So for the last couple years I have been meaning to buy a generator to add to my family preparedness gear. This storm in the northeast has brought it back to top of mind, so I was hoping the good folks of WakeWorld would have some good insight to share. Here are some thing I need to figure out...

Stationary whole house unit/portable?
What brand?
Dual fuel? Which fuels?
What if I move in 5 years?
Capacity?
Ability to run a heat pump?

I at least want to cover the basics so I need enough power to run the Fridge and freezer, hot water heater, and a few lamps. TVs would be a bonus but not a necessity. Instead of trying to generate enough power for a heat pump, I'm thinking I would be better off to install a gas powered ventless fireplace.

According to the Generac website, I would need 12-15kW if I dont run the heat pump, and 19-25kW if I do use it.

Thughts?
