The engines! Air-cooled generators come with engines that use fans to force air across the engine for cooling, while liquid-cooled generators use enclosed radiator systems for cooling, similar to an automobile. Generally, liquid-cooled engines are used on larger kW generators due to the larger engines required for the higher power output.
A standby generator, unlike the portable options, are installed outside of your home and are wired directly to your home’s electrical system. The units usually run on natural gas or propane and will automatically start as soon as any power outage is detected, which is ideal for if you aren’t home when the power goes out. An appealing feature of the standby generator is that when the power outage is over, the unit will shut off on its own.
While a standby generator costs more initially, they supply more reliable backup power and are quieter when on. Also, these units can power much more than what’s possible with the portable unit. If you opt for a standby generator, it’s imperative a licensed and qualified electrician install it since it will be wired into the home’s electrical system.
