A generator gas supply refers to the method by which your standby generator gets its fuel to operate. There are two main options for standby generators:

  1. Liquid Propane (LP) Tank: This is a common choice for generator fuel supply. An LP tank is installed outside your home and filled by a propane provider similar to how you might refill your gas grill propane tank.

  2. Natural Gas Line: If your home has access to natural gas, you can connect your generator directly to the gas line through a meter and regulator. This eliminates the need for refilling a separate propane tank, but requires professional installation to ensure safety.


When would you need a generator gas supply?


You'd need a generator gas supply if you plan to install a standby generator for your home. A standby generator is permanently installed and provides backup power in case of a power outage. Here are some scenarios where a standby generator with gas supply can be beneficial:

  • Frequent Power Outages: If your area experiences frequent or long-lasting power outages, a standby generator can ensure you have power for essential appliances like refrigerators, freezers, sump pumps, and medical equipment.

  • Severe Weather: Storms, hurricanes, or other severe weather events can cause power outages. A standby generator can keep your home powered during these times.

  • Peace of Mind: Even if power outages are infrequent, having a standby generator can provide peace of mind knowing you'll have essential power during unexpected situations.


Here are some additional points to consider:

  • Generator Fuel Type: Standby generators can also run on diesel fuel, but this is less common for residential applications.

  • Fuel Availability: When choosing between LP gas and natural gas, consider fuel availability in your area and possible delivery schedules for propane refills.

  • Professional Installation: Regardless of the chosen fuel type, proper installation of the generator and gas supply by a licensed professional is crucial for safety and optimal performance.
