Keeping Your Lights on Through Blackouts & More

The Atlanta metroplex is no stranger to some crazy weather, including ferocious thunderstorms, hail, tornadoes. 

However, these are just a few of the things that can take power offline for customers everywhere. When your business depends on electricity, the last thing you want is a blackout halting productivity. 

Blackouts can also lead to lost work, damaged inventory, and even cause your property to become unsafe for customers and employees alike. 

Fowler Electric understands how devastating an outage can be, and we offer services for equipment that can help you avoid blackouts for long periods of time.

Benefits of a Whole Home Generator

Investing in a whole-home generator can provide peace of mind and convenience during power outages. With a whole home generator, you can keep your lights on, maintain access to important appliances, and ensure the safety and comfort of your family during unexpected blackouts.

Benefits of a whole home generator include:

  • Automatic power restoration
  • Protection of essential appliances and electronics
  • Prevention of food spoilage
  • Increased home security
  • Comfort and convenience during outages

Our team at Fowler Electric can help you select the right whole home generator for your needs and provide professional installation services to keep your home powered when it matters most.


Generator Installation & Maintenance

An emergency generator system can provide your business with backup power in the event of an outage. Emergency generators come in a wide variety of styles, sizes, and capacities, ensuring your business will have the quantity of power it needs to fulfill your goals when the grid goes down. Some businesses opt for a generator that can simply provide the bare minimum of emergency power so that safety isn’t compromised. Others opt for a system that will provide enough power to allow them to carry on as though nothing ever happened. Whatever you’re looking for, Fowler Electric can help you with generator selection, installation, and maintenance services.

Standby generators are extremely popular for a number of different businesses because they’re always ready to fire up at a moment’s notice, and they can come in humongous capacities that generate enough power to restore you to full operation. Whether you’re looking to install a standby generator for your business or you’re looking for someone who can conduct thorough maintenance on your system, give us a call.

What are the Signs That Your Commercial Generator Needs Maintenance or Repair?

Recognizing the signs that your commercial generator needs maintenance or repair is crucial to ensure its reliable operation during power outages. 

Here are some common signs to watch for:

  • Warning Lights or Alarms: Modern generators often have warning lights or alarms that indicate various issues. If you see warning lights or hear alarms, consult the generator's manual or a technician for guidance.
  • Reduced Output: If your generator is not producing the expected power output, it may require maintenance or repair. This could manifest as dimming lights, equipment not functioning properly, or not meeting the load demand.
  • Excessive Smoke: Unusual levels of smoke, especially black or blue smoke, coming from the exhaust can be a sign of engine problems or fuel issues.
  • Unusual Noises: Strange noises like knocking, clunking, or rattling may indicate mechanical issues within the generator or its engine.
  • Hard Starting or Failure to Start: If the generator has trouble starting or won't start at all, this could be a sign of issues with the engine, battery, or starter motor.
  • Leaks or Puddles: The presence of oil, fuel, or coolant leaks around the generator indicates a problem that needs attention.
  • Vibration and Shaking: Excessive vibration or shaking during operation can be a sign of misalignment, loose components, or engine issues.
  • Overheating: If the generator runs too hot or overheats, it could be due to cooling system problems, such as a malfunctioning radiator or coolant issues.
  • Corrosion and Rust: Visible signs of corrosion or rust on the generator's exterior or components can indicate that it needs protection or repair.
  • Fuel or Oil Odors: Unusual or strong odors of fuel, oil, or burning can signal leaks or combustion issues.
  • Irregular Fuel Consumption: If the generator consumes more fuel than usual, it may indicate inefficiencies or fuel system problems.
  • Frequency and Voltage Fluctuations: The generator's output should maintain a consistent frequency and voltage. Any irregularities in this output may point to electrical issues.
  • Control Panel Malfunctions: If the control panel displays erratic readings or malfunctions, it can indicate electrical or control system problems.
  • Dirty or Clogged Filters: Dirty air, fuel, or oil filters can reduce the generator's efficiency and performance.
  • Poor Performance During Load Testing: During regular load bank testing, if the generator fails to meet load requirements, it's a clear sign that maintenance or repairs are needed.
  • Increased Fuel or Oil Consumption: A noticeable increase in fuel or oil consumption may indicate inefficiencies or wear in the generator.
  • Age and Maintenance Schedule: Generators have recommended maintenance intervals. If your generator is approaching these intervals, it may be time for scheduled maintenance.

If you observe any of these signs or experience any abnormal behavior with your commercial generator, it's advisable to address the issue promptly to prevent more extensive damage or system failure. Regular, proactive maintenance can help prevent many of these problems and ensure the long-term reliability of your generator.

Emergency Power Storage with a UPS System

An “uninterruptable power supply” system, or “UPS” for short, is a source of power that is designed to immediately engage in the event of an outage and prevent potentially sensitive or power-dependent equipment from ever going offline. 

These systems come in a variety of sizes, and they can offer your business an extra layer of security against the potentially dangerous impact of a blackout. 

UPS systems come in a range of sizes and output capacities, and different systems can provide enough power to handle different levels of activity for varying amounts of time.

If you’re interested in a generator or a UPS system, contact Fowler Electric and talk to a member of our team about what you’d like to be able to do in the event of an outage. From there, our team can recommend the right products and work with you to get them installed!

    As our strongest subcontractor on the project, they demonstrated a skill set invaluable to those in our industry. I formally recommend Fowler Electric for any Project they should aspire to obtain within our industry.
