I need to purchase a generator to run our home. We live in the country so i would like to have enough power to run our lights, Deep Freezer, Side by side refridgerator, pellet stove (only heat source) and cooking stove, hot water heater. Our home is approximately 1600sf. I would like to know if a propane, gas or diesel generator would be the best and size, type, ect. for what I need. Any help will be greatly appreciated as we are one household of the 1 million in California right now without power. Thank you.
