Why Invest in a Home Generator?

Investing in a home generator is a smart decision for several reasons. Having a backup power source can help you avoid numerous inconveniences and potential problems that could arise in the event of a power outage. 

A home backup generator can help you avoid: 

  • Food spoilage: Power outages can cause refrigerated and frozen food to spoil, leading to considerable waste and additional grocery expenses. A backup generator ensures your refrigerator stays running, keeping your food fresh and safe.
  • Disrupted work-from-home operations: Many people now work from home, and losing power can mean losing income for the duration of the outage. A backup generator ensures you have the continuous power you need to keep working.

Do Generators Need Regular Maintenance?

Just like any other machine, generators require regular maintenance to ensure they're ready to function efficiently when needed. Regular inspections can help identify and fix potential issues before they become serious problems. Routine maintenance tasks may include checking and changing oil, replacing filters, testing the battery, and checking for any signs of wear and tear. By keeping up with these actions, you're not only prolonging the lifespan of your generator but also ensuring it runs smoothly during a power outage. 

How Do I Tell if My Generator Isn’t Working?

Recognizing signs of a malfunctioning generator is crucial to ensure it doesn't fail you in an emergency. 

Common symptoms of a broken generator include: 

  • Failure to start or stop: If your generator doesn't start when you need it or fails to stop once power is restored, there could be a problem with the transfer switch or the control board.
  • Unusual noises or vibrations: If your generator makes unusual sounds or vibrates excessively, it may indicate issues with the engine or other components.
  • Excessive fuel consumption: If your generator uses more fuel than usual, it may be a sign of inefficient operation.
  • Leaking fluids: Leaks of fuel, oil, or coolant are clear signs of an issue that needs immediate attention.
  • Warning lights or messages: If your generator's control panel is displaying warning lights or messages, it's indicating a problem that needs to be addressed.
  • Poor power output: If your generator cannot provide the amount of power it's rated for, there likely are issues affecting its performance.

If you notice any of these symptoms, it's crucial to call a professional for a thorough inspection and necessary repairs. Remember, a well-maintained generator is critical to ensuring consistent power supply during an outage.
