Choosing the Right Diesel Generator
Finding a diesel generator that delivers the right amount of kilowatts is key. A small diesel generator may provide enough power for your home, but you need a generator that will perform in high kW applications for large facilities. Hospitals, emergency service providers, and other round-the-clock operations may also have other factors to consider. For example, we offer models that fit code requirements for on-site fuel storage and ones that are EPA-compliant.
Generators are measured by their power output, generally represented in watts. While some diesel generators may have a high output (or high wattage), it’s important to look at the quality of the output as well. Sometimes even a large generator might get overloaded or trip a circuit if too many items are drawing power at one time. Try to calculate the wattage that all essential appliances will draw in your home, and then use that to select the right-size power equipment.
Types of Generators
You may consider many different kinds of diesel generators for your home or facility. The first is a powered portable generator. These models are often cheaper and can be moved around if needed. They’re best for smaller applications, but this type of generator should never be operated indoors, near sensitive equipment, or in the rain.
Industrial diesel generators are well-suited to large operations, like hospitals or emergency facilities, but wouldn’t be appropriate for a single-family home. They have a high output and can support a large wattage load. Standby generators are another product that can give you peace of mind even before an emergency. While these are the most costly units to install, they offer reliable backup power by starting up automatically if the power goes out. They’re often larger and more complex.
Benefits of Diesel Fueled Generators
Diesel fuel has long been preferred over standard gasoline due to its fuel efficiency. Because diesel fuel is more efficient, generators with diesel engines are cheaper to run and maintain than their gasoline counterparts. They can generate more power from less fuel but also run quieter and are extremely resilient even in harsh conditions. They provide easy access to fuel, and fuel storage is simpler thanks to a relatively low risk of ignition. Additionally, they require less overall maintenance because they’re made with fewer components.
