Taking The Sting Out Of Emergencies With An Emergency Generator
The tri-fuel unit operates on GASOLINE, liquid PROPANE or for ultimate convenience, NATURAL GAS.
Unparalleled versatility makes the tri-fuel generator an excellent choice for emergency backup purposes. These models are designed to perform effectively on gasoline, propane, or natural gas - without a significant change in output. By utilizing the NG feed of an application, these portable generators from Winco can deliver the same non-stop standby electricity as a permanent generator. Boasting Honda and Briggs & Stratton muscle for reliability, the word "versatility" has a second slightly different meaning when it comes to these machines. They can be operated on gasoline at a job site one day, and provide emergency residential electricity on an alternative fuel the next!
Our HONDA and GENERAC powered portables make excellent home EMERGENCY GENERATORS.
All top manufacturers have lines of home generators that were designed to provide quality occasional backup at an economical price. Designed to be lighter in weight for superior mobility, and often more compact for convenient storage, these machines can be a homeowner's best friend when outages or other emergencies arise. Our home portable units come from Winco, Generac, and Briggs & Stratton - and with an array of wattages from 3500 to over 17000, there is a model available for any size application.
For a more PERMANENT emergency SOLUTION, consider a STANDBY generator.
Standby emergency generators have a couple of advantages over portable units. Automatic operation entails that setup is eliminated when a utility interruption occurs. It also means that a generator runs whether or not the home or business is occupied - important in applications that require a critical appliance to operate continuously (a sump pump or freezer for instance, or central heat in frigid temperatures). The generator must be mated to an automatic transfer switch (ATS) for the safe introduction of backup power into standard electrical circuits. The switch is also designed to manage generator operation - in an outage or emergency, also during weekly test (better known as exercise) runs. Exercise cycles ensure that a generator's battery remains charged and that it is otherwise always prepared for emergency deployment. For those generator owners who have selected propane or diesel as an emergency fuel source, maintaining a fresh fuel supply will be necessary. For most of us, it is simply a matter of keeping the product serviced and in good operating condition.
