Having a generator for the home and industry can be said to be the most important, after all in this day and age. Rotating blackouts that are common can provoke your business operations. Factors like repairing facilities, installation to natural disturbances make electricity sometimes must be extinguished.

Well, having a generator certainly makes sure our business continues to run even though it is in a blackout. Including if you have a business or industry both small and medium. However, it should be ignored that choosing a generator cannot be careless, because choosing one generator instead makes its performance not utilized maximally.

What needs to be considered before choosing the best generator for your business?

Genset Power

The generator set needed must be exceeded by 10 percent of the total electric power in your residence or business location. For example, for an electric capacity of 13,000 watts, the correct generator set is 13,000 + 10% or 1300 resulting in 14,300 watts. That's the least power a generator must have to revive electricity in your location.

Usually, to use generators with power it is also not uncommon to be called generators with 15kVa power. Now, this kVa is a measure used specifically to measure generators, not ordinary electricity. Because of course ordinary electricity uses units of kW or kilowatts, while kVa is kilovolt amperes. The main difference is that kVa is the size of the generator with extra units of active power with a small amount of active power. The ratio of the difference between kW and kVa is collected from the electricity load.

For instance, 100 kVa is 80kW or as long as 80,000 watts. Well, still remember the technique to find the best electricity generator in your location, right? For example, electricity at your residence is 1300 watts, so the generator set needed is 1,300 + 130 or 1,430 watts, now the right size of kVa for 1,430 watts is 15kVa. So roughly measuring technique.

Genset Type

There are two types of generators, namely the silent and open ones. Silent means that the generator does not make a sound, and certainly will be most suitable when used in an environment that is not noisy. Usually, in places like school, hospital and government institutions, for example, generators like this are not infrequently used. The silent generator is more pricey than the open generator type. Harga mesin genset (the price) between 100USD or more.

There is also a home industry that uses silent generators, you know. Of course, it could be that the environment is an environment that will be disturbed by noise. But for the home industry, generators that are very often used are open generator types. Although the sound is more noisy, but its performance is quite okay for electricity needs at your business location. The price is more affordable compared to the silent generator. There is an alternative way to anticipate noise caused by open type generators, namely by using a wall insulation as a sound filter.

Genset Spare Parts

Both silent generators, and open generator sets certainly need good protection and care. But if there is damage, spare parts should be easy to find.

In order to avoid damage, care must be taken. Every spare part also needs attention. For example the location of oil, hose, clamp, cooling system, radiator, fuel system, air intake system and cooling water. Regular checks need to be carried out after the use of a generator with a long duration. With a longer duration, the engine will definitely get hotter to the point that you need to listen to the cooling system and air intakes.

Battery Starting

Well, this also must be known, in addition to other spare parts, batteries that are among the urgent elements in the generator. Lead-acid batteries in the generator must be replaced every 2-3 years. It is also necessary to have a battery tested so the battery is in good condition, or has been weak.

If the battery is in a weak situation, and not good enough, then the generator can fail standby, even if it does not work. So, make sure the battery in our generator is weighted weighted | good quality. When you have seen porous, or rusty, then avoid the generator set. If the generator set that we have within a number of years is exposed to corrosion, then replace the batteries immediately. A good battery in the generator has a specific gravity of 1,260. If it's below 1,215, it needs to be recharged.

Well, these suggestions can you make a consideration before choosing the best generator for your home business. Plus make sure the best price for the best generator set, so you don't lose.
