What is a Gas Generator?
You may already know that a generator provides power by converting fuel, but what is a gas generator, and what types of gas generators exist?
Well, there is more than one type of Gas generator, and the two main types are LPN and Natural Gas. They are not incompatible, and in fact, switching between one type or another could require an expensive conversion kit to be installed. Since conversation is so expensive, it’s a good idea to understand the differences between various gas generators, and which one will work best for your needs. MTS Power Products carries both kinds and provides service as well. Read on to learn how w can help you choose the right Gas Generators.
Natural Gas requires access to local natural gas suppliers who themselves can tap into these resources and properly distribute them. LPN, or Propane, on the other hand, comes in tanks and can be delivered just about anywhere. If you don’t have natural gas suppliers nearby due to a lack of natural gas pipelines or live in remote areas, propane is likely going to be the way to go. It may seem like propane is always a clear winner then, but not exactly. If you do have access to natural gas, it might be beneficial to take advantage of this. Natural gas provides a continuous connection to a source of fuel, whereas propane has to be delivered as liquid stored in tanks. This means that if there’s a delay in your receipt of tanks, you could be without heating or power.
Different types of appliances utilize different connection methods. Different generators can supply electrical based on this as well. Since our concern at MTS is generators, a lot of this is going to be based on availability for you the buyer. If Natural gas is available in your area, consider that regular access to it and its lower cost can be of benefit. However, propane despite its expense yields almost double the energy or power of natural gas, so your yields may be more cost-effective in the long run.
If environmental issues are a concern for you, keep in mind that Propane is the cleanest burning fuel available globally to date. Natural gas isn’t as green but is still far greener than most fuel sources. Usually, you won’t have pollution issues with Natural gas unless there is some kind of severe leak in the pipelines allowing the gasses to vent to the atmosphere.
