You have a whole home generator for a reason: to keep your home safe, secure and operational during a power outage. For some, keeping the power on is critical for medical reasons. But you may not have the power you need if your generator hasn’t been professionally maintained, and that isn’t good for you or your home. The electrical experts at D’Spain Sales & Service, Inc., are here to help with all of your electrical needs, including generator maintenance. If it’s been more than 12 months since your generator in Fredericksburg has been properly maintained, then it’s time to give us a call.
Running Your Generator Is Good, But Not Enough
It’s recommended that as a generator owner, you allow your generator to run for about 20 minutes every month to make sure it is operating. However, this monthly warm-up isn’t nearly enough to ensure your system will function when you need it, and it doesn’t maintain the components in your generator at all. A maintenance appointment with our electrical experts is a thorough, in-depth appointment that is equal to a tune-up for your system. What happens during a generator maintenance appointment? Here’s an overview:
- Thorough inspection to find any problems
- Cleaning of debris
- Cleaning of components
- Lubrication of all parts
- Change spark plugs
- Change oil
- Change all filters, including the air filter
- Check connections
- Test the unit
