Why You Should Get Your Generator Serviced Before or During the Winter




Why You Should Get Your Generator Serviced Before or During the Winter

Posted on:22 Dec, 2020 / Posted In: Generac

Keeping your generator in good condition is important regardless of the time of year, as you never know when a power outage might hit. Especially for people who rely on electricity to power medical equipment or other critical technologies, prioritizing generator maintenance year-round is a must.

But for most of us, the winter presents an additional risk and worry: not only is the risk of a blackout increased due to downed powerlines as a result of heavy storms, but if the power goes out, you may be left in the cold and the dark – quite literally. At Generator Technologies Inc., we strongly recommend that you get your generator serviced before winter hits, or at least once during the winter if you don’t do it beforehand.

The Importance of Generator Maintenance Pre-Winter/During the Winter

When winter hits, your generator will likely be asked to perform, something that can be complicated by moisture, extremely cold temperatures, and debris that’s built up over the fall. If there’s a power outage and your generator hasn’t been serviced beforehand, there is a chance that your generator won’t kick on or won’t deliver the level of power that you’re expecting. The best way to avoid this situation is to invest in generator maintenance–and generator repairs if necessary–in advance. Generator maintenance can be used to top off fluids, remove debris and clean wires, replace any damaged parts, and run a system test to ensure that everything is working as it should. The last thing that you want to have to worry about is needing your generator in the midst of a very cold, very dark winter only to learn last minute that it’s not working. (If this does happen to you, please call our team immediately. We offer 24/7 emergency generator services.)
