5 Reasons Your Business Should Invest in a Diesel Generator
In today’s modern world, where we are increasingly reliant on electronic technology, a greater number of business owners are investing in standby power systems to keep their data, facilities and assets safe. But the question on your mind is, is a diesel generator the right choice for you and your business? To help you come to the appropriate decision, #teamwb have written this article to lay out the benefits of buying a diesel generator. However, despite the vast number of positive reasons for buying a diesel generator, there is one key question that you should ask yourself before reading on; if there was a power failure in your business, could you afford to lose your connectivity and therefore productivity for minutes/hours?
If the answer is no – we strongly suggest investigating the possibility of buying a diesel generator further (contact us here), as it’s likely going to save your business from unnecessary pain in the future.
1. WITHIN SECONDS, YOUR POWER WILL RETURN!
In the event of a power failure, standby diesel generators will kick in, bringing the power back on within seconds. You can reduce this further by installing a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) alongside the diesel generator. A UPS is designed to bridge that short gap, allowing time for an electrical system to shut down and time for a generator to take load or mains electricity to return. This essentially means if there was a mains power failure, your facility would remain unaffected!
2. GAIN PEACE OF MIND
Simply knowing that you’re covered in the event of a mains power failure is extremely valuable. In the event of a power outage, not only can sourcing a temporary power solution (such as a generator hire company) can be a difficult task to achieve, but it’s also likely to cost you a lot of money at short notice, as most companies will operate on a ‘minimum one week hire’ policy for non-customers.
3. NO COSTLY DROPS IN PRODUCTIVITY
If your business relies heavily on technology or machinery, you may find yourselves incapacitated until mains power is restored. This subsequently means taking a large financial hit for the business because productivity will drop to very low levels. With a standby generator in place, this won’t happen, as your power will be back within seconds.
4. KEEPS YOUR FACILITY SECURE
If the mains fail and you don’t have a standby power solution, your security systems will be offline until the power comes back on, meaning no CCTV and doors which use electromagnets becoming unlocked.
5. LIFE SAFETY APPLICATIONS
Life safety generators are routinely required and used to handle life safety problems connected with power outages, such as lifts, emergency lighting systems, fire alarms, and exhaust and pressurisation fans in hospitals and buildings. Having a robust standby power solution in-place will ensure that in the event of a mains power failure, anyone in your facility will be safe.
