Generator Genius: Tip #1 Backup your Power! Be prepared for utility disruptions or an Energy Emergency! Imagine what a day's loss of power can result in if you're a business owner. Having a backup generator will save you money, and possibility prevent loss of computer data, goods and supplies, labor, and customers! When seeking a source to buy a generator from, consider what the generator company offers as far as services. Your backup generator should come from a company that services generators, and has a generator maintenance program, like CD& Power! This way, you can be assured that most likely you will have the generator technician who did the installation back to perform maintenance. Plus, if they're anything like CD& Power; they have the Generator's warranty information, and can deal directly with the manufacturer. Another important factor is a reliable generator company, like CD& Power will have generator parts readily and available for immediate installment. Backup generators are normally powered by diesel fuel or natural gas. Additionally; generators must be sized to either handle the full electrical load of the business, or be modified with an automated or manual transfer switch that prevents the backup generator from overloading. When a power outage occurs, you will need more power to restart your business' systems and equipment than to continue operating them after startup. It's equivalent to having a power surge device on your computer! Only it's powering your whole business, and that computer! A backup generator must be installed correctly, the first time! A business' generator should be installed by a qualified generator technician. CD& Power works closely with the utility companies, and knows the cities and town's regulations, building specifications, and electrical codes.
