The importance of regularly servicing your generator for best performance

Generator Safety Tips

If you rely on a generator for backup power during an emergency, it’s important to keep it in good working order by having it serviced on a regular basis. Keeping your generator in optimal operating condition should involve regular inspections and maintenance of the generator, as well as of the fuel system and air filters.

If your generator isn’t serviced on a regular basis, it may not work properly when you need it most. In addition, servicing your generator regularly can help to extend its life and ensure that it runs safely and reliably. Additionally, a poorly maintained generator can end up being a fire hazard and so the importance of regular servicing to help minimise this risk can’t be overemphasised.

It’s generally recommended that you have your generator serviced at least once a year by a qualified technician. If you use your generator frequently or it’s located in a dusty area, you may need to service it more often.

When having your generator serviced, be sure to ask the technician to check the following:

  • Oil level and quality
  • Fuel system
  • Air filter
  • Spark plugs
  • Battery
  • Cooling system
  • Electrical system
  • Generator frame and mounts

If any of these components are not functioning properly, it can affect the performance of your generator and cause it to break down. By servicing your generator regularly, you can help to ensure that it’s always in good working order and ready to provide backup power when you need it most.

For the best performance from your generator and of course your peace of mind, be sure to maintain it properly.
