The winter of 2012 is fast approaching, with temperatures all across the UK dropping dramatically for the first time today. Tonight is set to be one of the coldest this year, with temperatures dropping even further to give sub zero results. But this harsh winter weather won’t only just bring the cold, it will also have a detrimental effect on our electricity supplies, with power cuts and blackouts now seeming inevitable over the next couple of months. With many venerable members of the population, such as young children and the elderly set to be a risk from long, freezing cold nights without any electricity supplies to power heaters and lights to keep warm and safe, now is the time to prepare.
So how can you prepare for the harsh, winter weather on the way?
Genpower Ltd have a simple solution to help during those long, cold nights when the blackouts hit- which comes in the form of a backup generator. A backup generator will ensure that you have a constant and reliable source of power available to you when you need it the most, which will help you keep yourself and your family warm and safe over the next couple of months. Genpower offer a wide range of backup generators, from the smaller Hyundai HY3600SEi to power basic essentials to the massive DHY120KSE with enough power to run a factory!
Is it possible for the backup generator to start automatically in the event of a power failure?
Many of the backup generators available from Genpower have an ATS connection and functionality. It is important to check the product description to see. An ATS, or automatic transfer switch, is available to purchase separately from Genpower, and once set up will allow your generator to turn on automatically when the lights go out. This is ideal for the cold, winter months when going out in freezing temperatures and fumbling your way around in the dark to turn on the generator is not a practical option, allowing you to keep your home lit up and cosy during those pesky blackouts!
What is the most popular backup generator that Genpower offer?
The most popular backup generator that Genpower offer has got to be the Hyundai DHY6000SE silent diesel generator. This is the ideal diesel backup generator to help protect your family from being left in the dark this winter. With an impressive maximum power output of 5.2kw and a 10hp 4-stroke OHV Hyundai engine, this has become an unbeatable backup generator for home or small business use. The DHY6000SE has ATS connection and functionality as mentioned earlier. As well as this, the DHY6000SE features a sophisticated AVR alternator, allowing you to power sensitive electronic equipment such as laptops, without the worry of their sensitive electrical components and circuitry becoming damaged.
