Now is Always Better Than Later When Buying a New Generator
When you need a new generator, it is always better to buy it now and not need it than wait until later when it is too late to be of any benefit. Buying a generator before an emergency arises allows you to thoroughly research your standby generator options and make the best decision for your home or business. When you wait, you lose the luxury of time and can rush into making the wrong decision that won’t deliver the steady, reliable flow of power you require. At Gen-Tech Power Generation Specialists, our sales team is more than happy to help you calculate your power needs and recommend a reliable new generator from our inventory.
Top Considerations for Any New Generator
The first thing to consider is the size of your new generator. If it’s too small, it won’t generate the power you need and will wear out sooner than it should. If it’s too large, you will waste fuel as the years go by. Calculating the total wattage needed to turn on and operate your home or business is a task we are happy to assist with.
You will also want to consider fuel efficiency, fuel availability, and parts availability for your new generator. Modern power generators are considerably more fuel-efficient than older generators. However, you will still need to make sure that the diesel, natural gas, or biofuel required to operate the generator is readily available and that you have sufficient storage capacity for your needs. You will also want to make sure that there is a ready supply of replacement parts nearby.
When considering a new generator, don’t forget to research the power management system. Do you want a plug-and-play design that makes control and configuration easy? Or, would you rather have a more complex system that gives you more control over customization and integration with your other systems? There are advantages to both, and our generator sales team can help you determine which is best for you.
Do you need a single new generator, or are you planning to parallel systems later on? If you own a business that’s growing, you may need one new generator now but another not too far down the road. If that is the case, you want to choose a new generator conducive to creating a modular power plant. This can make it easier and less expensive to expand your generator systems as your business grows.
Lastly, it is important to determine where you will position your new generator. If you purchase a unit with a large footprint, you will need sufficient space to position it on your property. You will also want to position the generator in a well-protected location from both the elements and intruders.
The team at Gen-Tech Power Generation Specialists welcomes your questions and we invite you to contact us today. It is our pleasure to help you buy a new generator now so that it’s ready for use when you need it later.
