Like a puppy, a generator isn't just for Christmas, it's for a lifetime. Or more accurately 25 years. When purchasing a generator, here are a few things to consider:

  1. Size - The size of a generator is determined by the amount of equipment you want to backup, whether its a hundred computers or a large data centre.
  2. Planning Permission - Council has different regulations in place, depending on the size of the unit. Planning permission can take 4-6 weeks and sometimes even longer.
  3. Runtimes - The fuel tank in your generator is dictated by the length of time you want to support your equipment for. Put simply the larger fuel tank you have on the generator the longer the runtime.
  4. Location - The key thing to consider is, how much space is available? Where can you fit the generator? Exhaust locations are really important to consider as well because we don't want them in the way of pathways or windows.

Unlike a puppy, you don't need to walk or feed your generator, but there are still a lot of things to consider. If you have any questions about this please contact us here. To view our selection of online generators click here.
