Generator Accessories

A generator, transfer switch, and fuel are the basic elements of a standby generator system. But generator accessories can enhance the performance and service life of your generator. There is an implied trust in the home standby generator system. The owner has made an investment in the system, and expects it to be available when needed. These are complex systems, and require some monitoring. Generator manufacturers now are adding remote monitoring capability to their units. These generator accessories can be as simple as a small remote display with indicator lights, or as complex as a wireless transmitter that uses cellular to report generator status back to your phone, or computer. The cost of the generator accessories you purchase can be considered an investment in your system and an investment well spent.

Maintenance Kits

One of the most important generator accessories you might need is a maintenance kit. Typically these kits include the replaceable, consumable components used in your generator. Spark Plug, air filter, oil filter, and oil are the service items included in a typical maintenance kit. Depending on your climate it may be to your benefit to use synthetic motor oil in your generator. Synthetic 5W-30 oil is recommended for use in all climates while the viscosity of the conventional oil used in your generator is determined by the climate extremes the unit is installed in.

Cold Weather Kits

Climate can impact more than the oil. Being exposed to the elements can affect your generators ability to start. Cold weather kits consisting of battery warming and carburetor warming elements are available. These kits have electric warming elements that are controlled by a thermostat and activate when the temp reaches the low end of its threshold.

GenPads and UltraPads

Installing your home standby generator presents the opportunity to add generator accessories. While it is acceptable to install a generator on a leveled bed of gravel, a flat concrete slab, or even the ground, a generator pad could give you a secure base on which to install your generator and protect your investment. These pads are made of formed concrete, with some having reinforcing fibers embedded into it to strengthen it. 3” pads are acceptable for general use, while many manufacturers are making 4” heavy duty pads for use in hurricane prone areas. The generator pads also may have mounting holes cast into them which will line up with corresponding holes and bolts in the generator, ensuring a secure and stable installation. Always check with the local authority having jurisdiction for the building and electrical codes pertaining to generator mounting and installation requirements.

Portable Generator Accessories

Portable generators allow you to take the power where you go, and have power when you need it. Wheel kits can make the job of moving the generator that much easier. A generator cover can protect your investment when it is not in use.

Cords, Inlet Boxes and Plugs

Most of the larger portable units have standard electrical outlets and a higher capability twist lock outlet. To make use of that outlet, you will need an extension cord with the proper twist lock ends. These cords are made of a heavier gauge wire, which is necessary to carry the higher voltage and amperage. There are also twist lock cords that have 4 standard outlets at the end to allow safe use of the generator, without multiple extension cords running all over your property.

Portable generators with the appropriate capacity to back up some of your home systems should be connected to the house in safe, code compliant manner. To do this you would need a generator inlet box, which then would be wired to a transfer switch or at the least an interlock kit. The transfer switch is a switch that installs between your home main breaker panel and the utility meter socket. In the case of an outage, the user switches the power from the utility to the power provided by the generator. Home standby generators use automatic transfer switches, while portable units utilize a manual transfer switch. Another way to connect a portable unit is through the lockout breaker. A breaker is installed in the main panel. This breaker is connected to the generator inlet circuit, and the portable generator plugged into the inlet box. This system is called a lockout because there is a lever installed in the main panel, physically preventing the utility power and the generator breaker to be in the closed position at the same time. When one breaker is switched to the closed (on) position, a lever pushes the other breaker to the open (off) position, preventing dangerous backfeeding.

Paint Kits

As much as mechanical maintenance is needed, physical maintenance is needed as well. Generator manufacturers provide paint kits as generator accessories to ensure the housing of the generator maintains its integrity. Manufacturers also provide fascia kits to install at the base of the generator. These kits provide an added level of protection as well as giving the installed generator a nice finished look.

Apelectric.com really got my generator out quickly. I placed my order first thing in the morning, and it shipped that afternoon. It was simple to choose the right maintenance kit and battery. The options just popped up at check out. I have already recommended their website to the electrician who installed my generator.
