How Generators Can Save The Holiday Season

Dec 19, 2023

The holiday season is a time of warmth, joy, and togetherness. As we gather with loved ones to celebrate, the last thing we want is a power outage disrupting our festive plans. That’s where Zabatt Power Systems comes in, your trusted partner in generator installation, maintenance, and repair. Specializing in turnkey solutions, our expertise in repair and maintenance also extends to all brands, including Cummins, Generac, and HiPower, to ensure your holidays remain bright even when the lights go out.

Don’t Let Lights Overload Your Electrical Circuits

During the holiday season, twinkling Christmas lights are a favorite decoration for many people. However, it is important to be mindful of the electrical circuit that powers them. The standard electrical circuits in homes and businesses are designed to handle typical usage and can become overwhelmed by the extra load of Christmas lights and other festive decorations. When circuits become overloaded, circuit breakers and fuses may trip or blow, which can affect the performance of other electrical equipment in the home or business. If you are experiencing this issue, consider using a small generator to power your Christmas display and create an impressive holiday decoration worthy of the Griswold family without putting too much stress on the electrical system.

Keep Businesses Operating

During the holiday season, some people get to take a break and spend time with their loved ones. However, not all professionals get to enjoy this luxury. Certain businesses, such as hospitals, data centers gas stations, and some restaurants, continue to operate during the festive period. As per Bloomberg Businessweek, every minute of power outage could lead to significant financial losses for large companies. For healthcare providers, a loss of power could even result in the loss of life.

It’s important to note that simply buying and installing a backup generator doesn’t guarantee it will work during a crisis. Unused generators are prone to failure from simply sitting idle, so it’s crucial to regularly test your generator to ensure it’s reliable. Additionally, poor fuel storage can cause serious problems, so it’s essential to follow best practices and procedures.

It is a common practice to use red containers for storing gas, blue containers for kerosene, and yellow containers for diesel. This color-coding system will help you avoid any confusion regarding the type of fuel you are storing. All fuel deteriorates over time, so it is advisable to add STA-BIL or PRI-G to the mixture if your gas is in storage. It is recommended that you store the fuel in a clean, cool place, preferably away from the work area to reduce the risk of accidents.
