Generator Repair Service and Maintenance

BEFORE

AFTER

A generator is a machine that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. This machine is constructed from three basic elements; an engine, an alternator, and a control system. The control system keeps both the alternator and the engine, working under specified parameters.

Generators are used as backup sources for electrical energy.  When the electrical grid fails, a generator can be used to power a building. This allows the building or a house to be utilized normally as if the grid was still working.

Your Fort Lauderdale generator experts, RCS Electrical Services, has indepth training in terms of all the issues related to these systems.

RCS Electrical services can install or repair any type of generator, large or small. We can do generators from 10kw to 1000kw.

There are two basic types of generators in use today for residential and commercial applications; portable and standby.  They each offer a unique set of advantages and disadvantages.  In order to choose which one is right for you, it is necessary to understand your particular situation to determine which type of generator may best fit your need.

When trying to determine which type of unit is best for you, the best choice is to find a professional generator technician that you trust, and consult with him about what type of unit is best suited to your application.

Standby Generators

Standby generators are tremendous necessity in your household or business, if you can’t afford to be without power, for even the smallest amount of time.  Whether you have an elderly person at home, that is on oxygen, a business you run from home, or you run an operation that needs constant power, a standby generator can be a great tool to own. 

These machines are completely automatic, watching the power line status every second of the day and night.  If they sense that the power lines have failed, they start and within seconds, your property is operating as if you were still connected to the grid.  It is a wonderful experience to have.  When everyone is suffering in the heat or cold, you can feel good that you have planned ahead, and protected those things that matter most to you. 

Standby generators are usually installed with automatic transfer switches.  Transfer switches allow generators to monitor the utility lines. When the generator sees that the utility lines have lost power, it starts within five seconds.  After the generator starts, it tells the transfer switch to disconnect the house or building from the utility lines, and then it sends electrical energy to the main electrical panel through the transfer switch.

  3. Kohler
  4. General Electric

Read below to gain more information on the different brands of standby generators.

Generac Home and Commercial Standby Generator Sales Repair Service Maintenance and Installation By Your Generator Experts Your Fort Lauderdale Generator Experts

Generac is one of the leaders in the manufacturing and sale of standby generators.  They offer a wide range of standby generators.  You can pick from a small air cooled 7KW generator to a very large unit suitable for industrial applications. For most residential applications you will do well to consider the air cooled standby generators. If you feel your application needs a more robust generator, then you ought to opt for a liquid cooled unit.

Generac has the Guardian series which includes 8KW, 10KW, 14KW, 17KW, 20KW, 25KW, 30KW, 45KW, and 60KW. They also have the QuiteSource series which includes the 22KW, 27KW, 36KW, and 48KW machines.  I personally recommend these generators over the Guardian Series units.  They are so much more powerful and robust, there is no comparison.

This company is especially good with training and certifying their technicians, and very good with parts.  You can order these generators with confidence, knowing that you will not be left with a unit that cannot be serviced. Their transfer switches are also very good, and do an adequate job at handling their task.  Their price is affordable and the performance is good.

Briggs and Stratton Home and Commercial Standby Generator Sales Repair Service Maintenance and Installation By Your Generator Experts Your Fort Lauderdale Generator Experts

Briggs and Stratton produce a very good generator.  Their engines are superb, and are very easy to install, repair, and maintain. They are a relatively new player in the standby generator market, but they bring lots of great technology with them.

One thing I love about their standby generator program is their transfer switch technology.  They really have a great load control program.  Load control is the technology that allows generators to know when they are carrying too much load.  Through their transfer switch, they are able to disconnect certain large loads for a discrete amount of time. Sometimes they may disconnect your stove for a few milliseconds, and you don’t even notice, but it allows the generator to work well within its factory parameters, not exceeding its capacity or rating.

Briggs and Stratton has many standby generator sizes ranging from 8KW to 48KW.

Kohler Home and Commercial Standby Generator Sales Repair Service Maintenance and Installation By Your Generator Experts Your Fort Lauderdale Generator Experts

Kohler produces a very robust and quiet standby generator.  These units run very smoothly, and are extremely reliable.  I am not too fond of their transfer switches, since the basic units lack the capability to do load control.  Then transfer switches that have this capability are very expensive.

If you are in the market to obtain a Kohler generator, and need a certified technician to provide it, install it and service it, we will happy honored to be chosen to do this project for you

General Electric produces a generator which is an upgrade of an already good system.  General Electric’s generators are manufactured by Briggs and Stratton. These are very sophisticated generators, that come with a very strong warranty program.

As I said before, these units are an upgrade from the Briggs and Stratton generators. I want to emphasize that Briggs and Stratton already build a very good generator, therefore, GE units are just superb.  You will be happy owning one.

Generac Electric has many standby generator sizes ranging from 8KW to 48KW.
