Today we wanted to talk a bit about Backup Generators, and why as a business or homeowner in south Florida it’s crucial to have one of these important pieces of hardware on-site, and functioning properly.
In order to properly answer the question ‘what is a backup generator?’ we first need an understanding of what a generator is. A Generator is a semi-mobile, gasoline or natural gas-powered motor system that is designed to convert fossil fuels into electrical energy that can be used by anything from small appliances or devices such as a mini-fridge or a phone charger, up to and including being the primary source of power for an entire installation. Generators play a key role in many important facilities, particularly Backup generators. A backup generator is not designed to be the primary source of power for a location. Rather, in the event of power loss whether sudden and unexpected or routine for some kind of maintenance, a backup generator will provide power temporarily when the normal source is lacking. The importance of having a backup generator can range from a personal desire to maintain luxury amenities, all the way up to serious life or death situations.
For a location like a hospital- the above statement is very true. Hospitals are taking care of people that cannot manage their health conditions on their own. If a power failure occurs, hospitals usually have many Backup Generators on-site to keep things running and provide safe, effective care to their patients. In south Florida, we are often prone to violent storms and even hurricanes during that season which creates power loss issues. this occurs often enough that having a backup generator for your home or business is basically a must.
