Purchased a backup power generator from Aurora Generators. I did not know much about whole home backup generators until I found this company. Their website was full of information, photos and videos. Aurora Generators reviews were really good so I decided to contact them. I ended up getting a really small silent diesel generator that is clean and quiet.
Aurora Generators showed me the difference between natural gas, propane and diesel. If I went with natural gas I would be paying twice as much in fuel. I had no idea there was such a big cost savings with diesel. I also did not know that the diesels were rated at 20,000 hours life where the gas I was looking at I'd be lucky to get 2000 hours out of it.
Installation was done by an electrician who installed a transfer switch. Were were shown how to use it so when the power fails we can easily get our home back up and running again.
Aurora was really helpful and I was surprised to find out that they actually manufacture here in York Region. I'm happy to be supporting local business. Hard to find made in Canada products these days.
