When should my Generac generator be serviced?
Every generator maintenance schedule should be at a minimum once a year, and you should change the oil and oil filter. Check and replace if necessary the air filter. This should be regular maintenance so you can prevent your unit from not running in the event you need it. A automatic home backup generator is like any other machine and should be maintained as such. We also offer maintenance kits for the DIY person.
How long can my Generac generator run?
Your Generac generator is designed to run non stop, but we advise you should shut it down every 24 hrs to at least check the engine oil in the unit as preventative maintenance during the outage you are in. No matter if it is hours until power is restored from the grid, your back-up home generator will keep the lights on and your home secure. During a power outage people tend to get nervous, but have faith in your standby generator. This is what they were built to do.
How long will my Generac battery last?
Typically the battery in your standby generator will have a life span of 3 years, now this does depend on cold weather as well. Cold is the killer of all battery items and anyone that lives in cold area’s of the country will tell you this. Some newer units from Generac will have a mobile link where you can have remote monitoring for this as well. This option is on select generator units.
You will be able to also detect this without mobile view from the weekly exercise schedule and if it turns over slow, that might be a sign to change it out.
No matter if you are needing warranty repairs, or a scheduled maintenance. Let our licensed technician come out and get you taken care of before you need the unit again. Our technicians on staff can handle your annual service every year with a reminder from us when you are due. We offer a complete standby generator service as well as installation as well. Avoid costly emergency repairs, and schedule our experienced service technicians to get you taken care of today. Contact Us !
