Five Reasons to Install a Standby Generator

Standby generators are a tremendous investment for nearly every homeowner. The fact that they can help you avoid the pitfalls of an extended power outage is just one of the many perks that they can offer. Here are five popular reasons why people choose to install a standby generator for their home.

  • Appliance power: An extended outage can bring your much-needed appliances offline. Keeping your refrigerator and freezer running protects your food supply, and your other kitchen appliances allow you to properly cook it without interruption.
  • Lighting: Nobody likes constantly walking around with a flashlight. Keep your hands free by powering your home’s lighting with a standby generator.
  • Climate control: A large enough standby generator can power everything in your home, and that includes your air conditioner or heater. Don’t suffer through a sweltering home just because the power went out.
  • Medical equipment: Do you depend on an important piece of equipment that is powered by electricity? A standby generator ensures it always has the power it needs to operate.
  • Preparedness: Nobody knows what will happen next. Will a massive storm take the grid offline? Will overuse result in a power surge? Will a blown transformer take down the power in your neighborhood? A standby generator is ready to handle all of these situations and more.

How Often Should a Generator Be Serviced?

Regular generator service extends the generator's longevity and improves efficiency during power outages. The servicing frequency for your generator largely depends on its type and how often you use it. Generally, experts recommend servicing standby generators annually or after every 200 hours of operation. 

Generator services typically follow a comprehensive process to ensure efficient and reliable operation of power backup systems. 

These services usually include:

  • Oil and filter changes. This involves replacing old oil and filters to ensure smooth engine operation and prevent wear.
  • Fuel system inspection. A thorough examination of the fuel system to detect leaks, blockages, or irregularities.
  • Spark plug replacement. Changing spark plugs helps maintain a generator's start-up efficiency.
  • Battery testing. Evaluation of the battery's charge capacity is necessary for generator reliability during outages.
  • Load bank testing. This test puts the generator under full load to determine its output and health.
  • General system checkup. A comprehensive inspection of the entire system to ensure all components function correctly.
