Prepare Your Generator for Spring and Summer Outages

Spring is in the air! That means warmer weather, sunshine, spring cleaning, and of course possible damaging storms. Taking the time to perform regular generator maintenance can avoid outages and help ensure that your generator is ready when you need it most, whether you do it yourself or leave it to a professional.

After all, with the unpredictable weather that can come with living in New England, ensuring that your generator is in peak condition is crucial for keeping your home or business powered up!

Follow these tips to avoid outages and ensure your generator is ready for any emergency situation:

  1. Clear the area around your generator. This will help prevent debris from building up and blocking critical airflow.
  2. Check and change your fluids. Every generator has a specific hour interval for both the first oil change and maintenance oil changes. If your fluids are not at the correct levels, this could cause catastrophic damage to your engine. Contact us at 1-800-972-4264 to learn more about your specific unit’s requirements.
  3. Exercise your generator. By starting your generator on a regular basis, you will help prolong the life of your battery, ensuring it is in good working condition, and ready for an outage. When scheduling your preventative maintenance, ask to set up the exercise to run weekly or bi-weekly. Make sure to choose a time when you’ll be home to confirm that the operation is successful.
