An automatic standby generator works by monitoring utility voltage 24/7. When your electricity is interrupted, the generator detects the problem and goes to work. The automatic transfer switch safely disconnects the utility line and transfers to generator power. Power is at the same time restored within seconds. Once the utility is restored, the generator returns to standby mode.
Adpower generators are known chiefly for generators. With a sole focus on power generation for years, its reputation as the generator experts has grown to include portable, residential, commercial and industrial generators. The generators:
- Works whether you are home or away.
- Runs on your home’s existing LP or natural gas or diesel supply.
- Rests outside just like a central air conditioner.
Portable diesel generators that provide power to connected electrical equipment directly through the built in receptacles mounted on the generator with the use of extension cords do not require a permit.
However they must still be placed a safe distance from all openings to avoid the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. Running of extension cords through open windows and doors and plugging too many appliances into numerous outlets can form an unsafe situation.
Remember, generator exhaust gases contain deadly carbon monoxide. CO detectors are designed to sound an alarm when they sense excessive levels of CO in the air. Therefore it is recommended that you consider installing a CO detector on each level of your home.
Be sure to pursue the manufacturer’s instructions regarding installation, location, and maintenance. These devices can provide an extra measure of safety. The generator should never be operated inside; this includes basements, crawl spaces and/or attached garages. Please consult your generator owner’s manual for complete instructions on the safe location for and operation of your generator. Adpower generators deliver cleaner, more steady power that meets strict utility requirements and electrical standards
