What Is A Standby Generator?
Many people choose to purchase a standby generator for a variety of reasons. An aging infrastructure, staying prepared for emergencies, and convenience are just some of the reasons they remain popular.
Investing in a standby generator can offer numerous advantages. An emergency standby generator is called “standby” because it powers on when it detects that the main power source is severed.
Emergency stand by generators are connected to the electrical system of a property. They will activate in most cases automatically when power loss is detected. They should not be mistaken for backup power generators.
A back up generator is not usually connected to a property’s power system. They can be used at any point when the primary power source is working. Backup generators can also however be used as a standby emergency power source.
Both options offer their own distinct advantages and can be extremely beneficial.
Purchasing Emergency Generator Sets
There are important factors to consider before purchasing a standby generator set. The most important factors to consider include: fuel source, size, wattage, and connection.
Modern generator sets run on different fuel sources, including: natural gas, diesel, liquid propane gas (LPG), and oil. The best fuel option is generally the one most accessible near your property.
For example. If natural gas lines run underneath the property, a natural gas generator will be the most useful choice. Diesel stand by generators are one of the most popular choices for emergency stand by generators.
It is important to consider how much power you will need including the overall size of the generator. The frequency at which you will be using the generator is also an important consideration.
