Know Your Power Priorities

Be Prepared

    When there's an unexpected power outage a generator can keep your home in motion. Keeping the family connected to their favorite devices and dinner cooking on the stove. Buying in haste may also mean bypassing recommended installation procedures and relying on extension cords, which for various safety reasons we don't recommend.     

List what matters to you

  Some common essentials are: Refrigerator (about 600 watts), Range (about 1,000 to 3,000), Microwave (about 850 to 1,800 watts), Sump Pump (750 to 1,500 watts), Central A/C (about 3,500 watts), Lights (60 to 600 watts), Wifi Router (about 20 watts), Computers (60 to 250 watts), Laptop (about 15 to 45 watts).   

Map Your Circuits

      In house wiring, a circuit usually indicates a group of lights or receptacles connected along such a path. Each circuit can be traced from its beginning in the service panel or subpanel through various receptacles, fixtures, and/or appliances and back.  

Transfer Switches

 Every home's standby power system needs a transfer switch. It’s how your generator makes sure the power stays on when there’s an outage — automatically switching your home’s circuits from the grid to your generator.

Smart Power

 The way it works is simple. You decide which circuits are most essential to your home. Whenever the generator approaches its power limit, the system turns off non-essential circuits to prevent an overload. Once essential circuits are satisfied, it cycles non-essential circuits back on. 

Round The Clock

Most homeowners want the peace of mind that comes with whole-house coverage. Whenever there’s an outage, you don’t have to worry because the power stays on at all times throughout your entire home.Everything comes on and stays on. So you don’t have to decide which circuits are most important. They’ll all be available, automatically, around the clock.

Standby Generators Have Longer Run-times

 Portable generators are limited in power and run-time by how much generator fuel you have on-hand. Whole home generators by Generac  are powered by reliable OHVI (Over Head Valve Industrial) engines and are connected directly to your fuel source, natural gas or liquid propane. This allows a prolonged run-time and produces enough electricity to provide your home with reliable backup power.

Congratulations

  You invested in a Generac automatic home backup generator and now you’re never without power. But just like a car,  air-cooled backup generators need to be properly maintained to perform as designed. With power outages taking place daily, the experts at Generac have provided a few maintenance tips to keep your generator operating properly and at optimal efficiency. For optimal efficiency when using your air-cooled generator, follow these tips: Document the last time your unit had it's air filter, oil filter and spark plugs replaced? Most air-cooled units need to be serviced every 12 to 24 months or after every 200 hours of use, whichever comes first. If your unit is due for service, contact your dealer, or order replacement parts. If you’re not sure how many hours your unit has operated, check the hour meter on your generator controller. 

 

  • Make sure your unit and its major components are kept clean and free of any debris on both the inside and outside of the unit’s enclosure. This includes the intake and exhaust louvers on the sides of the generator. Your generator is also the perfect crawlspace for small pests & animals, keep your generator clear for optimum performance.

 

  • Regularly check all major components for rust or worse corrosion.  Exposure to outdoor conditions will increase the risk of rust, especially in coastal regions or where the climate is frequently wet or humid.  Rust and corrosion can be prevented through ensuring proper installation and keeping your generator free of high-moisture areas (i.e. near downspouts or sprinklers). Contact Emergency Power Professionals for further assistance if your unit has any significant corrosion.

 

  • Clean and tighten battery terminals and check the voltage state of the battery. Be sure it is not leaking any battery fluid. If you need to replace your battery, visit any auto parts or battery retailer or contact Emergency Power Professionals to schedule a service call.

 

  • Check the engine oil level to make sure it is full. If it needs to be refilled, refer to your manual for the correct type of oil. Also, keep a spare bottle of oil on hand, in case your area is hit with extended outages. If there is not enough oil in the unit, the generator will shut itself down to protect the engine. If you need assistance completing these maintenance steps, contact Emergency Power Professionals.
