Care Home Diesel Generators

Reliable Standby Generators for Your Residential Home: Ensuring Uninterrupted Power and Peace of Mind

Residential Home Generators

In a mains outage or power cut, facilities without backup power supplies suffer, and their normal operations grind to a halt.

For critical sites like residential or nursing homes that provide healthcare support and assistance, the loss of power can be detrimental to not only operations but also the lives of the residents under your care.

Whilst it is not a legal requirement for care homes to have standby power installed, they must have a backup plan should the mains inevitably fail.

Residential Home Back Up Generators

Picture an evening and your residents are settling in for the night. The mains fails and you’re left in the dark, how do you operate in these conditions? This is why it is highly recommended for residential homes to have back up power.

Generators ensure your operations can continue as normal without any downtime in power. They provide peace of mind, knowing that your residents are safe and protected. Key elements such as medical equipment and storage, lighting, lifts and electric beds or hoists, all rely on power to operate. So, what do you do if you don’t have a backup supply?

Not only is a backup power supply essential to every day operations, but it can also be a key factor when people are considering your nursing home for care of a loved one. Residential homes that have invested in critical power equipment may be more likely to be chosen for residents than those without due to the extra level of safety and security having continuous power provides. This ultimately provides additional revenue for your facility.

Standby power supplies can also allow your facility to take on residents with more critical care needs. With no downtime in power supply, residents that require 24/7 care and monitoring can be supported through your facility.

What Solutions are Available to Care Homes?

Diesel Generators

Diesel generators are an excellent choice for care homes due to their reliability and efficiency in providing a backup power supply during mains outages. Diesel generators can run for extended periods and provide stable power with the right maintenance. These machines are also complete with an auto start function, meaning that when the mains fails, your generator will immediately start and provide backup power to your care home.

UPS Systems

UPS (uninterruptible power supply) systems provide immediate, short-term power during a mains outage, ensuring that a facility does not go one second without power. UPS systems and generators can work together to provide a seamless long running power supply. UPS systems aren’t crucial for every site, but if you cannot loose power for even one second, then they are an absolute must.

UPS Systems

Battery Storage Systems 

Battery storage systems offer a reliable and eco-friendly backup energy supply that can also be used as an additional revenue stream by selling energy back to the grid during peak times. These systems store unused electricity and will supply your facility during a mains outage as a backup power supply. Many businesses are opting for this new technology to provide better resilience, cost savings and a sustainable future.
