When Should I Replace My Generator? 




When Should I Replace My Generator? 

Posted on:16 Aug, 2021 / Posted In: Generac

A standby generator for a home or business provides a source of reliable, immediate power in the event of a blackout. At Generator Technologies Inc., we have helped countless home and business owners select the generators that they need, and have managed installation, maintenance, and repairs over the years. One of the most frequently asked questions that we hear from our customers is how long a generator might last and when it’s time to replace a generator. If you’re wondering when it’s time to replace your generator, here are some things to look for that may indicate that it’s time for a new machine—

You Need More Power

One reason to replace your generator may simply be because you need more power; your current generator doesn’t have the capacity to meet your power needs. This may be especially true if your home or business has recently upgraded to new equipment or appliances, or if you’ve experienced a personal change that increases your energy demands. If your current generator can’t handle the load of your home or business, talk to a professional about upgrading to a generator that can. 

Your Old Generator Is Too Polluting

Another reason to replace your generator may be that your current generator is too polluting. Not only are older generators more hazardous when it comes to the level of emissions they put out, but also the amount of noise pollution. If you’re trying to go green (or need to go green based on EPA regulations), upgrading your generator to a quieter, more efficient model may be strongly recommended. 

You Want to Upgrade Your Tech

Today’s generators feature many modern technologies, including the ability for remote monitoring and control. If your old generator doesn’t allow for quick communication on its status or remote monitoring and control, upgrading can be helpful. Talk to our pros at Generator Technologies Inc. to learn more about remote monitoring and whether this is something that you could benefit from. 

Repair Costs Don’t Make Sense

One of the most practical reasons to replace your generator is simply that your generator is getting old and is experiencing one breakdown after another, leading to high repair costs. If you’ve already spent money on repairs or a repair is necessary that is expensive, it’s time to consider whether it’s more economical to buy a new generator now or keep paying for repairs on the old, only to have to eventually replace it anyway.
