4 Generator Maintenance Tips For South Florida Homeowners

For optimum performance, our generator maintenance specialists perform all of the following checks and tests on your generator:

  1. Manual Start-Up– All automatic standby generators turn on immediately once they detect a power failure, but they also have a test function. Our professionals will safely run the generator to test for any issues at the start and finish of the tune-up.
  2. Part Replacement (As Needed)- Maintaining your equipment with original equipment manufacturer parts is key to the performance and reliability you count on when the lights go out.
  3. Oil & Filter Checks- The oil in your generator does need to be regularly changed, as do the filters. You should have this done once a year anyway, but really the frequency of your oil changes depends on how long and often it is in operation.
  4. Check the Fuel Lines- Any unused gas just sitting in the generator loses its effectiveness after 6 months. We’ll dispose of it properly.
