One of the biggest turn-offs people think of when it comes to buying a generator is the potential noise they believe they can produce. Regardless of the power they give when there isn’t any available; the potential noise can be a deal-breaker whether it's really needed or not.

Some people don't even consider that a genset can be made virtually silent with clever acoustic treatment. They conclude that the level of a generators sound is what it is and should they want to get a quieter one, they may feel that they are forced to buy a newer more expensive set. The truth is many of the newer generators are quieter than the old ones and very affordable as well as far more fuel efficient.

Silent generators can be a more effective solution than generators that put out a lot of noise, for a number of reasons. If you are strapped for cash or don’t want to replace your current generator, there are ways you can make it quieter by yourself. You could try building an enclosure around the generator which will help to muffle the noises it makes. People have used a simple cardboard box in the past with success. Mufflers for motorcycles could also be of use to you.

The idea is to take away the vibrations that a generator puts out, which will quieten much of the noise that it makes. Some generators have been built with a low noise output in mind, using sound attenuated canopies to reduce the noise output. By purchasing a generator like this, you can be sure yours won't disturb neighbouring houses, businesses, families or patients and residents.

Let’s talk about the benefits of owning a silent generator:

The Benefits Of Owning A Silent Generator

  • Cost effectiveness - a silent generator is more economical. Diesel costs less than petrol or gasoline. They are more fuel efficient, too, as fuel consumption is reduced, you’ll also find that exhaust emissions are reduced. If you are running a business and you are looking for ways to meet your budget, or you are simply trying to cut down on utility bills, this could be a good choice.
  • Easier to Maintain - They require less maintenance than petrol generators because they have no spark wires or spark plugs. One less thing to worry about.
  • Lighter than other generators - the power they produce is much more reliable, and they usually use advanced engineering to ensure a slicker model all round. They won’t be an eyesore outside of your business or home.
  • No More Noise - lawnmower noises that most generators tend to make could drive customers and other people away. You could also end up on the wrong side of your neighbours.
  • Safety Features - many silent generators come with safety features built in. This can vary set to set, but will usually include a spark resistor, which prevents the generator from sparking and causing fires or explosions, automatic low oil shutdown, causing the generator to shut down before the oil runs out; and the fully enclosed covering, which protects the generator from the elements and keeps the sound levels down.
  • Long Lasting and durable - you can expect to get 9-12 hours out of your generator depending on how many watts you need. Even the wheels are durable and will stand the test of time.

A silent generator could be just what you’re looking for whether you need one for your home or for your business. They are quiet and discreet, as well as convenient as they allow you to have power for longer periods of time.The latest technology has greatly improved the safety and durability of these generators in recent years.

One of the excellent benefits of choosing an enclosed set is that they are so quiet. There are lots of reasons that you might be looking for a generator that runs quietly. A silent diesel generator is ideal for working environments, where you want to protect your workers' hearing and ensure that everyone can hear each other clearly. In a domestic environment, you don't want the sound of your generator disturbing your peace and quiet. For the quietest and most efficient configuration, we recommend water cooled four cycle diesel generators for most domestic and business purposes in the UK.
