Here are some of the benefits of using natural gas backup generators:

We Are Generator Experts

Natural gas is a cleaner-burning fuel compared to diesel or gasoline. Using natural gas as a backup power source produces fewer harmful emissions, which is especially important for both environmental and health considerations.

Natural gas is delivered through pipelines, ensuring a consistent and reliable fuel supply. This eliminates the need to store large amounts of fuel on-site, as required for diesel or gasoline generators.

Natural gas generators tend to operate more quietly than diesel generators, which can be important in residential areas or noise-sensitive environments.

Natural gas generators often have longer run times compared to diesel generators, as they can tap into a continuous supply of natural gas. This is particularly beneficial during extended power outages.

Since natural gas generators are connected to a pipeline, there’s no need to manually refuel them. This eliminates the inconvenience and potential hazards associated with refueling traditional generators.

Natural gas engines generally require less maintenance compared to diesel engines. They have fewer moving parts and experience less wear and tear due to the cleaner combustion process.

Natural gas generators can start up quickly and reliably, making them suitable for providing power in emergency situations without delay.

In some areas, stricter emissions regulations make natural gas generators a preferred choice for backup power due to their cleaner emissions profile.

Natural gas backup generators can be integrated with automatic transfer switches, which detect power outages and seamlessly switch the generator on to provide backup power without manual intervention.

Natural gas backup generators are particularly valuable for businesses, as they ensure continuity of operations, data protection, and customer service during power outages.

A home equipped with a natural gas backup generator can be more attractive to potential buyers, adding to the property’s value.

It’s important to note that installing a natural gas backup generator requires proper planning, installation, and adherence to local codes and regulations. DRP Electrical Contracting will ensure the generator is properly sized and integrated into your electrical system. CALL US TODAY for information.
