Nursing Homes and Long-Term Care Facilities Need Low Maintenance Units.
Diesel generators require constant care. With engine requirements for low-sulfur diesel fuel, the fuel now needs to be reconditioned every 12-16 months to ensure stability and ease of flow. This fuel requirement, along with the maintenance of the exhaust after treatment system, requires an experienced facility manager to handle this process. If you do not have this person on staff, you would need to turn to a third-party provider for the service, which will add cost. It will also require the rental of a backup generator during servicing when not using a MPS solution.
To reduce the maintenance burden, many short and long-term care facilities are turning to natural gas generators, as they need little maintenance. They are also eco-friendly with fewer emissions and a smaller carbon footprint.
Healthcare Facilities Need Custom Backup/Emergency Solutions
Generac has more than five decades of experience in working with health care facilities—it’s one of the reasons we have expanded our product line to meeting ongoing needs. We have added large kW diesel generators to meet growing power needs. At the same, we developed innovative natural gas and bi-fuel generators, providing longer runtime to meet code requirements as well as provide extended protection for patients, staff, and visitors.
