Yes! In fact, the most common brands and models of generators can use either natural gas or propane fuel with only minor configuration. For most common brands of generator, your fuel source (either natural gas or propane) can be easily selected by turning a valve inside the generator and adjusting settings on the controller.
While every precaution and calculation is taken when choosing the appropriate generator to prevent the possibility of an overload, each Generac Generator is equipped with overload protection. In the event an overload happened, it will trip a circuit breaker that will shut down the generator before damage is done. Once the circuit load has been reduced, a simple breaker reset will restore power.
Absolutely. Especially in our northern climate, we install all generators with a cold weather package to make sure you're ready for anything mother nature can throw at us.
On generators 20kW or smaller, routine maintenance should be performed every 200 hours of run time, 48 hours of continuous, uninterrupted runtime, or every 12 months, whichever is first. Contact us today to learn about our regular maintenance packages! On larger generators, it varies a lot on the model, type of fuel, and how you are using it.
