What You Need to Know About Generators & Financing

Generators are a necessary piece of equipment for many businesses and homeowners. They can provide power in the event of an outage, or be used to run important equipment during times of peak demand. There are several generator options available, so it’s important to do your research and find the best option for you.

Generator Types

There are several generator options available to you for purchase. The most common types of generators are portable, standby and whole home backup.

Portable generators are the least expensive option and can be used for a variety of purposes, such as powering small appliances or tools. However, they typically don’t provide enough power to meet the needs of a large business or home. Also within the portable generator family are inverter generators, which are lightweight and quiet, making them perfect for camping or tailgating.

Standby generators are more expensive than portable generators but offer more power and can be installed permanently outside your home or business. They automatically turn on when there is an outage, so you never have to worry about losing power.

Generator Costs & Home Considerations

Determining the cost of your generator can be tricky, as there are a few things to consider. The first is whether you want to go with a portable or standby generator.

  • A portable unit will range from $500–$2000 depending on its size and power output, where
  • Standby generators (ones that connect directly into your home’s electrical system) can range from $2500–$12000, but also require professional installation which can add between $800-$2000 onto your bill, so expect to pay an average of around $4000 for this type of unit.

Once you’ve determined what kind of generator you need and how much it will cost you’re ready to purchase one or start looking at different financing options available.

Generator Financing Options Available

There are a few different ways to cover the costs of your generator purchase including using a credit card, taking out a personal loan from a bank or credit union, using a home equity line of credit, or acquiring generator financing through a Dealer or Electrician with the help of a loan provider like PowerPay.

Each method has its own benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to do your research before deciding which one is right for you.

Generator Financing FAQ

What is a generator?

A generator is a machine used to create electrical power. It works by converting mechanical energy into electrical energy. This is done by rotating a coil of wire inside a magnetic field. The electricity produced can be used to power things like lights or appliances.

Is a generator a good investment?

Yes, a home generator can be a good investment. Backup generators can be a real lifesaver, especially during a power outage. They can also be helpful in cases of natural disasters, emergencies or to help power large appliances during peak demands.

What are the different types of generators?

There are three types of generators: standby or whole home generators, portable generators, and inverter generators.

Standby or whole home generators are permanently installed and automatically turn on when the power goes out. Portable generators can be moved around and are used to provide power for specific devices or appliances. Inverter generators are more lightweight and quieter than other types of generators and produce cleaner energy, making them ideal for use in sensitive electronic equipment.

What is the average cost to have a whole home generator installed?

The average cost of a standby or whole home generator ranges depending on the size of the unit and the features it has. Typically, you can expect to spend anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 or more for a quality generator.

Some factors that will affect the cost include:

  • The wattage of the generator (the higher the wattage, the more it will cost)
  • The brand and type of generator (some are more expensive than others)
  • The features included with the generator (such as automatic start/stop, voltage regulation, wheel kits)
  • Whether you have an electrician, or dealer do the installation or do it yourself

Can I finance a generator?

Yes, you can finance a generator. Home generators are a major purchase, and financing can make the purchase more affordable. There are a number of factors to consider when financing a generator, such as the cost of the generator, your credit score, and the terms of the loan.

It’s important to shop around for the best deal on a generator. There are a number of loan providers that offer financing options, so be sure to compare interest rates and terms before you make a purchase.

How long can you finance a generator?

A generator can be financed for a wide range of periods, but the best loan terms go up to 20 years. This means that you spread out your payments over a period of time, which can make it more manageable for you.

Keep in mind that the length of the loan will affect the monthly payment. So if you need a shorter term, then you’ll likely have to pay more each month. But if you’re comfortable with a longer term, then you can get a lower monthly payment.
