Check the labels that are on your appliances, lighting, and equipment that you want to connect the generator to. Many appliances have power labels on them. Make sure that you are aware of the amount of power that will be able to operate all you equipment.
The generator that you select must produce more power for all your needs, if it does not you must have a strategy to stagger the times at which you operate the equipment. If you can't determine the total power that you need, you don't have to worry if you are not stingy or on a tight budget just hire an electrician.
