Winter Is Coming to Maryland. Is Your Backup Generator Ready?

Maryland Backup Generator Maintenance

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, “winter will be colder and snowier than normal” here in Maryland. Is your backup generator ready?

As of September 23rd, summer is officially over. The weather has begun to cool, the days are noticeably shorter, and, before you know it, the leaves will begin to change and fall from the trees. Autumn is in full swing, which means winter is not far behind.

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, “winter will be colder and snowier than normal” here in Maryland. The coldest periods will be late December, January, mid-February, and early March.  The snowiest periods, meanwhile, will occur in “mid- and late December, early to mid-January, and late March.” Are you ready? More importantly, is your backup generator ready? Severe winter weather, such as heavy snowfall, is a surefire recipe for power outage.

A backup generator is designed to automatically kick in when your power goes out, delivering power directly to your home’s electrical system and backing up your entire home or at least the most essential items – refrigerator, sump pump, lights, air conditioning, heat, etc. Your backup generator is there when you need it most. But what if it isn’t?

Without annual maintenance, your backup generator may not be ready when you need it most.

Winter Is Coming. Fall Is the Perfect Time to Schedule Backup Generator Maintenance.

You wouldn’t drive your car for several years without changing the oil, rotating the tires, and performing routine maintenance, right? Well, why not give your generator the same treatment? Just like your car, your backup generator needs its oil changed, battery replaced, and other maintenance items every so often. Click Here for a full list of backup generator maintenance items.
