Importance of Gas Generators and How to Maintain Them

The weather is starting to get ugly and with hurricanes and harsh storms approaching, it’s very important to prepare for the season. Many of these ugly storms may cause you to lose power in your household. That is why it is important to have a Generac Generator!  If you want to make sure that you will always have power in your home, then installing a generator is a must!

Having a generator can also help you save a lot of money and save you from major power outages!  Basically, a standby generator connects with a home’s electrical system through a transfer switch. When the power eventually goes out, the transfer switch disconnects the home from the grid and activates the generator. After a few seconds, the home’s electrical system should turn back on.

It’s also important to perform the proper maintenance on the generators so that they are all set to go for the winter time.  Ensuring reliable generator function through the winter requires routine maintenance. It’s also very important because in the winter the temperature can get to extremely low levels.  Here are a few ways you can maintain your generator to make sure it’s ready to go for the cold weather:

  • Perform Fuel Maintenance
  • Inspect the Spark Plug
  • Check the engine’s electrical system
  • Change the Engine Coolant
  • Inspect and Change Filters
  • Load Bank testing (which basically allows the generator to run in a simulated outage situation)
