If you're looking for a generator, choosing the right generator is very important. Depending on how you will use your generator, there are different categories to meet your needs. This can include recreation, home standby and construction. The right generator size is the one that is correctly matched to power all the tools / appliances you want to run at the same time. If you purchase a generator that is to big it will not only be more expensive, but will not run as efficiently as the a correct size generator would. On the other hand if the generator is too small, some of your equipment may not give it maximum output, and therefore its lifespan is reduced.

The noise level of a generator is a major factor in determining the right model for its application.  Many places have noise regulations that may impact generator usage, particularly at night. Loud generators are unsuitable for many applications, including camping, powering outdoor events, and caravanning.

All generators are labeled with a decibel rating. For every increase in 10 decibels, the noise level is 10 times more powerful. So a generator that runs at 70 decibels is ten times as loud as a generator that runs at 60 decibels.

Leading generator manufacturers like Honda and Yamaha, use low maintenance batteries on there electric start generator models. These batteries require very little maintenance, but they do require periodic charging. To get the longest service life from your battery, keep it fully charged at all times or recharge it each time you consume about a quarter of its capacity. We recommend that you keep the battery fully charged at all times to achieve maximum service life.

The first thing you need to know when selecting a generator, is how much power will you need, so work out exactly what you will require to power.

A backup generator is essential to have during a power outage, to power lights, heating, cooling, water pumps, and more.  Powering a water pump is particularly important in areas at risk of fires during hot weather, to protect your property, family, and pets. Power outages are increasingly becoming a concern for Australian's during this upcoming summer, and even during spring with this unusually hot weather. It has been reported that as power consumption increases during hotter weather, power plants will struggle to meet demands and power outages are a strong possibility, leaving you without power for hours, or even days.

Solar power is a great idea to run your home, but when the sun is not shining, you batteries will start to loose their charge. The perfect solution to this is to install a back up generator to work in conjunction with your solar system. The Generator Store can offer three honda models for this application. Your back up generator needs to be fitted with a 2 wire auto start, which can then be connected directly to your solar inverter.

It is very important to select the right size generator for your needs. If you purchase a generator that is too small, you will not be able to run your tools and appliances needed, which means you will have a generator that wouldnt do the job. Also overloading your generator will most likely lead to it breaking down as well as causing damage to your tools / appliances. On the other hand, if you purchase a generator that is too big, it will not only be more expensive to purchase, but it will not necessarily run as efficient as the right sized generator.
