Generator Sales and Installation Homeowners Can Rely On
Power is an essential utility in the modern home. Electricity powers everything from the lights in the living room to the computers that keep us connected. As demands on public power grids increase, brownouts and blackouts are becoming increasingly common. Our generator sales and installation teams know this and are eager to help homeowners select standby generators that will keep their home powered up and connected for as long as it takes to resolve the problem. We are equally keen to help our clients maximize their unit’s efficiency so that it will deliver affordable, reliable power for years to come.
Maximizing Efficiency on Your Standby Generator
It is vital to position the generator away from irrigation systems, downspouts, and any standing water. Similarly, the generator should be positioned with at least 18″ from the physical structure and have at least 36″ on the front and sides from fences and shrubbery or flower beds.
It is also crucial to ensure that the intakes and exhaust louvers are clean and free of debris. Keeping foreign matter out of these ensures proper air flow and prevents damage to the unit.
One of the most important factors homeowners should monitor is fuel integrity. Every component within the fuel system should be tight and free of leaks. When signs of corrosion appear on the regulator, fuel lines, etc., the parts that are corroding should be promptly replaced. Likewise, it is important to monitor the engine oil level and replace the air filter regularly.
New Features Make Generac Systems Ideal for Homeowners
Generac is an industry leader in generator sales and installation because we listen to our client’s needs and respond with solutions they can depend on. Generac’s air-cooled home standby generators feature improved enclosure designs that make access easier and reduce the time it takes to install and service the system.
Our generators also feature factory integrated sediment traps that make it easier to keep debris from fouling the system. These traps are easily accessible and can be cleaned in mere moments.
Generac has also improved the design of home standby generators by moving the mainline circuit breaker to inside the unit. This improves safety lockout capabilities and reduces the risk of damage to the unit.
Finally, improved and more flexible fuel lines are available in lengths ranging from 24″ to 72″. This gives homeowners significant control over the positioning of fuel supplies and makes it easier to keep the fuel flowing regardless of generator position and prevailing weather conditions.
