Frequently Asked Questions
  • Is it worth it to buy a generator?

    Yes, it’s incredibly worth it to buy a generator. South Africa has been plagued with electricity load shedding for over a decade and there’s no sign of things slowing down. There will be times when the country doesn’t experience load-shedding for a prolonged period of time. However, once it hits, it can be a major inconvenience.

    Generators can help you to overcome the setbacks that are caused by load shedding in Johannesburg. Depending on the size and capacity of your generator, you might be able to charge your electronics, use appliances and even watch television.
  • What should I consider when buying a generator?

    Buying a generator can be a major commitment. However, most people think it’s worth it. If you’re thinking about installing a generator, here are some things to consider:

    1. The total electrical load that will be connected to the generator

    2. The ways in which the generator can turn on. Will it need to be automatic?

    3. Suitable locations for the generator (generally outside or in a ventilated area)

    4. The noise levels of the generator

    5. The running time of the generator
  • Where can I install my generator?

    Generators need to be installed outside or in a ventilated area. It is not a good idea to install them inside. They can release deadly gases such as carbon monoxide. In addition, generators make a lot of noise and have the potential to be a major distraction.
  • Can I install a generator on my own?

    It’s highly advisable to hire a generator specialist in Johannesburg to install a generator. It’s not an easy task and it involves working with the electrical wiring of your property. Get a certified electrician to install your generator. This will ensure that the job gets done properly and as quickly as possible. Generators must be installed using an approved change-over switch. Electricians in Johannesburg will know exactly what to do and save you the stress of doing it on your own. The process of installing a generator can be incredibly dangerous.
  • What kind of items will be my generator be able to power?

    1. Lights in various rooms on the property

    2. Electrical plugs

    3. The refrigerator/freezer (advisable for preserving food)

    4. Television, decoder or computer

    5. The garage door opener (prevent things from getting stuck in the garage during load shedding)

    6. Electric stove, microwave and oven

    7. Alarm systems and electrical fencing
  • What size generator do I need?

    It depends on how many items you would like to connect to your generator and the amount of power they will all require. When you buy a generator, choose the size based on the running wattage. You can find small generators that accommodate 5 to 50 kilowatts. These are common for home usage. Subsequently, there are large industrial generators that accommodate up to 3 megawatts.
