The Star of the Show:
Cummins Power

Frank Assaro, Sales Manager, Cummins Power Systems and Bob Kenzie, a Cummins Onan dealer, give an education on residential standby generators. These generators are on standby for emergency applications during power failures, potentially saving homes and small businesses thousands of dollars in losses due to no electricity. The peace of mind brought by residential standby generators includes maintaining small business operations, food refrigeration and freezing, possible health needs, and basic comforts. A visit to a home shows how the generators are designed to fit in with exterior landscaping with tasteful style. Also shown is how the generator taps into a home’s electrical system, and how to choose the generator right for your home or business.

Power Protector

Power Protector Severe storms, grid failures or overloaded circuits – all these can cause power outages that can wreak havoc on any home or business.

Every family wants the peace of mind that their home or business will still run at full tilt during a power outage or any other electrical disturbance. With the Cummins Onan® Residential Generator, your family won’t lose power and will find that peace of mind they’ve been searching for.

Besides providing you with knowing there won’t be an interruption in power for your home or business, here are some of the outstanding benefits that you’ll reap with the RS20A Residential Standby Generator from Cummins:

• Weather resistant aluminum housing for protection from the elements.

• Innovative molded polymer installation base which removes the need of a concrete pad.

• Internet remote modeling and email notification to notify you of updates.

• Five year, 2000 hour limited warranty.

Just like with every Cummins Residential Standby Generator system, the RS20A has three key components:

The Generator: Produces electricity for essential or selected systems like cooling, heating, refrigeration, security and lighting. Your backup needs, simple or more extensive, determine the size and output of the unit.

The Transfer Switch: Immediately senses when power is interrupted and transfers power generation responsibility to the generator. Senses when power is restored and transfers the load back to the utility source and signals the generator to cool off and shut down.

The Service Entrance Breaker: Provides protection to your transfer switch, internal breakers and circuits and generator due to electrical strikes and power surges.

Tune in to Designing Spaces™ on February 21st at 7:30 am (ET/PT) and watch the “Protecting Your Home and Family” segment that features Cummins and their RS20A Residential Generator.
