How Generators Work

What happens when you experience a power outage? Power outages can undermine your productivity and even cause certain business operations to come to a halt. By investing in a standby generator, whether at home or in your business premise, you can avoid long or short-term power outages that occur due to the weather, accidents or more. At Imas Electric INC, we offer standby generator installation for both residential and commercial clients. We’ll help you keep customers and maintain high productivity by ensuring you have a constant supply of power in your building.

Generators are designed to act as a backup source of power. Whenever there is a power outage, the generator is automatically switched on and continues to supply power to the building. Generators contain a heavy-duty battery that creates and maintains mechanical energy. They also come with a fuel tank which can be filled with either gasoline, diesel or natural gas as well as an engine and alternator. The alternator is what converts mechanical energy into electrical power used to run different appliances and components in the building.

At Imas Electric INC, we can help you select the right type of commercial power generator for your building. Even portable generators need to be wired into the electric panel by an electrician. Our experts will make sure the wiring is properly done and all your appliances and extension cords function correctly. If you need the generator to power only lights and appliances like refrigerators and some computers, we’ll make sure proper installation is done to facilitate this. We will offer guidance on how to maintain your portable generator to ensure it serves you for the longest time.

Why Every Business Needs a Standby Generator

Whenever your business experiences a power outage, all the electrical appliances are shut down. This interferes with certain operations that could be critical to your business. Having a standby generator ensures that you can keep appliances running during power losses. Employees are also greatly affected due to power losses. Their comfort and safety may be at risk after a power outage. Whether short-term or long-term, power losses can result in lower productivity among your employees. This is especially common in areas that are prone to ice storms, snow storms and heat waves.
Most importantly, avoid frequent power losses because they can lead to loss of critical business data. Whenever there is a power outage, you risk losing computer data. Furthermore, if you have security systems that rely on power supply, an outage can expose your business to significant risks. Having a standby generator will ensure that your business enjoys uninterrupted power supply despite blowouts and outages when you least expect it.

At Imas Electric INC, we can help you select the right type of commercial power generator for your building. Even portable generators need to be wired into the electric panel by an electrician.

Potential Generator Problems

If you already have a standby generator in your home, you need to watch out for signs of trouble.

Battery failure

This normally occurs when there is a lot of sulfate buildup on different components such as the terminals. The battery might also fail to operate effectively due to loose or dirty connections.

Cooling problems

You may notice that the generator becomes too hot and ultimately shuts down when it’s powered. This often occurs due to internal and external leaks as well as clogged radiators. Our technicians can resolve these issues and ensure your generator is functioning as it should.

Damaged engine

Your generator’s engine can get damaged due to carbon particles, unburned fuel or acids that accumulate in the exhaust. There are many other generator problems that can go unnoticed. Call our expert technicians to provide the necessary repairs and replacements.
