Why is Generator Maintenance Important?

A generator is not a buy, and forget it until you need it. Instead, it requires annual maintenance, just like the other systems in your home, to ensure that it's ready to successfully fire up whenever you need it. There are many benefits to having it done when it comes to generator maintenance.

Generac Maintenance

Lengthens Lifespan

Regular maintenance helps keep all the generator's internal parts in good working order. This translates to a longer lifespan for the entire unit. Lack of maintenance can allow parts to deteriorate and drastically reduce the lifespan of your generator.

Keeps Your Warranty Active

When you purchase one of the many Generac generator units, it comes with a warranty. This includes Honeywell, Siemens, Guardian, Eaton, and Quiet Source units. To keep your warranty active, you'll need to have a professional perform annual maintenance on your generator. Proof of yearly maintenance is an absolute necessity to get warranty work covered.

Reduces Risk of Malfunction

When the power goes out, you need your generator to kick on and power your home. When you get preventative maintenance performed regularly on your generator, it helps to drastically reduce your risk of experiencing malfunctions. During a power outage, the last thing you want to deal with is your generator malfunctioning.

Save Money in the Long Run

Routine generator maintenance helps keep your generator working in tip-top condition and reduces your need for repairs. Spending a small amount of money on maintenance is worth having a generator that lasts well beyond its estimated lifespan. The less maintenance you have on your generator, the shorter its lifespan will be, and the more often you'll have to replace it.
