It’s important to perform regular maintenance on your home’s generator to make sure that it is performing its best when you need it the most. Regular upkeep will save you money in the long run by avoiding having to buy new parts or even an entire new generator system. The frequency of your maintenance depends on the amount your generator is used. Naturally, the more often it’s used, the more it needs to be maintained. Yearly maintenance is highly recommended because there is much to be done.
Benefits of Maintenance
Prevents expensive and inconvenient breakdowns. Don’t be left out in the dark. Maintenance checks make sure that all components are in good shape. Typically generators are maintained in the spring and fall, so if anything is wrong, there’s plenty of time to repair it before a cold, long winter.
Increases the lifespan of your generator. Would you go years without getting an oil change for your car or rotating the tires? No – the car would break and cost you thousands to repair. Translate that to taking care of your generator.

What You Can Do
Never try to perform generator maintenance on your own without proper training. Not only is this dangerous, but it can also void your warranty. Here are a few things you can do it help:
Keep the area clean around the generator. Generator repairs can often be avoided if the owner makes sure to keep dust, leaves, and snow away as much as possible.
Call and scheduled an appointment with a certified technician. Be proactive and prevent a problem before it occurs. Your family and your wallet will thank you.
