BackgroundOver the past 10 years we have consulted with hundreds of Georgia homeowners seeking reliable and cost effective
solutions for quality standby power.Most of these homeowners we were able to help, but for some their
goal was out of reach.The difference between those we were able to help and those we were unable to help,
was most often driven by the type of heating system – gas or electric.With more and more homeowners
demanding reliable power for home-office environments, medical issues, security concerns or just convenience, anticipating
that standby generator power may be in a home’s future is a smart move that can save a homeowner thousands of dollars.
Understanding Energy Demand:A
standby power generator is sized to meet the electric demand of the appliances connected to it.The greater
the demand, the larger the generator system required to meet that demand.For example, the emergency
(strip) heat function associated with an electric heat pump is typically 10kW (10,000 watts).Since
generators are intended to be operated at 80-85% of the rated capacity, the impact of an electric heat pump rules out the
most popular and cost effective 12 and 15 kW standby power generators.After considering the addition of the electric water heater (4,500 watts) and other
electric requirements, the minimal generator size increases from 12 or 15kW to 25 or 30kW. At $400 to $500 per kW, the cost of a quality generator system
increases to more than $10,000.00Understanding the electrical
requirements of the major energy consuming appliances is the key to advance planning. The Solution:If reliable cost effective standby
power is an option that you would like to plan for, then limiting electric demand through the use of gas appliances for major
energy uses such as heating and water heating should be considered. If gas appliances are not an option because
of location or construction, then today's Power Management solutions can help. No one in Georgia has more experience
with using and installing todays state-of-the-art Generator Power Managment Technology than GenSpring Power.
