How Long Can Generac Generators Run?

How Long Can Generac Generators Run?

Whole house Generac generators can run 24 hours a day for over a week when connected to a gas line. To safely run a generator for an extended time, you must schedule professional maintenance every six months and check the generator at least every 24 hours it is consecutively running to ensure there are no problems. Gasoline-powered generators run for 8-12 hours on average and up to 24 hours before needing to be refueled. Leaving gas-powered generators on until they run out of fuel is not recommended and could cause permanent damage to the generator.  It is imperative to not refill the generator immediately after long usage because it needs time to cool down before refueling. 

How Often Should Generac Generators Be Serviced?

Generac Generators should be serviced at least once a year. Generator servicing includes oil and filter changes, air filter and spark plug change, battery testing, oil leak inspection, firmware updates, fuel supply testing, transfer switch inspection, valve adjustments, testing output voltage & hertz, starting and cleaning the generator. Regular generator maintenance helps prevent damages and the need for repairs, increasing the longevity of your unit overall.
