The Importance of Keeping Up with Generator Maintenance

Maintaining Your Backup Generator

As amazing as your generator is, it still requires maintenance in order to ensure smooth operation.

Watching a thunderstorm from a distance can be soothing. It’s also fun to enjoy one when you’re trying to get to sleep, especially if you’re the type of person who loves to nestle under the blankets while thunder booms and rain pounds on your windows. But your generator won’t appreciate the wild weather as much. Here is why keeping up with generator maintenance is so vital.

How Does It Work?

When the generator needs maintenance, you will know it. When the next blackout hits, your generator will automatically kick on. That means you’ll still have electricity, light, heat, air conditioning, and most importantly – internet access. Make sure your house is the place to be, especially as a storm shelter for your neighborhood.

The fuel and lubrication system focuses on the fuel lines for the generator. But more importantly, the oil filter needs to be checked. How much oil is left also needs to be checked on regularly.

The hoses and coolant that serve the cooling system are also essential. Without making sure they work, your backup generator could blow out when you need it most.

Overall, the generator should be functional and not struggling to start up or shut down. If there are any problems, repairs and replacements become necessary. The battery, engine, and other electrical components need to be well-maintained too.
