Do you ever wonder how a generator works? Don't worry; we at Paramount Power Systems can explain the functioning of a residential generator to you in three simple steps:
The market is abundant with different options for generators, each with various specifications and dimensions. When buying a generator, it is essential to learn more about your options and place them against your own requirements. One of the types of equipment we provide is top-class standby generators in the greater Toronto area.
As the name suggests, standby generators are a kind of machinery programmed to wait for power outages and start functioning as soon as they detect one. Our Kohler standby generators warehoused in Toronto are entirely automatic, and they remain in standby mode when you have power. These generators will function regardless of whether you're home or away, supplying power to your property's electrical circuit breaker box whenever necessary. Another feature of these units is that they 'exercise' themselves routinely, which means that they run diagnostic tests on themselves without any intervention on your part.
Our Kohler standby generators supply the Toronto area and are both convenient and efficient. They are a good investment because you will never have to worry about physically turning on your generator when you have no power. Not only that, but our standby generators will provide you with power as soon as your electricity supply is out, with little to no disturbances.
Are you still wondering whether our standby generators available in Toronto and throughout Ontario are suitable for your home? Please feel free to reach out to our team with your questions.
Portable generators are ideal for those who are not ready to invest in a standby generator or are looking for a less permanent option. Unlike standby generators, these generators don’t have the capacity to detect power outages. In the event of one, you will need to manually turn on your generator for an uninterrupted power supply. These generators come with extension cords that you can plug into the devices you want to provide power to.
You can always rely on a backup generator for an emergency power supply. For instance, with access to a backup generator, you won't have to worry about the food in your refrigerator going bad when your electricity is out. When working from home, you can easily plug your computer into your portable backup generator and backup any files that you're worried about losing. Another overlooked advantage of backup generators is their ability to power tools. If you are undertaking work in your yard, or an area of your home that doesn't have a power switch, you can easily connect your tools to your portable generator and go about your project with ease.

What is the difference between a generator and an inverter?
Generators work on the principle of electromagnetic induction - they convert mechanical energy from an external source into electricity. Inverters are electronic devices that convert direct current into alternating current. Inverters have multiple circuits for load management.
What size of generator should I purchase for my home?
Use the sizing tool to know the power requirements of your home based on this, you can determine the generator size you require.
How often should I check the oil level?
Depending on the size and model of the generator, check the oil level after every eight to 24 hours of operation.
Can I use my old generator with my new generator?
Two generators can be used simultaneously by connecting them in a parallel format. This process electrically combines the power output of two generators. However, it would help if you always remembered the parallel connection of generators does depend on factors internal to the generator, i.e. the engine capacity, engine configuration, generator design, and regulator design, etc. Thus, it would be best if you put considerable thought into the overall design based on your system's primary purpose.
What does an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) do?
An Automatic Transfer switch transfers power from a common source (like a utility) to an emergency power source (like a generator). This happens automatically when the standard source fails, like in cases of a power cut. An ATS senses the power cut and signals the engine panel of the generation to kick into operation. Similarly, when the standard source gets power back, the ATS signals the generator's engine panel to stop its operations.
Do I require a generator that has a long tank?
This depends entirely on the specifics of your situation. A standard tank contains fuel that usually lasts 2-4 hours. A long tank, on the other hand, has enough fuel to last overnight. Thus, if your requirements are for a power backup that can run for long hours, it is advisable to opt for a long tank. However, if you require the generator for only short periods, a generator with a standard tank works just fine.
Can I Install My Own Standby Generator?
We don’t recommend you install a generator unless you are a licensed electrician and have a gas license. A professional will ensure that your generator does not violate any electricity guidelines that you may be obligated to follow and meets the manufacturers standards.
Do I Have to Maintain My Generator?
Absolutely. All types of generators require routine maintenance. For instance, standby generators require yearly maintenance. If you'd like to learn more about your generator's maintenance needs, please get in touch with our sister company, Ronnie's Generator Service.
How Long Will My Generator Last?
Typically, both standby and backup generators can last up to 25 years and more with proper maintenance. Routine maintenance is a crucial aspect of prolonging the life of your generator.
