Generators Make Life So Nice, and Not Just For the Other Guy!
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=MJ_Marks]MJ Marks

Generators come in all shapes and sizes and serve many different functions. Making electricity from a variety of energy sources with a generator is a wonderful thing. The power goes out, no problem, just fire up the generator and power is at the ready. Generators can produce electricity by converting mechanical energy from power sources like steam, water, wind, diesel, or gas. When the energy from these sources undergoes electromagnetic induction they turn into electrical energy using a motor.

The motor is what transforms the mechanical energy from those varying sources, all resulting in electricity. Basically, a conductor passes across a magnetic field producing voltage, that can then be used for powering your normal electric goodies.

There are many types of generators, but a typical type of generator is one that uses common gasoline. This type of generator uses a combustion engine, like those found in other small engine devices like lawn mowers.

It is possible to hook up large fuel supply tanks for extended use as needed. Generators are normally turned on by the standard pull cord method, or by a key and electronic ignition switch. Once on, the generator starts to do its job. They have regular electric receptacles for plugging in other devices: electronics, tools or small appliances.

Having a generator as a back-up power solution during times when the power goes out is a real convenience. It can even be an essential for some users who need certain medical devices to be powered without interruption. The high-end commercial type generators can be connected to a house for automatic backup. These units are the cream of the crop. They can be hard-wired right into your house. Not cheap, but certainly something to consider if you like the idea of never being without power and the conveniences that it provides. [http://www.generators.us.com/]Generators even come in portable configurations allowing power on the go. Think big RV. If you've ever been a lowly tent camper next to someone with a generator running you can understand what it is like to not only have to listen to a generator running, but also know what it is like to be a little jealous of the RVer enjoying the benefits that generators give. If you are like me, you may enjoy camping only if you are deprived of all sorts of creature comforts. You may even sort of disparage those who are able to enjoy all the comforts of home while they are out "roughing it." You know what I mean. Air conditioning, microwaves, heaters, a tv, the cd player, hair dryers and electric shavers. I mean the list goes on and on.

There is a generator for virtually every possible need. Whether you need something portable that can be carried, something on wheels, or something that is fixed and wired in, you are sure to be able to find just what you need. Whether you need propane, gasoline, natural gas, or even a diesel generator, all are available. There are generators for home, work, commercial or recreational use - with a little looking around you will find the perfect one for you!
