Generators & Accessories

Generators ensure a supply of electricity even when there has been a power cut or in places where access to the power grid is not convenient. Most generators feature a combustion engine, which runs on a liquid fuel. The starting mechanism may be electric- or battery operated and might be started manually or automatically. Generator accessories ensure the smooth operation of the machine so it continues to function even in adverse weather conditions. Generators can be categorised as standby or portable. Standby generators are fixed in one place and can be powerful enough to cover the energy needs of an entire building. Portable generators are smaller and so cannot produce such large amounts of power but are not as noisy. They can be transported to where they are needed. Some accessories such as remote start switches and maintenance kits would be necessary for both kinds of generator. Others such as a wheel kit for transport purposes and battery chargers would be suitable only for portable machines. Although sometimes purchased for domestic use, standby generators are often installed in places where electricity must be constant such as hospitals. Portable kinds often a temporary solution for the energy needs of construction sites and holiday homes.
