Having a generator is a great way in which to put your mind at ease. Even when the power goes out for a substantial amount of time, a good whole-house generator will be able to keep your home up and running until the utility straightens the problem out. Of course, the only way in which you can truly rely on your generator to be there for you when you need it most is to keep it in exceptional working condition. This is something that the pros here on our staff are happy to help you out with. Be sure to schedule your routine generator maintenance in Needham Heights, MA with one of our fine technicians.
What Maintenance Does My Generator Need?
You may think that your generator, because it is not up and running every day like your HVAC system is, does not require much in the way of maintenance services. This could not be further from the truth. Your generator should be inspected on an annual basis to ensure that it is functioning properly, and that all of its components are in great shape. Even if this is the case, though, there are a couple of items that must be addressed. Your generator will need a new air filter, and an oil change.
Your generator lives outdoors, and that provides ample opportunity for pollutants to build up in the system, even when it is not used very regularly. By cleaning out your air box and locking a new air filter securely into place, we’ll ensure that your generator’s condition and operation won’t be impeded by a clogged filter or pollutants within the system.
We will also run your generator for a few minutes in order to get everything warmed up, and then drain and completely replace the oil in the system. We’ll also check the oil filter for you. Once these basic maintenance services are complete, along with the other, more complex electrical checks and inspection points, you’ll be able to rest assured in knowing that your generator is ready for action.
