home or building is being built, power is required to operate many different tools and, in some cases, to provide necessary light to work by. Generators can provide that power before utility hook-up is possible.

These are just a few of the many different situations where generators may make life safer, easier or better. Different generators are available to meet these and other power needs, so be sure to do your research, find out what size generator you need and find one that is best suited to your application.
