Residential Backup Generator

A residential BACKUP generator provides power delivery SOLUTIONS for HOME and BUSINESS.

Indoor-Mounted CAT StandbyA residential backup generator is a stand-alone delivery system that can provide uninterrupted electricity to your residence or business in the case of a power outage. Backup generators are often referred to as a genset. A genset is simply a separate power source, located close to the end user, that does not rely on commercially generated electricity. With a residential backup generator, you and your family can rest assured that if a major power failure occurs, you will not be burdened by having to relocate, or risk permanent damage to costly appliances like refrigerators and freezers. Security systems, lights, cooling or heat, other vital home components that require electricity will remain completely functional.

All backup generators are NOT THE SAME - find the CLASS of generator that best SUITS your needs.

Liquid-Cooled Standby In Residential Application
Locating the best generator for your backup power application is important for premier results. Backup generators typically are powered by gasoline, diesel, natural gas, or propane. For residential and business applications, a natural gas or propane model can be desirable because its motor creates less noise than a diesel operating at a similar rpm. Larger commercial applications will frequently opt for higher-kilowatt stationary units that deliver more power, but are louder during operation. If you\íre unsure how much power your residence or business will require from a residential backup generator, contact a qualified licensed electrician in your area for an assessment of consumption rates and needs. A qualified electrician should also be able to assist in choosing a suitable location for generator installation (true of standby and portable units), and alert you to any code requirements of a specific region or area. Backup generators come in many different power outputs and sizes - ranging from lightweight portable to stationary - and determining what will best fit your application can be confusing. In these circumstances, a good electrician can be invaluable.

PORTABLE models can be EASY to maneuver and CONVENIENT to store - but they normally will not power all of a home's ELECTRIC CIRCUITS.

Some extremely-large portable units, depending on application size, may provide whole-house backup. The most common portable units - those in the output range of 5500 to 7500 or 8000 watts - are usually a good fit for five or six home circuits. Remember that, unlike standby or stationary generators, portable units will require additional steps to become operational - the engine must be started, generator cords must be run between the generator and specific appliances, a power-inlet box, or a manual-transfer switch (keep in mind that, to introduce generator backup electricity into home circuits, always requires a transfer switch). In addition to gasoline, portable generators can be fueled by diesel, natural gas, and propane. Tri-Fuel models allow for the use of gasoline, propane, or natural gas with minimal modifications. Portable generators are ideal for residential or light-commercial backup. Portables are also great for contractors, and anyone else requiring electric power at a remote location.


Compact Car Outfitted With A Wood Gas GeneratorA stationary residential backup generator is a more permanent answer to the standby power question. Stationary units monitor commercial power from your utility provider, and start automatically when a power outage of more than several seconds is detected. Automatic operation of these generators requires connection to an ATS (automatic transfer switch). Besides offering more power output and control options, a stationary model affords a homeowner the security of hassle-free backup - having a system in place that will require no attention or input before it begins distributing emergency electricity. Stationary units are normally superior to portables in the number of household circuits and appliances they are able to power simultaneously - lighting plus water heaters, well pumps, freezers, air-conditioners, and, increasingly, modern electric furnaces.

Winco PTO TRACTOR generators can be the BEST OPTION in standby power for any tractor owner.

Trailered Diesel Generator SetsAn American generator manufacturer located in Le Center, Minnesota, Winco has been producing some of the sturdiest and toughest generators on the market for 80 years plus. Its first flirtation with the PTO generator arena occurred in 1942; today Winco supplies more PTO units to farmers and ranchers than any other American manufacturer. Boasting superior workmanship and topnotch technical support, the Winco PTO line features single and three-phase generators starting at 15 and topping out at 150 kilowatts - that's large enough to power even a commercial application! All units have a trailer option, and Winco's 15 kW and 25 kW machines can also be obtained with a three point hitch. Other accessories include 100 and 200 Amp Square D manual transfer switch models - these manual switches will provide plenty of backup power to the electrical panel of a home, barn, or other structure.
