Having a Backup Generator for the Winter

Generac Generator

There are many benefits that come with having a backup generator, especially during the winter season. If a bad storm were to occur and you were to lose electricity the backup generator would quickly and automatically supply power keeping your heating system running. You would not have to worry about losing power, which would cause all heating and electric appliances to stop working. You would have the peace of mind that your family and home are protected and that if a power outage was to occur you also wouldn’t suffer any financial losses, like food spoilage or if working from home, any lost work time. 

Tips to Protect Your Standby Generator 

There is maintenance required for standby generators which typically must be done once a year or after 200 hours of use. You want to keep the owner’s manual on hand so you can know exactly how to perform the maintenance, which may include an oil change, air filter change, spark plug change, and valve adjustment. You want to also make sure the generator is placed on a level surface a couple of inches above the ground in case a flood were to occur, the generator can remain dry. If proper maintenance and care is done your generator can last between 20 to 40 years, giving you peace of mind for a long time.
