Commonly Asked Questions
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.
