    Is It Better To Run A Generator On Propane Or Natural Gas?

    Natural Gas Generators: Offering a cost-effective solution, it is approximately 40% cheaper than propane. However, its availability might be limited in some areas due to infrastructure constraints. Most generators seamlessly switch between propane and natural gas, providing flexibility based on availability and cost.

    Propane Generators: Offers a longer shelf life, making it an excellent choice for generator fuel storage. While more complex to maintain, propane-powered generators are environmentally advantageous, emitting about half the carbon monoxide of standard gasoline generators. Proper storage in certified tanks is essential, with recertification every 10 years for cylinders and 25 years for bulk storage units.

    How Do Home Backup Generators Work?

    When faced with a power outage, the role of your backup generator is to supply your Calgary property with electricity until the issue has been resolved. Whether it is for 10 minutes or 10 days, you will enjoy the luxury of uninterrupted living. Here is how backup generator work:

    1. Power disruption: External factors like storms or equipment failures lead to a loss of electricity in your home.
    2. Power outage detection: Within moments, your generator detects the power interruption.
    3. Automatic activation: Whether you’re present or away, your generator kicks into gear automatically.
    4. Power restoration: The electricity in your home will continue to function like normal until the power is restored.

    A backup generator, also known as a standby generator, is a device that provides emergency power to a building or home in the event of a power outage. It automatically activates within seconds, ensuring uninterrupted power supply to critical appliances like lighting, HVAC systems, security devices, and medical equipment. Backup generators are essential in areas prone to power disruptions due to weather, equipment failures, or emergencies.

    Backup generators generate electricity through an engine powered by fuels like natural gas, propane, or diesel. Installed outdoors and connected to the electrical system via an automatic transfer switch, they swiftly respond to power loss. When an outage occurs, the transfer switch detects it and triggers the generator to start. Within seconds, it begins producing electricity, and the switch seamlessly redirects power from the primary grid to the generator. The generator supplies power until the grid is restored, at which point the switch reverts to the primary source, and the generator powers down.

    It’s important to clear the installation area of any clutter and ensure a clear working path for the installers. Additionally, make sure the installation site is easily accessible and provides enough space for the unit

    Manufacturers generally recommend annual servicing, although usage frequency may affect this schedule. During the service, our skilled technicians inspect, clean, and test various components, including filters, oil levels, fuel levels, spark plugs, and other parts. Regular checks such as inspecting air intake and exhaust, monitoring the battery, and running the generator briefly each month are also crucial for optimal performance.

    The noise level of a backup generator depends on its type and model. Diesel generators tend to be the loudest, while natural gas and propane models produce less noise.

    Backup generators are designed for automatic activation and typically begin producing electricity within a few seconds of detecting a power outage. This short duration, known as “transfer time,” ensures swift connection of the electrical load to the generator power source.
