Many generator repairs can be avoided with proper maintenance and upkeep of the unit. If an emergency repair is needed, it will likely be worth the repair. A generator repair may not be worth it if the generator is old and not energy efficient or if the repair cost will outweigh a new and improved generator. Generators have a life expectancy of between 10 and 30 thousand hours when maintained properly. If your generator is less than or within this time frame, a repair is generally worth it. If your generator needs an expensive repair and has more than 30 thousand hours, a replacement may be a better option.
What Are Signs That You May Need Generator Repairs?
You may need a generator repair if you see visible damage to your unit, are experiencing delays or other performance issues, or if you notice abnormalities such as unfamiliar smells or noises coming from the generator. If your generator hasn’t been run in over 6 months, having professional electrical help on standby can help prevent serious damage from complications such as insufficient fuel level, valve problems, and spark plug connections.
