Like any other engine, a generator requires regular maintenance if you want it to continue running smoothly. If you never took your car for a service, for instance, you can hardly expect it to keep transporting you day after day. Well, precisely the same rule applies to your generator. A well-oiled and loved machine is going to serve you well into the future. In addition, a regular maintenance service has the effect of identifying any potential issues before they become issues. Ultimately this is good for the machine, your wallet, and your stress levels, as you are much more unlikely to have a breakdown at any inopportune moments.
Generator Supercenter can provide the solution to your problem. We offer a monitoring service called GenMonitor. Using a remote diagnostics tool, the system connects with an online interface and alerts our technicians of any issues that may be arising. GenMonitor is a 24/7 monitoring service and enables a technician to respond quickly to any issue raised. You will also receive routine maintenance of the generator and switch. This means that you get a thorough monitoring service, which negates the risk of a machine breaking down. If there are any problems, a technician will be with you as soon as it arises, so you won’t have the frustrating issue of having to wait several days for a maintenance and service appointment.
How To Choose A Generator Maintenance Program
Frequency of Use
If you use your generators fairly often due to bad weather, etc., and tend to use them for long periods of time, you will need more regular maintenance. It could be as often as quarterly. However, if you only use it a few times a year, then annually should suffice.
Types of Use
Generator use generally falls under two categories: home or business. If you require the generator for home use, it is merely for your comfort should the power go out. However, you may need local or national codes applied to your generators for business purposes. If your business needs to follow specific regulations, you will have to purchase a more comprehensive service agreement. It is also in your best interests to have additional services included in your plan, such as fuel testing and load banking. This is because many facilities are subject to NFPA 110 guidelines covering all electrical power within a building should there be a power cut. In addition, generators for hospitals or data infrastructure, for example, will most likely have higher liability should the power go out. All this means that you need more regular maintenance, which will help you uphold your reputation and prevent any liability claim.
