DWQA QuestionsCategory: GeneratorsHow Much Is a Generator for a 2000 Sq Ft House?
Pi Team Staff asked 7 months ago
Portable home generators of 5,000-9,000 watts for a 2000 sq ft can cost anywhere between $400-$2,000. If you settle for standby generators of 7,500-10,000 watts, it will set you back a considerably higher $3,000-$11,000 + generator installation service costs ($500-$1,500).  

Factors Affecting the Emergency Power Generator Price

Emergency power systems cost anywhere between $400 and $11,000+. This great variation is because of multiple factors. We’ve already talked about the generator type, so we’ll omit it from this section.   

Power Requirements

Home generators are purchased based on the home’s power requirements, and a 2,000 sq ft home isn’t exactly a small one.  Such a house will require either a strong portable generator or a standard standby generator. In other words, the emergency power generator price in this case will range between $2,000-$3,000.   

Fuel Type

Generators typically have three fuel types:
  • Gasoline: The most common and readily available fuel, but can be expensive and requires regular maintenance. 
  • Propane: Cleaner burning and longer shelf life, but tanks and installation can be costly.
  • Diesel: The most efficient and powerful fuel. Diesel generators can be a bit more expensive upfront, but their fuel efficiency makes up for this down the line.

The Supplier Brand

Some brands charge a higher cost than the actual value of the generator just because of the brand name. Fortunately, not all premium companies charge extra for the brand name. One such company is Precision Industries, where you get your money’s worth without additional or hidden costs.
