Having a backup power source is reassuring. You know that you will have power for your critical home systems and be able to protect your family from the effects of power outages. Keep your generator ready to go by keeping it maintained. Your owner’s manual will tell you what maintenance is recommended for your model and what supplies you need. Most standby generators need service after two years or after running for 200 hours. Check your oil once the engine cools, to see if it is dirty and needs a change. Tackle maintenance yourself by following the steps listed in your owner’s manual to change the oil, oil filter, spark plugs, and air filter.
Of course, if you don’t want to handle the maintenance yourself, you can call us to schedule a convenient and affordable maintenance visit.
