Let Us Help You Keep Your Generator Maintained for Peace of Mind
Once your new
Automatic Standby Generator
is installed, you will have peace of mind that you will never be inconvenienced by a power outage again. In order to ensure safe and reliable operation, general maintenance will need to be performed. After 6 months or 8 hours of use, the first scheduled maintenance should be completed. This is the most important one. We go over the entire mechanical and electrical portion of the generator to make sure everything during the break in period is working the way it should. We change the oil and oil filter, check and gap the spark plugs, check all functions of the generator, and test to ensure it works properly.
