Generator For Sale FAQs

If you are seeking a generator in order to provide power to your home, or to keep as a spare in case of a power outage – you want to make sure that the generator you invest in has sufficient power to power your home. With this in mind, we recommend that you opt for a generator between 5,000 and 7,500 watts. This should provide sufficient power for your home.

Concerning which generator you should choose for your home – you cannot go wrong with a standby generator as these will provide more than enough power for your home.

Given the vast array of generators that are available on the market – in order to gain an understanding of how much are generators can be much more complex than initially realised. For instance, if you are seeking a portable generator that is fairly popular, you can expect to pay up to £1000 due to the quality that made it so popular to begin with. Alternatively, if you are seeking a standby generator – you can expect to pay much more due to its power output. 

Ultimately, the price of generators comes down to your needs. To match your needs, you can expect the price to reflect such needs.

Relating to how long does a generator last for, this can essentially be measured with the condition of the unit since your initial purchase. Additionally, other circumstances relating to the longevity of a generator can be the brand you choose, which type of generator you have opted for as well as the size of the unit. 

With this in mind, the selection that we offer at Pleavin Power guarantees that you can see your generator(s) last anywhere between 20 – 40 years. 

The main benefactor for having a generator is the ease of mind that will come with owning one. By this, we mean that should you opt for a backup generator – this will provide additional convenience should a power failure occur. This means that you will be back up and running in no time. 

Granted, the above serves as the major benefit for all generators – although depending on which generator you decide to own have benefits in their own right. For instance, if you looking to host outdoor events across a range of locations – you may wish to go for a portable generator. Doing this will allow you to more than sufficient power for your special event. 

Under no circumstances, do not run a generator out in the open during wet conditions (rain or snow for instance). Should you need to run your generator during these weather conditions, we advise that you look for storage solutions to shelter your generator – doing this will eliminate the worry of potential electrocution.

You may be wondering how a standby generator works, especially during a power outage. This is essentially the purpose of the generator. During a power outage, the engine of the standby generator will start automatically due to an alternator. This alternator will convert the energy of the engine into electrical energy – providing power to your desired location.

If you are seeking a generator for your business, we recommend that you should opt for diesel generators. Diesel generators are great for commercial properties as they require much less maintenance than other generator options. It is worth noting that diesel generators do feature limited capacities concerning the fuel tanks.

The reason why generators from brands differ in price compared to others on the market is ultimately attributed to the quality of the generator itself. For instance, if higher-quality components are implemented onto certain generators – this increases in price. In addition to the components, sometimes you may find that the warranty is much longer compared to other generators on offer.

Ultimately, depending on the price of certain generators compared to others can be attributed to the quality of the offer itself.

Regarding the various types of generators that are available, there is a wide range to choose from. Portable generators as the name suggests are a great choice if you are seeking an easy way to transport your power solutions to various locations with ease. Whereas if you require larger quantities of power to one location – you may find that a standby generator will serve you better. You can also opt for inverter generators if you require them.

On average, you can keep your standby generator operational for less than 500 hours continuously – although we recommend that you do not exceed the 500-hour mark without undergoing an assessment on your generator. With this timeframe, you can rest assured that you are getting the most out of your generator given how long it can remain operational.
