We would rather help you build a UPS system that is sized right for you. We know you are able to do this, and you just need a simple checklist to follow. Each of these UPS Systems is built by you from off the shelf parts. Make sure to read each manual and follow all safety procedures.

1. Size the loads.
First things first, you have to know how much power you use, how often, and so on. Buy yourself a Kill-O-Watt and let the tool do your homework. With the numbers, you can buy what you need, not more. The $40 for a simple power meter will save you hundred in oversized equipment, or overworked battery replacement. Click here to buy a kill-o-watt now.

2. Size the Batteries (1st time).
With the information from all your loads, you know how much, power you consume. With this information, you can adequately size the gas tank.

If you are looking for hours of backup, on 110 volt loads, under 20 amps, you will be good to go. On the other hand, should you want days of uptime with a power failure, these numbers are going to scare the wallet from your pants. We suggest you move on to step 3.

3. Admit it now, you aren't just looking for a battery backup.
You need a complete power solution. If you admit it early, it will save you thousands. When you start to supply yourself with the power you require, you will choose systems that do so properly, or retrofit elder electronics. Adding solar panels to your home will bring in DC power generation (solar panels), inverters, installation and wiring. If you buy a battery enabled inverter, which costs a few bucks more, and a few batteries, your home now has a battery backup. To see full size starter UPS systems for your home or office, click here. To add an electric start, natural gas generator is only $5,000 more, installed. When your freezer has the power to keep cold, you save thousands per outage. Watching the game uninterrupted by the utility service work is priceless.
