(November 27, 2020) — GENERATOR. A new, more powerful addition to the Guardian series of home standby generators is available from Generac Power Systems Inc. The generator provides 24 kW of peak power—the most ever in the residential, air-cooled class—from a 70% smaller footprint than traditional generators of this power level. The purpose-built Generac G-Force engine is specifically designed for generator use. The unit is equipped with home energy monitoring technology. It is also the first generator to be bundled with Generac’s new PWRview Automatic Transfer Switch, equipped with the PWRview Home Energy Management System (HEMS). PWRview gives the homeowner insights into their daily home energy consumption, delivered through the Generac PWRview app, offered for Android and Apple devices. The smart generator comes standard with Generac’s exclusive MobileLink remote-monitoring technology that gives users access to critical information including the generator’s current operating status, while also providing helpful maintenance schedules all from any smartphone, tablet, or computer. generac.com.
APP. Marshall Excelsior (MEC) has introduced its new app, available in app stores by searching “Marshall Excelsior.” The app links to an MEC product catalog, service handbook, and videos, as well as other literature. The app’s Gas Appliance System Check includes a place to record customer information; appliance check that answers by a simple yes, no, or N/A; and a place for notes, installation photos, and an electronic signing feature that allows customers to sign and immediately generate a finished PDF form to be emailed to the office and customer. The Gas System Check tool offers a place to record customer information, document container information, and a regulator check that eliminates the need to keep track of stickers or write down regulator info. By scanning the Excela-Flor regulator barcode, the tag information automatically populates the form. A Pressure Test/System Leak Test or an individual System Leak Test, also included on the Gas System Check, can be completed with the app. marshallexcelsior.com
