There are countless power generators in use today, but basically, they all fall into two categories; domestic and commercial. Within those categories there are diesel powered, gas powered and petrol powered. Knowing which generator would suit your purposes requires careful thought, especially when you consider what the generator will be required to do.
In a domestic situation it will probably mean that the generator will keep the lights, fridge, TV and, in the UK, the kettle functioning. Whereas a small business might also need more refrigerators to keep running, or perhaps, machinery while larger businesses may have banks of computers, it may even be a hospital. In all cases, the Cornish based company Simply Generators will be able to assist you in your decision making.
Obviously, a hospital, or large communication centre, cannot afford to be without power for one instant, whereas a small household may easily survive without power for some considerable time, even then it can be darned inconvenient. Simply Generators will have the generator to suit your needs and if they haven’t one in stock, they can quickly source one for you.
Generators used to be horrendously noisy, but the noise aspect has been reduced somewhat by use of sound absorbing materials and by paying a little more, it is possible to obtain a really quiet generator which is especially valuable when other residents live nearby.
Other factors to consider are what fuel will drive the generator, diesel being the most popular. Where to site the device? Where are the exhaust fumes to go? Do you require it to be installed as a fixed facility, or would you prefer a portable generator? Is the generator just for emergency back-up, or is it to run continuously at an isolated location? Do you wish to buy, rent or simply hire one for a couple of days?
These are all questions your expert advisor will help you with at Simply Generators and he will also advise on the best way of connecting up your generator to the premises as it is not just a case of plugging in from the machine to a socket in the building.
