For some homeowners, the process was easy and their generators kicked on right away and did the job without a hitch. Some of the others were not as lucky. Is it time for you to replace that old generator?

How Old is Your Generator?

The age and usage of your generator is very important in the repair or replace decision. We judge people by the number of years they have lived, but generators are evaluated more by the amount of hours they are used. The average standby generator can last about 1,000 to 2,000 hours of use if it is maintained properly. If you are only using your generator once or twice per year, you’re going to be happy with how long it will last you!

Is It Having Trouble Starting?

If you have an automatic standby generator, it is designed to turn on whenever your power goes out. If this doesn’t happen, give us a call so we can have one of our licensed professionals take a look. You should never perform repairs without an expert opinion.

Have You Had Multiple Repairs?

Scheduled maintenance should be part of your generator’s routine, but when those maintenance appointments consistently lead to repairs, you have an issue. If you see the repair spending adding up, perhaps it would be wise to invest in a new standby generator.
