If you’re in the market for a new generator, you might want to consider getting an energy audit before making the purchase. We know, there are a lot of misconceptions about energy audits that they’re only for businesses or major buildings and not for homes—but that couldn’t be further from the truth. There are several different types of home generators that could work for you, but your electrical systems might be too much for the generator you’re about to buy. How can you tell if that might happen?
Bingo! An energy audit will give a complete survey of how much energy you consume, as well as what systems are using the most and what devices you might consider not worth powering in the event that there’s a power outage. Overall, you might see yourself saving quite a bit of money after the whole process is finished, rather than get the wrong type of generator fitter for your house to only get stuck constantly calling for generator repair in Hammond, LA.

With the onslaught of thunderstorms coming this week and for the rest of the season, we’re definitely going to see an increase in generator purchases. With the climate changing, we’ve seen weather-related power outages double since 2003 and they’re only getting more severe. You’re lucky you’ve got your portable generator in the garage in case you lose power this season, right?
Well, you might not be as lucky as you think. Portable generators are meant for worksites, campsites, tailgating, and other—less power-intensive—energy needs. If you’re looking to power your whole house for a few days, including air conditioning, from the convenience of your smartphone, then you’re going to want to upgrade to a whole-house generator.
