Like any other engine, a generator will require proper maintenance to ensure its good performance. And, if you’re planning to invest in a new one this season, you should consider getting a maintenance agreement along with it. This way, you’ll have greater peace of mind knowing your generator will remain in tip-top shape all year round.
Here’s what you should expect during a professional generator maintenance service agreement:
1. Thorough inspections: Trained technicians will take a closer look at the unit’s engine oil level, gas delivery system and trickle charger. They may also check the air inlets for debris and signs of leaks or wear and tear. With a full inspection of your unit, they can catch the early warning signs of operational issues and deal with them promptly.
2. Replacing the air filter: It’s all too easy for dirt, dust, and other debris to accumulate in the air filter. To keep it in good working order, the contractor may replace the air filter as necessary.
3. Changing the engine oil: Most generators run on natural gas, and, if you have to use the unit before the scheduled maintenance, technicians may have to change the engine oil. In fact, whether you use the generator often or not, it’s wise to change its oil every few months.
4. Determining if electrical components are intact: Technicians will check for damage or corrosion in your generator’s electrical connection to your home. We’ll also make sure that everything is fitted tightly, and there are no minor issues that can hamper the generator’s performance.
