5 Problems Generator Maintenence Helps Prevent

Monday, September 13th, 2021

Generators, especially whole-house generators, are a great system to have around as a backup when the power goes out for your home. This can happen for any number of reasons–bad storms or unfortunate landings by birds or squirrels. The thing that matters is that, when that source of electricity drops out, you will need access to power in the interim until the regular flow is restored. And generators do that.

While generators aren’t going to be in use on a regular basis, it doesn’t mean that they don’t need regular care.  Much like your air conditioner or heater, your generator is going to need professional maintenance to keep it in working order. After all, you don’t want the power to go out only to discover that your backup system isn’t running properly! Save yourself the trouble by scheduling generator maintenance in New City, NY with a professional.

Why Generator Maintenance Is Vital

Monday, July 5th, 2021

It sits outside your house quietly and out of use for the majority of the time. But, much like an alarm system or your smoke detector, your whole-house generator is there to hop into action when the time comes. For your smoke detector, that moment comes when you need to be alerted to a fire risk. For your generator, the time comes when there is an interruption in the flow of power to your home.

Your whole-house generator sits on standby until you need it (hence why these are also known as stand generators). The idea is that should there be a loss of power to your home, your generator is going to be able to jump in to keep things in the house running without interruption. But you can’t guarantee this will be the case without generator maintenance in Pomona NY.

Monday, November 26th, 2018

We can’t imagine anything as frustrating as installing a generator just for the purpose of running it through a disaster and then having it fail to start on the day of said disaster.

generator-servicing-sessionHere on the East Coast, inclement weather can come any time of year, whether it’s a blizzard in the winter or a deluge of rain in the summer.

It’s Hurricane Season: Don’t Forget to Schedule Your Generator for Maintenance

Monday, September 7th, 2015

No one likes to think about the possibility of our area being smacked with a big, tropical storm, but as residents of New City, NY, we know that we can be in the path of some nasty weather. There’s already been quite a lot of activity, and if you are homeowner who needs to keep the power going no matter what, it’s time to make sure that your whole home generator will be ready to go in case you need it.

Why Is Maintenance Important?

One of the biggest reasons maintenance is so important is that hopefully your generator has been doing a lot of sitting. While this is good news for you, sitting causes fuels and oils to settle and/or break down, and allows dirt and dust to accumulate on components. Should the power go out, and your generator hasn’t been maintained, you run the risk of it not operating well or at all when you need it most.
