As winter approaches and severe weather becomes more likely, your on-demand Generac generator is an essential tool that helps keep your Princeton, NJ area home safe, warm and comfortable during a power outage. Because Generac generators work seamlessly to provide back-up energy, many homeowners don’t even realize they’ve lost power! As a result, it’s easy to let annual maintenance slip by.
Finding out your Generac generator needs service during a storm is the last thing you want, so it’s important to have it serviced regularly by the pros at Princeton Air.
Benefits of Generator Maintenance
Regular maintenance is the single best thing you can do to ensure your Generac Generator is there to provide backup power for your family when disaster strikes. In fact, one of the biggest reasons for generator failure is poor or infrequent maintenance.
Keeping your Generac system in top shape will extend your generator’s functional lifespan and avoid little issues that can turn into expensive problems.
What’s Included in an Annual Maintenance Check-up?
Your generator is a sophisticated engine that produces electricity when it senses an interruption in the power from your utility. In order to function as it should, regular maintenance check-ups by a service technician will inspect the systems inside your on-demand generator and make sure that everything is primed for reliable operation all year long.
As certified Generac service pros, the technicians at Princeton Air will conduct a thorough inspection, including:
Electrical inspection—We check for loose wires and connections inside the generator and between the generator and your home’s central panel.
Fuel lines & fuel supply — Your technician will check for air or water in the fuel lines as well as any leaks. We’ll also check the natural gas regulator to ensure all the fittings are functioning properly.
Coolant levels — Just your your car engine, a generator needs coolant to keep from overheating during operation. We’ll check the coolant and top it off for the season.
Water Contamination — Your generator is located out in the elements, so it’s not uncommon for rainwater or other moisture get into the housing or fuel lines and cause poor performance.
Electronics Testing— Your Generac Generator has some pretty sophisticated electronic controls and switchgears that make the transition between utility and generator seamless and safe. Your Princeton Air technician will run diagnostics to ensure all is functioning perfectly.
