Size Up Your Generator Needs - Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 04, 2017
South Shore Generator - Kohler 8.5 RES-QS7

Even if it is a milder hurricane season this year, one tropical storm can inflict a lot of damage. So, how to size a generator and use it safely?

The experts at Consumer Reports say to pick a model with a wattage at least equal to the total of what you're powering. Manufacturers also suggest totaling the higher surge watts some appliances draw when they cycle on. A small portable, up to 4,000 watts, can typically power a refrigerator, sump pump, microwave, TV, and a few lights but you may want more oomph than that. Here are some recommended generators from our tests ranging from medium to large.

Midsized portable or small stationary, 5,000 to 8,500 watts

What it powers. Everything that a small model can power plus a portable heater (1,300 watts), computer (250 watts), heating system (500 watts), second pump (600 watts), and more lights (400 watts).

Recommended stationary. Kohler 8.5 RES-QS7, $3,200. Stationary generators turn themselves on and off when needed and run on propane or natural gas for longer runtime and safer fueling. The Kohler delivered smooth, steady power and offers 7,000 watts with natural gas and 8,500 using propane. It was also among the quietest of the stationary models we tested, and it shuts down automatically if the engine-oil level gets low. On the downside, it's pricey and requires professional installation.

Large stationary, 10,000 to 15,000 watts

What it powers. Everything you can run with a midsized model plus a choice of small water heater (3,000 watts), central air conditioner (5,000 watts), electric range (5,000 watts), clothes washer (1,200 watts), or electric dryer (5,000 watts).

Recommended model. Generac 6241, $3,500. This stationary generator was top-notch at providing ample, smooth power with consistent voltage. Generac claims the unit supplies 13,000 watts using natural gas and an additional 1,000 using propane. It also comes with a transfer switch, needed for safe operation. Among features are fuel shutoff, low-oil shutoff with an indicator, and electric start.

Prepare Your Home for Winter – Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, September 12, 2016

Many homeowners overlook one of the most important things to prepare for when the winter season rolls around—snow storms. Experts believe homeowners are unprepared for winter storms, putting their families and their home in danger. Make sure you take the following into consideration and ensure your home is both warm and safe.

Major Dangers Associated with Winter Storms

Homeowners can face major dangers when winter weather rolls around, including damage from the weight of ice, snow and sleet. In the cases of major snowstorms, families can even be trapped in their homes due to blocked or frozen entryways. Cracked or burst water pipes connected to anything from steam and hot water heating, or a fire-protection system, can be extremely costly. Even after the storm, melting snow can cause major flooding.

Tips to Winterize and Protect Your Home

Though the list of winter weather dangers runs long, there are 10 easy steps that can ease or prevent these issues, all while creating a safer home environment during emergencies.

  1. Install weather stripping.
  2. Have your furnace/heating system serviced at the beginning of each season to ensure it runs properly, and have the filters changed.
  3. Move furniture away from vents.
  4. Add rock salt and sand to emergency kits to help melt ice on walkways.
  5. Install roof-heating cables to prevent ice dams on roofs and gutters.
  6. Insulate pipes.
  7. Place a cover over attic stairs.
  8. Insulate outlets with gasket covers.
  9. Invest in an automatic home standby generator, such as those from Generac, that automatically provide power for heat and electricity when there is a power outage. They turn on as soon as the power goes out and stay on until utility power is restored.
  10. If you have extra money in your budget, go for attic insulation, which can save as much as 30 percent on heating costs.

Basic winterizing for a home can be done for less than $200, but by investing in installations like attic insulation and a Generac home standby generator, you get the best level of protection from winter storms. For more information contact South Shore Generator.

A Mobile Link App to Monitor Your Home Standby Generator – Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 09, 2016

Generac Power Systems has a mobile app for the popular Mobile Link cellular remote monitoring system. The apps make it easier than ever for consumers to monitor their home standby generators using their mobile device.

Actually, 86 percent of smartphone owners use their smartphone for ‘just-in-time’ information, like getting current traffic information or seeking help in an emergency. Mobile Link and the app are designed for these people. They want to know right away when their generator is running or when it needs maintenance. The Mobile Link app makes that information easier than ever for customers to get.

The Mobile Link app is currently available for both iOS® and Android™ devices, and it’s free and downloadable on the iTunes™ App Store, Google Play™ and the Amazon Appstore.

Introduced in 2013, Mobile Link lets home standby generator owners view their generator’s status and maintenance needs, set the unit’s exercise schedule, review its running and maintenance history, and receive push notifications to indicate status changes. In June 2014, new functionality was introduced that lets owners arrange to send notifications to their local dealer. This makes maintenance easier, since dealers can spot any issues in advance and can ensure the generator is operating smoothly, no matter the homeowner’s location.

The Mobile Link device attaches in minutes to the outside of the Generac automatic backup generator enclosure and connects to the generator’s controller. Mobile Link sends data via cellular network because it is easier to configure and more reliable than the Ethernet and telephone connections used by many competitive monitoring solutions.

The Mobile Link device has an MSRP of only $279. The first year of cellular data is included with the purchase, after which homeowners can renew for $99 per year for a subscription, or at a discounted rate of $249 for a three-year subscription, less than many other competitive solutions.

Mobile Link is compatible with most Generac, Honeywell, Centurion, Siemens, and Eaton brand standby generators up to 20 kW manufactured from 2008, and 22 to 60 kW standby generators manufactured from 2010.
