Generator FAQs

Standby generators are used in the case of a power outage. They are quite literally standing by with their systems always ready to kick in immediately should there be a power failure.

Backup generators, otherwise known as portable generators are not permanent installations. They are only used to provide temporary backup power as needed. A backup generator needs to be started manually in the case of a power outage.

Some generators have a voltage select switch that allows varied voltage selection without the need for changing hardwire configurations. The certified electricians at MacLeod’s Electric can help change the generator output voltage should you need it!
Yes. All portable or backup generators need to be grounded. Modern portable generators are designed with a metal frame around the generator that acts as a path of least electrical resistance.
Portable and backup generators should be tested at least once a month within 30-50% of their maximum load and for at least a 30-minute duration. For home generators, you should hire an electrician to perform a detailed inspection every 6-12 months.
Portable generators can range in volume from 60-90 decibels – measured from an industry standard of 7 metres from the generator. It’s equivalent to the noise level of a common dishwasher or household vacuum cleaner. Cheaper generators will typically be noisier than more expensive models.

In order to determine what size of generator you would need for your home, follow these 3 simple steps:

  1. Make a list of every appliance that you want to power.
  2. Determine the starting and running wattage of every electrical item on your list.
  3. Add all of the values together and this number should help provide a rough estimate for what size of generator you’ll need for your home.


If you’re still unsure, you can call on the certified and licensed electricians at MacLeod’s Electric. We’ll help give you a more accurate estimate and provide you with a free quote for your generator!
