People often get confused between choosing an inverter and generator. We will help you to decide which one will be the best for you by bringing the good and the bad things of an inverter and a generator. Let us compare both on various parameters below to make things easier for you to understand:
If you judge an inverter with a generator on the basis of noise. You will certainly find inverter the best. H loud noise of generators is sometimes unbearable. Inverters come with special sound dumping technology, unlike generators. There are also some silent generators but the sound is dumped because of the cabinet that comes with it. This makes the size of the generator big and sometimes the acoustic cover on the generator is not that effective.
Generators require more maintenance than the inverters such as daily oil refilling and occasional rebuild. On the other hand, an inverter doesn’t require daily maintenance. You will have to look after your inverter’s maintenance once in two months. The higher capacity of the generator the higher the fuel refilling but your high capacity UPS doesn’t demand such daily refilling. The charging of UPS is automatic when power available and you don’t need to worry about it.
- Size and portability:
Many of the inverters today are easy in weight and allow great portability. Whereas, the traditional generators are heavy and bigger than the inverters. The generators often require wheel and metal frames to move. Hence the generators lack in portability factor that you can get from light inverters.
- Fuel efficiency:
Run time of the generator depends on the size of the fuel tank. Moreover, the generators run at the same speed whether the power is required or not. On the other hand, you can adjust the load requirement on the inverter. This way you can say that inverters are more fuel efficient than generators.
You will find the generator price less than the inverter price in the market. This may sound generators more pocket-friendly. But the maintenance required for the generators eventually makes them generator costlier than the inverter.
Now when you know all the goods and bad of an inverter and a generator it’s up to you to decide which power generating appliance will be useful for you and which not. Make your choice today!
