When it comes to choosing the best battery for a Generac generator, there are several factors to consider. Some of the most important ones include:
Size: It's important to choose a battery that is the correct size for your generator. Measure the space where the battery will be installed to ensure you get the right size.
Type: Generac generators can run on either flooded lead-acid batteries or sealed maintenance-free batteries. Flooded lead-acid batteries require more maintenance but may be less expensive, while sealed maintenance-free batteries are more expensive but require less maintenance.
Cold cranking amps: The cold cranking amps (CCA) rating of a battery indicates its ability to start an engine in cold weather. Choose a battery with a high CCA rating if you live in a cold climate.
Reserve capacity: The reserve capacity of a battery indicates how long it can power the generator in the event of a power outage. Choose a battery with a high reserve capacity if you need to run your generator for long periods of time.
