Here are some tips for end-of-summer maintenance for your standby generator. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team directly for help. 

How to Prep Your Generator for Fall

Once the days start to get shorter and cooler, it’s time to start preparing your generator for fall and winter. Here’s what you need to do:

Before and during fall…

  • Check the generator for debris. Clear out any dead grass and leaves.
  • Change the oil and plugs; replace the filters.
  • Make sure you have any supplies that you’ll need for winter, such as a maintenance kit. 

Before winter hits…

  • Turn your generator on to do a test run. Make sure that it’s running smoothly. Listen for any strange sounds and pay attention to any issues.
  • If your generator isn’t hooked directly into a gas line, be sure to fill up the propane tank and have extra propane on hand in case you need it.
  • Perform a full-system maintenance check. Call a professional if you need help.
  • Consider installing a cold-weather kit if you need one. If you’re not sure, talk to a professional.
