​Back when I first started looking into buying a generator for my home, I was overwhelmed. Luckily, I had an ace in my hand

You see, my brother is a mechanical engineer and happily goes full "engineer geek" when it comes to these kinds of things. The more I researched and the more we talked about which ones are the best and for what and why, the longer my notes grew. And the more I learned. 

It later occurred to me just how much I'd learned talking to my engineer brother. I'd compiled a lot of useful information that I'd translated into layman's terminology so it made sense to me. Our reviews will help anyone in the same position I was in back when I first started looking at generators. Reading these reviews of propane generators will save you a tremendous amount of time and aggravation

Having electricity is no longer a modern luxury, it is a necessity. The ability to supply the proper power to your home is something that many people take for granted. But if you live in an area where power outages are common, you know how devastating it can be to go without electricity for even a few days.

Some people get by with small, portable generators, but these are often not powerful enough or fuel efficient enough to run your home consistently when the power goes out.

Uncut Reviews: Dual Fuel & Tri Fuel Portable Generators

A portable generator is a convenient way to take power with you wherever you go, or as a backup power source in your home in case of a power outage. The impact of a power outage of only a few days on our modern lives can become much more serious than a mere inconvenience.

Many companies make hybrid generators that allow you to choose the fuel type that’s best for your situation. There are really two choices. First is the dual fuel portable generator, which comes in combinations of gasoline and propane or natural gas and propane. The second is the tri fuel portable generator, which combines gasoline, propane, and natural gas.

Generator Size: How Much Generator Do You Need?

Figuring out the right size generator you need in a power outage really boils down to two main questions:

(1) which appliances and devices you’ll run, and

(2) which of these you’ll run at the same time.

Before answering these, however, you’ll need to consider if the main purpose for this generator is emergency power at home or something else — for example, for portable power at a construction site.

With this in mind, to answer the first question think of all the devices you’ll want to operate in a short duration outage (1-2 days) and those you’ll need in a longer outage (longer than a couple of days).
