Do I Need a Generator for My Business?

Yes, having a generator for your business is highly recommended. 

Here are 4 reasons why you should install a commercial generator:

  1. Avoid financial loss: Power outages can disrupt operations and lead to significant financial losses. Having a generator ensures an uninterrupted power supply, allowing your business to continue functioning smoothly. 
  2. Prevent unnecessary damages: Businesses that rely on sensitive equipment or perishable goods – such as data centers or restaurants – can use a generator to prevent damage or spoilage during power outages.
  3. Maintain smooth business operations: In industries where continuous power is crucial for safety reasons – such as healthcare facilities or manufacturing plants – a commercial generator becomes essential to maintain operations.
  4. Avoid prolonged disruptions: Businesses located in areas prone to natural disasters or unreliable power grids should strongly consider installing a generator to mitigate the impact of lengthy power disruptions.

What Are the Benefits of Commercial Generators 

Wondering if a commercial generator is really all that necessary? We recommend considering the various advantages of generators before making your final decision. 

Below are key benefits of commercial generators:

  • Continuous power supply: A commercial generator keeps essential systems – such as lighting, heating, cooling, and security systems – running smoothly. This ensures the comfort and safety of occupants in the building.
  • Business stability: With a generator in place, businesses can continue operations seamlessly, regardless of primary power availability. This stability fosters confidence among customers and employees.
  • Data protection: Generators prevent the loss of important electronic data during power disruptions. This is crucial for businesses that rely on digital systems and need to maintain data integrity.
  • Customer and employee comfort: By providing power during outages, commercial generators help keep customers and employees comfortable, even during difficult weather conditions.
  • Equipment and inventory protection: Having a generator safeguards valuable equipment and perishable inventory from damage or spoilage caused by unexpected power failures.

How Long Do Commercial Generators Last?

Commercial generators can last anywhere from 20,000 to 50,000 hours of use, which translates to approximately 15 to 25 years of operation.
