How to analyse what size of generator your need (Kw, Watt or Amp measurements)

How to analyse what size of generator your need (Kw, Watt or Amp measurements)

When it comes to buying a generator there are a lot of things you need to think about. A look at the Generator reviews on Best Generators.org is the perfect place to start because you will be able to find out all the important you need about generators.

Before buying a generator reading reviews will help you discover more about how it works but before you do all that you need to know how what size of generator you need. There are two ways you can do this the first is pretty simple it will be based around the type of generator.

Portable generators are smaller machines that don’t offer the higher power levels of backup generators. It is very easy to tell these two types of generator apart all you really need to decide is whether you want a generator you can take with you to power things like laptops or a larger backup generator that can power your whole home in emergencies.

These two types of generator basically do the same thing but their limits are hugely different. But the size/ type of generator is just the first thing you need to think about there is also the measurement of power.

The power measurement comes in three different forms in most cases which are KW, Watts and Amps. You have probably heard of these terms before but let’s look at them in more detail as a little refresher shall we?

KW – Kilowatts

Kilowatts are 1,000 watts and a common unit of measurement in generators and other appliances. Instead of calling something a 10,000 watt appliance it will commonly be labelled as a 10-kilowatt device instead.

Another term to take note of is kWh which stands for kilowatt hour this is used to describe how much energy an appliance uses in an hour. Take note of both the KW and the kWh measurements on your appliances and the generator you want to buy so you can ensure the generator you buy will be able to power your appliances.  

Watts

Watts are the most commonly used energy measurement although there are many variations of the watt measurement. If you want to ensure your generator can safely power your appliances make sure you examine the maximum wattage of it so you can ensure the generator actually powers it.

Amps

Amps are the last measurement to be aware of when it comes to buying a generator. Amps are used to measure the movement of electrons through a conductor, this is what provides the electric current needed to power appliances. The higher the current the more electrons there will be flowing through the circuit.

So, that is a look at the three main measurements you need to know about when it comes to powering a generator. When buying a generator of any kind make sure you keep a look out for the above measurements it will make using your generator much easier.
