Generator FAQs

We know generators and can help you find the answers to your questions.

What are the most common uses for a generator?

A portable generator is a gas or diesel-powered device which provides electrical power. The engine turns an alternator which creates usable electricity up to a certain level of wattage. Users can plug electrical appliances or tools directly into the generator's outlets.

What are the differences between standard portable generators and a generator with Inverter technology?

Mi‑T‑M inverters produce commercial quality AC power for sensitive electronic equipment. In addition, Mi‑T‑M inverters are smaller, quieter and more fuel efficient than standard generators.

Note: Mi‑T‑M's portable generators are designed to output the highest power available and are therefore, not recommended to operate sensitive electronic equipment.

How do I find the right size generator for my needs?

To find the right size generator for your needs you will first need to determine the power requirements you are looking for. To determine the right size, add up the total watts of all lights, appliances, tools or other equipment to be connected to the generator. Check the nameplates to determine wattage. If wattage is not shown, but amps and volts are given, the following simplified formula may be used: AMPS x VOLTS = Watts

Once the total # of watts are determined multiply that by 3. This will calculate the approximate start up wattage needed, sizing the generator for your needs.

Is it safe to run a generator indoors?

NEVER use generators indoors, including homes, garages, basements, crawl spaces, and other enclosed or partially enclosed areas, even with ventilation. Opening doors and windows or using fans will not prevent carbon monoxide build-up.

ONLY run generators outdoors and away from air intakes.
