We had Alex over at our restaurant today to fix our AC. He is a polite, patient and honest individual. I was late for our appointment however he took the time to speak with my parents (who speaks very little english) and was able to get started on our problem right away. By the time I arrived he had already pinpointed down the problem and was already looking at the solution. Although we are in a commercial building and had agreed on a price over the phone and when I arrived Alex explained to me that we have a residential unit so the service price would be adjusted. After the AC was up and running. I had extra concerns and he was able to provide us with a solution right away. We also received same day service and found his prices to be fair. We look forward to working with them in the future.

Absolutely the best heating/air conditioning company in the Barrie/Innisfil area. My furnace stopped working the other day during a cold-snap, but Northwind Heating/A.C. promptly sent a service technician to my house to fix it for me. They are honest, hard working guys that truly care about customer service and customer satisfaction, (which is rare these days), and I couldn't be happier with the quality of service they've provided. Pricing is very fair too, they don't try to rip you off. There's a reason this company is rated so highly on Google reviews, it's because they really are the best. If you need any work done on your heating/AC unit, I highly recommend giving Northwind a call. Awesome team. Thanks guys!

Natural Gas & Propane Generator FAQs

A backup generator, also known as a standby generator, is a device that provides emergency power to a building or home when the primary power source is disrupted. Backup generators are designed to automatically switch on within seconds of a power outage. They provide an uninterrupted power supply to critical appliances such as lighting, heating, cooling systems, security devices, and medical equipment. Backup generators are essential in regions that experience frequent power outages due to extreme weather conditions, equipment failure or other emergencies.

Backup generators work by generating electricity through an engine that’s powered by fuel – usually natural gas, propane, or diesel. They are installed outside a building and are connected to the electrical system through an automatic transfer switch. When there is a power outage, the transfer switch automatically detects the loss of power and signals the backup generator to start up. Within seconds, the generator engine starts running and begins to generate electricity. Once the generator has reached a stable operating speed and voltage, the transfer switch seamlessly switches the building’s electrical load from the primary power grid to the generator. The generator continues to supply power until the primary grid power is restored. At this point, the transfer switch switches back to the primary power source, and the generator engine is turned off.

Yes, you should clear any clutter around the installation area and ensure there is a clear path for the installers to work. Additionally, it’s a good idea to make sure the installation site is accessible and that there is enough room for the AC unit to be installed.

Manufacturers typically recommend that you service your generator at least once a year, although the frequency may vary depending on how often it’s used.

During the annual service, our qualified technicians will inspect, clean, and test various components of the generator, including the filters, oil and fuel levels, the spark plugs and other parts, and any other required repairs.

It’s also essential to regularly perform routine checks of your generator, such as inspecting the air intake and exhaust to ensure it’s free from debris or obstructions, checking the battery level and connections, and running it for a few minutes every month to ensure it’s in good working order.

Backup generators can be noisy, depending on the type and model. Generators that run on diesel fuel are typically the loudest, while natural gas and propane generators produce less noise.

Backup generators are designed to start up automatically and typically take a few seconds to start producing electricity after they detect a power outage. This timeframe is called the “transfer time,” which is the time it takes for the generator to start up and connect the electrical load to the generator power source.

What You Need to Know About

How Backup Generators Work

In the event of a power outage, your backup home generator will switch on automatically and continue running until power is restored – whether that takes 10 minutes or 10 days.

With a Generac backup home generator, you can rest easy knowing that crucial equipment in your home will continue to function during a power outage. Here’s how it works:

1. Power is Lost

Storms or equipment failures may cause your electricity to shut off.

2. The Generator Senses the Outage

Your generator can sense the power outage within a matter of seconds.

3. The Generator Turns On

Your generator will kick in automatically, whether you are home or not.

4. Power is Restored

Power is restored in your home until the utility power turns back on.
