Generator dealer servicing Orem, Utah and other Northern and Central Utah areas. T-Rex offers a wide range of portable generators - including portable generators for recreation, backup power, and the jobsite. In addition to its variety of portables, T-Rex supplies permanent standby generators to Orem, Utah residents and commercial enterprises. Those who desire residential emergency backup, be it in the form of a portable or automatic standby unit, are guaranteed to find something suitable in our lineup. We also carry lightweight inverter generators, ideal for your next campout or for operating an RV AC, and pto (also called truck or tractor generators). These machines offer Orem, Utah tractor owners a reliable and cost effective means of producing end-user electricity. And if you are a building contractor, examine our selection of hard-working industrial machines.
If you are interested in a portable, standby, or other type of motorized generator, be sure to consider altitude and outside temperatures before selecting a particular model. Orem's elevation is 4,774 feet above sea level. Its warmest month, July, is over 92 degrees, and, as every Orem resident knows, average June and August temperatures are just slightly lower. Why does this matter? Read on....
It is a good idea to be cognizant of altitude and temperatures because both will affect your generator's output. Maximum generator power is produced at or below 85 degrees Fahrenheit. For every additional 5 degrees Fahrenheit, it slips by a consistent 1%. This means that at 100 degrees Fahrenheit, you will have lost at or near 3% of your maximum running and surge watts. Small amounts of power loss like this are usually manageable. Unfortunately, they can be augmented significantly by increases in elevation. For instance, a generator drops 3% to 4% of its rated or maximum wattage for every 1000 feet above sea level at which it is positioned. A generator that is operated one mile (5280 feet) above sea level can wind up sacrificing as much as 20% of its rated wattage.
High heat and elevations do not automatically necessitate the use of a larger or more-powerful generator. Planning for loads can help you make the right choice when it comes to generator sizing. If you determine that the load you wish to run requires full generator capacity (or if all available surge watts will be needed to start an electric motor in a tool or appliance - the motor in a rooftop RV air-conditioning unit for example), then you will often need a larger generator. If you are talking about a full critical load (a load that, if needed, must be operated without failure - portable medical devices taken to a remote location say), then you have no alternative - plan on purchasing a larger machine than you would need for the same operation at sea level.
