The different types of generators are usually broken into portable and household. Portable generators are easily moved as they normally have wheels and/or are light enough to carry. A household generator normally is too heavy to carry and can be set on a pad. The household generator usually produces much more electricity and may be permanently wired to the home.
Picking the correct size generator can be tough. You want to figure out the wattage of all the most necessary appliances and electronics you need. Each appliance should have a sticker that tells you how much continuous wattage is needed to power it. You have to be careful as some machinery, tools and pumps have a startup wattage that can be 2 to 3 times the continuous wattage. Make sure to be safe and increase that number by a couple hundred watts to have a little room to power other small electronics. A generator will be rated with a running and surge/peak wattage.
Additionally, the higher the wattage output of the generator, the more fuel it will consume. If you get a 4500 watt generator and normally only use 2000 watts, you will be using a significantly higher amount of fuel than if you just got a 2300 watt generator.
There are also many travel trailers and motor homes that come with built-in generators, if not, they can be purchased for a reasonable price. Like most things, there are varying price levels. The price normally depends on the electric output, the noise level, the weight, and the reliability.
