Briefed buying guide for generators. A lot of generator brands are on sale in the market and in them are fake and real ones. To avoid regrets, don’t just enter the market and pick any generator set. Maybe because you like the colour or it is priced low so you now assume it should be the best pick, NO!

Before buying a generator, there are things you need to consider so as to buy a good one.

This imitations or fake generators may look like or even have the same name as the one you have the desire to buy, but they are not.

Consider These Before Buying A Generator Set

Before buying a generator set you must consider these, so you can buy a good and original generator product.

1. The Brand

Yes the brand, this is the first thing to consider. There are lots of generator brands in the market right now both the new and old names. Of course, you won’t like to spend your money on newbies who you haven’t seen their product before. Check the product brand and also ask your friends on which brand you should go for.

I will advise you to consider these five first

  • Sumec
  • Firman
  • Elepaq
  • Tiger
  • Senwei

2. The Rated Power

KVA meaning, KiloVoltAmpere is the unit of electrical power ie. the more KVA, the more amount of appliances the generator can carry. 1kva equals 1000va, the advisable power unit to buy is from 1.3kva upwards.

3. Home Appliances

Your home appliances matters, refrigerator, TV, ceiling fan, desktop computer, electric cooker, electric iron, Blender, air conditioner, etc all these require a bigger sized generator with more KVA like 3kva upwards some may need 6kva depending on the power of these appliances. But if these you don’t have heavy power appliances that will cause your generator to have a high voltage warning then go for the 1.5kva or 2kva upwards.

4. Budget

After considering all these things, your budget will tell if you can afford them. Depending on the brand, as the Kva of a generator set increases so as the price. This is a range list of generator prices

  • 1.0 – 2.0kva = ₦25,000 – ₦50,000
  • 2.1 – 4.5kva = ₦50,000 – ₦70,000
  • 4.6 – 7.0kva = ₦75,000 – ₦150,000
  • 7.2 – 12kva = ₦150,000 – ₦200,000

Your budget should lie within these four, anything higher should be a big diesel generator up to 800kva

5. Build

Let’s consider the material the generator is made of, the rotor and the stator materials. Wirings should be full copper, not aluminium, consider the materials like fuel tube, the wire cover.

6. Choice

Of course, you must have or make a choice before you buy anyone. Consider buying a generator set of your choice. Do you mind considering

  • Soundproof
  • Key starter
  • Remote starter
  • Wheeled generator
  • Colours
  • Big size
  • Design

Some people check these but that’s choice anyway.

After you must have gone through this five generator buying guide, you can go ahead and make a purchase for your generator set, also go with someone who knows about generator if you think you may make a wrong purchase.
