Honda Home Generators:
Honda portable home generator line is divided in four distinct product sets: Super Quiet, Economy, Deluxe, and Industrial. Each of these contains a range of products targeted specifically at the needs of that particular area. While some honda generators can be powered with LP or Propane gas, none of the Honda models are designed to be permanently mounted on a stationary base outside a residence or small business. In addition, Honda does not offer a line of larger industrial generators or diesel generators.
Always remember to check the wattages listed on your tools or appliances before using this generator in conjunction with them.
Types of generators:
Generators come in two basic types: standby and portable. There also are inverters, which are not generators but may meet your needs. The source of backup power you ultimately choose will be determined by many factors, including your power requirements.
Portable gas generators:
Portable generators are versatile. You can use them for emergency power at home, for power in remote locations where utility power is unavailable, or for recreational purposes, like boating or camping. Portable generators are fueled by gasoline or diesel and include 120-volt power outlets like the ones in the walls of your home.
A standby generator is permanently installed outside your home or commercial building and wired directly into the electrical system to provide power to some or all of your home's circuits during a disruption of normal utility power.
Standby generators are fueled by liquid propane or natural gas. The number of circuits to which a standby generator can provide power--and the number of appliances you can run on those circuits--is determined by the power capacity of the generator. Standby generators are about the same size as, and look similar to, a standard central air conditioner.
