10 Benefits of Home Standby Generators

10 Benefits of Home Standby Generators.

Today, we’re going to talk about backup power solutions and explore why standby generators such as the Sentry V reign supreme for safeguarding your home, cottage or small business during power outages.

  1. Automatic Operation: Standby generators offer a worry-free experience. Once installed, they automatically detect power outages and kick into action without you having to lift a finger. When the electricity grid goes down, standby generators step up to the plate. They can keep critical appliances like refrigerators, heating and cooling systems, and lights running smoothly, ensuring your comfort and safety during those challenging moments. Sentry V comes standard with ATS.
  2. Tailored Power Capacity: Homes come in all shapes and sizes, and so do standby generators. You can find the right size to match your home’s specific power needs. Whether it’s a home, farm, cottage or operate a small business, there’s a standby generator that fits just right.
  3. Quiet and Unobtrusive: Nobody likes a noisy neighbor, and the same goes for generators. The Sentry V Standby generators are designed to operate quietly, so you can enjoy a peaceful environment even during a power outage. No need to worry about unwanted noise disruptions.
  4. Safety and Convenience: Safety matters, and standby generators have got that covered. They are professionally installed, maintained,  and typically connected to your home’s natural gas or propane supply. They are designed to run for longer periods of time and come with a slew of safety features.
  5. Remote Monitoring: Many modern standby generators offer remote monitoring and control capabilities WIFI modules. Through smartphone apps or web portals, you can check the status of your generator, and monitor its performance. WIFI Modules are a standard feature for the Sentry V Standby generator. Now you can monitor from anywhere in the world.
  6. Weather-Resistant Design: Mother Nature can be unpredictable, but Sentry V standby generators are built to withstand Canadian climates. With weather-resistant enclosures, they are ready to face various weather conditions, ensuring reliable operation when you need it most.
  7. A Valuable Home Addition: Standby generators are significantly more expensive than a off the shelf portable generator. For many reasons, but Standby generators can also add value to your home $$. If you decide to sell in the future, potential buyers may view it as a desirable feature, giving your property an extra edge in the market.
  1. Seamless Integration with Home Electrical System: Standby generators are permanently installed and connected directly to your home’s electrical system. This integration ensures a seamless transfer of power during an outage. Unlike portable generators that require extension cords and individual connections, standby generators provide a hassle-free solution that maintains the integrity of your home’s electrical setup.
  2. No Refueling Hassles: Standby generators run on a continuous fuel source, typically natural gas or propane, which is supplied directly from utility lines or on-site storage tanks. Unlike portable generators that need frequent refueling, standby generators save you from the inconvenience of monitoring fuel levels and making trips to refill the tank during extended outages.
  3. Extended Lifespan: Standby generators are designed and built to be durable and long-lasting. With proper maintenance and care, these robust machines can serve your home reliably for many years. Their high-quality construction and protection from the elements contribute to their extended lifespan, making them a wise investment for the long run.

To sum it up, standby generators are a reliable, safe and convenient solution for keeping your home powered up during outages. With automatic operation, continuous power supply, and quiet performance, they offer peace of mind and ensure you can weather any storm without worries.

Interested in investing in a standby generator for your home, office, or cottage? Sentry V generators are perfect for our crazy Canadian climates. They come standard with an Automatic Transfer switch and WIFI module, in either propane or Natural gas.

Protect your Greenhouse with a Generator!

Greenhouses are fundamental in Canada, allowing us to enjoy Canadian-grown products year-round. They provide excellent pest prevention, additional growing options, and protection from the weather. Greenhouses grow everything from fruits and vegetables to flowers, plants, and now even marijuana. Commercial greenhouses range in size from 6,000sqft to 200,000sqft generating millions of dollars in crops. Energy costs are much different across Canada. Ontario electricity is expensive, but Quebec offers special rates to help greenhouse costs. Unless you are located in a region that offers special rates there is no denying that electricity has become very expensive. Outside of the costs of electricity is reliability. Power outages have become more frequent and are lasting longer. To prevent power loss, it is vital to have backup power.

Generators help give peace of mind and protect from power outages, brownouts, drought, frost/cold, extreme heat, winter storms, and much more.

Generators protect vital equipment such as:

  • Ventilation fans
  • Networks of sensors
  • Boilers
  • Gas Heaters
  • Heat Mats
  • Lighting (Halogen/Fluorescent)
  • Water pumps
  • Heat pumps
  • Controls
  • Sprinklers

It’s easy to understand why generators are essential for greenhouse operations.
