One of the primary reasons we only use Cummins Generators is that Cummins is the quietest generator on the market. As shown on the chart below, the popular Cummins RS-20kw at 62dba measures several times less noise than the Kohler, Generac, or Briggs generators. The larger liquid cooled Cummins 30kw and 45kw are also the quietest at 60 and 63dba.
Sound is a number one concern with local governments and Citizens Associations. Montgomery County Maryland has a prescribed noise limit of 65dba (daytime) and 55dba (night time) as measured at the receiving location which to a layman is your neighbor.
Kinzie Generators makes you a good neighbor by using only the neighborhood friendly Cummins Generators, by adhering to zoning and setback codes, and by recommending placement so that the noise will be diminished by distance. We will also provide sound attenuating enclosures and fencing and shielding.
As described in the section entitled “ON SITE DEMONSTRATION” we bring an operating unit to your home and measure the noise that might affect you or your neighbor.
