Eaton’s new Home Generator Calculator determines backup power needs
By Renée Francoeur
October 27, 2015 – Eaton has announced its Home Generator Sizing Calculator, a “user- and mobile-friendly intuitive, interactive web tool” that allows homeowners and contractors to identify backup power needs. By selecting a generator based on home size, type of power supply and desired household appliances and electronics to be backed up, the calculator provides optional backup power solutions to minimize installation costs, as well as energy saving options to reduce ongoing fuel consumption, Eaton explains.
The web tool also connects homeowners and local Eaton certified contractors, the company notes.
Eaton says its complete line of backup power generators continually monitor connections to the local electric utility and automatically switch to generator power in the event of an outage.
