As we move deeper into winter, the likelihood of a power outage is going to increase. This is due to a number of things, from inclement weather to increased demand on the grid. No one wants to have to deal with a power outage, especially for an extended period of time. If you have a generator to help cope with potential power outages, make sure that you schedule maintenance for it this winter. Read on to find out why this is a good idea.
Generators can develop problems just as much as any other system. There are a number of different issues that can afflict generators, with the most common effect of each of them being that the system won’t start. That’s obviously quite a problem when you need the system to work in an emergency. Because generators are typically only used once or twice a year, it is highly likely that if yours develops a problem you will not notice it until it’s too late. This is why preventive maintenance is so important.
Since you likely won’t realize that your generator is having an issue until it fails to start in a power outage, the best way to catch issues in time is to schedule preventive generator maintenance. This will allow your technician to find and fix generator issues before they have the chance to impede your system performance. It’s very highly recommended that you have your generator checked out every winter, just in case you happen to need it in the next few months.
