Why Install a Commercial Generator System?

Friday, March 6th, 2015

There are a multitude of ways a long-term power outage can occur: weather events, flooding, damage to a substation – the list is pretty long. The bigger question is: can your business afford to be out of power for more than a few hours? When the power is out at your business, security systems won’t be able to operate, leaving your business vulnerable to intrusion. If you have a food-based business, such as a restaurant or coffee shop, you could lose a great deal of money to spoiled food. Plus, there are general issues that all businesses face when the power goes out, including problems with plumbing and heating. The bottom line: installing a commercial generator system in Olympia, WA, can really make good business sense.

Automatic Transfer Switch

One of the great benefits of having a commercial generator for your business space is that the generator will turn on automatically as soon as a power outage is detected. This is because the generator is equipped with sensors that detect instantly when the power going through your electrical panel is interrupted. The automatic process means you don’t have to worry about manually switching to your generator or that you’ll experience any power loss.

Uses Natural Gas

Generators use fuel for power, and many use natural gas; you can also use propane or diesel. When your generator is connected to a natural gas line, you won’t have to worry about running out of fuel (you will have to monitor the fuel with propane and diesel).

Can Power All Your Major Systems

A portable generator is very limited as to the amount of power it can provide, often generating enough electricity to operate 1-2 appliances at a time. Your commercial generator will be sized to power everything you need it to so that when the power goes out, your business will stay protected and operable, and may even be a safe haven for those without power.

The experts at Sunset Air know how devastating a long power outage can be for both homes and businesses.
