The Most Important Things To Consider When Purchasing A Home Standby Generator

Posted by Aurora Generators on

A home standby generator is a major purchase and should be amortized over its expected life. A diesel generator can last 15 to 20 years. For most residential applications a high quality diesel generator will last a lifetime. For this reason, we recommend the purchase of a high quality Aurora diesel generator with suitable features for your application. A cheap or bargain priced generator will become an expensive lesson when they fail, or can greatly effect the safety and well being of your family.

If you are thinking about buying a ‘Made In China’ generator or from another foreign country, do yourself a favor and consider the following:

Many foreign country generators do not have North American required EPA approval and or fake phony environment certificates. It is difficult to verify their certificates authenticity and the foreign manufacturers know that, so they claim they have EPA approval but most do not.

Most foreign made non-EPA compliant generators have terrible fuel economy, produce excessive emissions and consume excessive amounts of fuel. Many of the countries that make these generators are the biggest polluters on the planet and do not have, or enforce any environmental controls.

Buying foreign generators hurts the economy here. Buying their generators not only pollutes our environment but it puts North Americans out of work, contributes to the trade deficit and devalues the US dollar

Most foreign made generators do not carry North American electrical approval or a warranty so you will be “ON YOUR OWN” if an issue arises. All Aurora Generators are manufactured and assembled with North American approved electrical components,  and carry of the best warranties in the business. We strongly stand behind our products! 

The DYNAGEN Controller we install on all our generators is the brain of your generator system. This state of the art controller is easy to use and will provide all the information you will need. The controller monitors all of the generators engine and alternator parameters. Including speed for hertz, engine oil pressure and coolant temperature as well as a variety of other generator functions. Engine shut down occurs if one of the threshold settings is not within parameters , or fails. Additional auto start/stop for automatic transfer switch grid tied home standby, or off grid home standby coupled with battery banks and auto start/stop inverters.    

A generator is a mechanical and electrical device that over time will need some service and parts. We offer parts that you can order with your generator so that you will have them handy when they are required. Just ask one of our reps to include filters at the time of your order.
