What Is a Standby Generator?

Have you ever left a store and noticed its neighboring businesses are all without power? That’s because the store you were in has a standby generator. A standby generator is a generator supplying backup power to a building that automatically kicks on when a loss of power occurs and automatically turns off when power returns. This transition happens flawlessly and often times goes unnoticed when inside a store.

A commercial standby generator:

  • Keeps the HVAC system operating
  • Keeps lights on
  • Keeps sump pumps operating
  • Keeps power running to your hot water heater
  • Keeps refrigerators running
  • Keeps security systems running
  • Keeps all electronics—computers, cash registers, etc.—running
  • And more!

Commercial Generator Repair & Maintenance from Hoffman Electrical

Depending on the size of your business, your commercial property may require a single-phase standby or a three-phase standby generator.

A single-phase standby generator is recommended for small businesses and supplies 120 to 240 volts of electricity. A three-phase commercial generator is recommended for businesses running and operating heavy machinery, large HVAC systems, large refrigeration/freezers, etc. and supplies 240 volts or more of electrical current. Some three-phase standby generators require transformers or other electrical equipment to match the electrical supply of your electrical supply company, pass government codes and jurisdictions, and may require approval of engineering plans or even an engineer’s supervision upon installation.

At Hoffman Electrical, we service and repair all brands and all sizes of generators. Give us a call at (866) 238-3243 or contact us online to request commercial generator service in Tampa or St. Petersburg, FL today!

Who Needs Emergency Power?

For some commercial buildings, not having power prevents huge losses and can even be a matter of life and death. Businesses in the Tampa area that need emergency power the most include:

  • Grocery stores – If you think the potential for food spoilage is large in your own home, picture the losses a grocery store could face if refrigeration goes out for several hours or longer. An emergency generator provides peace of mind for grocery store owners in Florida and prevents tremendous waste.
  • Government or secure buildings – Imagine if the power went out in a prison where electric door locks flew open. Or in a secure government building where vaults and other secure areas opened by themselves. Generators work to secure government buildings during a power failure.
  • Hospitals – Just think if a power failure occurred in the middle of a delicate surgery. Or if life support equipment suddenly stopped receiving power. These and other life and death situations would be catastrophic in hospital settings without emergency generators. Instantaneous backup systems kick in emergency power without any delay.

Benefits of a Commercial Generac Generator

In addition to providing backup electrical power to your businesses and its electrical devices, a Generac generator provides:

  • Automatic start capability – A generators kick on within seconds after a power outage, whether it’s due to severe weather or other disruptions. With a Generac generator, essential functions—emergency lighting, air conditioning, and cooking abilities—are undisrupted. You and your tenants can simply continue about your day (mostly) as usual.
  • Peace of mind – Since they are permanent fixtures, generators are nearly impossible to steal. When you factor in the weight of the unit and its connection to your Tampa area commercial property’s gas and electrical lines, it becomes obvious why a Generac generator isn’t a target for theft.
  • Safety and convenience – With a backup generator, you never have to worry about toxic exhaust because the unit is installed a safe distance from your business. Also, there is no need to worry about refueling because a Generac generator is permanently hooked into your property’s gas supply.
  • Low operating costs – The costs associated with a standby generator are much lower than those associated with other forms of backup power. The cost of replacing malfunctioning equipment during a power outage can exceed the cost of installing a standby generator.

Don’t sit without power for longer than you have to! Schedule an appointment for Generac generator installation with Hoffman Electrical if you own a property in Hillsborough or Pinellas County.
