If you’re a smart homeowner, you have already decided to install a generator or have it installed already. A generator is an essential part of your home, and it’s one of those things you later regret not installing sooner.
What happens to your electrical power in a sudden power outage? Or when a storm or weather disturbance hits?
A generator helps you stay prepared and with power in unexpected situations. However, a generator installation isn’t all there is to owning this backup power machine. To ensure it works smoothly when you need it, you have to repair and maintain the generator when needed. Complete generator services from a professional electrician will include generator installation, repair, and maintenance.
Wondering why this too is necessary?
Importance of generator maintenance
A generator works hard when in use and even when it’s not in use for a long time, you can’t just assume it’s in good shape. Generator maintenance services are important to always check that your generator is functioning properly.
Generator maintenance or service makes it easy to spot problems before they become worse or show up when you need the generator the most.
Maintenance can also help you prevent carbon monoxide poisoning by making sure the generator is properly positioned for use. A well-maintained generator is more efficient, saves you money in the long run, and lasts longer.
Importance of generator repair
If you fail to maintain your generator as needed, faults can occur and linger. You may start to notice signs that mean your generator needs a repair service. These include obvious damage such as cracks, dents, loose parts, burnt out wires, and so on. The damages could be caused by use, handling, wind, rain, or sun.
You may also notice fuel leaks, low voltage, difficulty coming on, and more.
It’s important to call your electrician for generator repairs as soon as possible. A timely repair will eliminate further problems, safety hazards, and save you from the lack of a backup power supply.
