How To Plan For The Install Of A Commercial Generator

Commercial generators play an essential role in large-scale power operations, especially at places like hospitals, police stations and other facilities crucial to the health and safety of the public. Your business, no matter what it is, will benefit from having a backup generator ready to keep operations running in the event of an outage. Commercial generators will save you money and time. 

At PowerTech, we specialize in the sale, installation and maintenance of commercial and residential generators. 

How to Choose a Commercial Generator 

While a commercial generator can provide a temporary power solution during an electrical outage, these generators can also be installed for continuous and prime usage. Industries requiring heavy machinery or construction equipment may require a commercial generator that offers higher output and that provides a reliable energy source.

Your generator’s power output determines the functionality and how well your site will continue to run. An underpowered generator installation could lead to machinery downtime, which causes lost business and leads to higher expenses. You should choose a commercial generator that exceeds the power output needs of your facility, but a generator that is overpowered could cause efficiency problems and emissions issues on a long-term basis. 

Commercial Generator Installation Requirements 

To prepare for your commercial generator installation, talk with an electrical expert who can help you review your options. You will need to consider size, noise level, and power output. You will also need to determine which features you will need for your generator. Generators are technologically advanced now, and they offer a variety of features including automatic transfers, cloud-based monitoring, and other additional features. These features could allow for immediate start-up with no downtime should your original source of power fail. 

Also keep in mind that you will need to properly maintain your generator. There are some generators, such as those run off diesel, that require less maintenance. All generators should be regularly inspected and maintained. Often, the company that installs your generator will offer regular maintenance. When choosing a company to provide generator maintenance, make sure you do not let the lowest price be your decision maker. Instead, consider all the services, so consider how thorough the proposals for providing generator maintenance because you do not want your generator to lack proper maintenance then fail when you need it most. PowerTech offers full service maintenance plans for commercial generators.
