Looking For A Quiet Generator?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Our lives are getting busier, and nosier. With many of us working from home, we still desire our home to be a peaceful and restful space. With the annual hurricane season in South Florida, power outages can strike at the most inconvenient moment. A Generator can restore the norm in your household. The problem is that many of them are noisy and invasive. There are however some quiet and efficient generators that you should consider. Here’s a look at the right quiet generator for you and your home.

Quiet Generators For The Whole Home

Whole-home generators offer a quiet but powerful solution. Generac’s range of whole-home backup systems comes in many convenient options. They run on either natural gas or liquid propane fuel. You can decide to back up your entire home, or only your most essential items.

Here’s a look at Generac’s key noise inhibiting benefits.

Choose The Size That’s Right

Generac offers over 35 different generator options for your exact needs. The most compact is a Powerpact 7.5kW generator to power up those essential items such as the water heater or air conditioning system. On the other end of the spectrum is the impressive 80kW Protector unit. This unit includes circuit power protection for your home. The benefit of choice is that you can decide on the unit that matches your needs. If you need a more compact generator, the benefit is that the noise footprint will be lower than a larger unit. This way you’re not generating power that you aren’t using. Be sure to speak with a licensed electrician to get the best advice on what size you need.

Personalized Placement

Whole-home generators are installed at your home. This means that your generator installer can find the best position on your property. If you don’t want it close to your bedrooms, you don’t have to install it. A licensed technician will be able to advise you on the best placement for your generator. This comes with obvious noise benefits as you don’t have to sit with a generator right outside the place you want to relax.

Intelligent Quiet Design

Whole-home generators are designed to be permanently installed. Although not all as compact as portable generators, they are way quieter. This is due to the soundproofing that goes into the design of premium generators. Generac is a testimony to this with their full range of whole-home generators. Portable generators are generally lighter and mobile. This is often achieved by allowing for a less soundproof casing. The result is a noisy generator. Generac’s generators are preferred by 7 out of every 10 homeowners who use whole-home backup systems.

Quiet-Test™ Self-Test Mode

It’s important to test your generator regularly. This can be a noisy procedure. Most Generac’s range comes with what’s known as Quiet-Test™ Self-Test Mode. This innovative technology allows Generac units to run at a lower RPM while being tested. This means a quieter test and a saving on fuel. A Generac authorized dealer can conduct all generator testing required

Robustly Built

Generac whole-home generators come with a durable all-aluminum enclosure. This RhinoCoat™ technology is powder-coated, which makes for a corrosion-resistant construction. Generators can create more noise when their outer casing begins to wear and rust. By protecting this casing, additional noise is eliminated.
