There are a wide variety of home generators to choose from so here are a few guidelines to follow while your looking for the best value. Select a brand that has the features you need at a price you can afford.
Look for pre-wired, pre-packaged solutions, that extend your value even further by making the generator system the absolute easiest to install.
Make sure the generator has an industrial grade engine that is specifically designed for the harsh rigors of standby power, with easy motor starting capability and a enclosure design to protect your generator and your investment.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
