Pros & Cons
Electricity powers all the devices we use today and if the power is gone a UPS can provide a backup but not for as long as a generator can. A generator will provide power for as long as there is fuel, which could essentially be for days even. Also, a generator can take the load of your heavy appliances such as ACs and fridges.
Some places may be far from the electric grid and you would need a generator to live there. This could be your getaway home that is far from the city.
Power and the self-starting feature
A generators power rating is mentioned in numbers alongside 'kVA', the higher the number the more power a generator can produce. This means it can take on more appliances.
Some generators come with a self start feature that is very useful. As soon as the power drops from the WAPDA lines it will kick in and take over the load. This will save you the hassle of having to start it manually, something that is even more convenient in extreme weather conditions.
Considerations when purchasing
The advantage of a diesel generator is that it is a hardy machine, it will outlast most other kinds of generators. There is the downside of more noise and a larger carbon footprint. The noise can be managed with an option that has soundproofing. These soundproof generators reduce the roar to more of a hum; making a huge difference (your neighbours will appreciate this).
As for running cost, diesel is better than petrol but not as cost-effective as gas.
Which generator you purchase is a matter of your needs, first you need to check what amount of load it would be taking on. Then one can decide on whether they want to spend the extra on soundproofing or not.
The more power a generator produces, the higher it costs. The prices range from affordable to very expensive based on this. There are also differences in price between brands, naturally.
