The only thing worse than losing power is losing power without a working generator. You want the generator on your property to be reliable in the case of an emergency. That’s why you installed it. If you have a Generac automatic home backup generator, the likelihood that everything will be in working order goes up dramatically, but it is always best to be sure. Sometimes exterior forces or poor installation will cause a generator to fail. If this is the case, it is much better to know before you lose power.
Generac is a leading energy technology company, producing top-of-the-line backup generators for both residential and commercial properties. They are committed to clean energy products that are sustainable, and their goal is to revolutionize the 21st century electrical grid. To meet this goal, Generac offers a selection of home backup generators that run on natural gas, liquid propane, solar energy, or battery-power.
Because Generac offers so many different models of generators, running on many different kinds of fuel, it is critical for our Ferree electricians to participate in Generac’s comprehensive service training. We have the necessary training to work with each of these Generac automatic home backup generators to repair them as you need.
Common Necessary Generator Repairs
Generators that are several years old may experience problems that require maintenance, including but not limited to dry or cracking belts, burnt coils, overheating, dead batteries, engine failure, weather damage, and general wear and tear. These problems can lead to leaking gas, rapidly dying generator batteries (though that is generally not a problem if your Generac automatic home backup generator is permanent), and ultimately the failure of your generator to start.
Regular maintenance such as checking the fuel and fuel line, changing the oil, and replacing the air filter can go a long way toward preserving the longevity of your backup generator. Do not perform any maintenance yourself before consulting your unit’s Generac owners manual. For these and especially other more extensive repairs (replacing spark plugs, tightening bolts, optimizing motor mounts, etc.), contact us at Ferree Electric. Our team members are electricians you can trust to ensure the smooth operation of your generator.
Your Generator’s Warranty
In addition to a range of standby generators, Generac also offers a variety of warranty options to make sure you find the best one for you. Before you consider doing any repairs on your generator yourself, be sure that doing so will not void its warranty. Check your Generac owners manual for more information about the warranty of your generator.
Emergency Generator Repair for You
To lose power is a scary thing, especially if you expect your generator to kick on in an emergency but it doesn’t. If you find yourself in this situation, our 24-hour repair service can ensure you are not left without power. Keep in mind, however, that the greatest demand for generator repair services is during a power outage at the grid. If you don’t want to be in the queue of those waiting for a generator repair, we recommend getting your generator inspected before you experience a power failure.
If your generator is several years old, or if you know something happened that might have damaged your unit, schedule a full inspection. One of our electricians can examine the unit thoroughly and make any necessary repairs as quickly as possible. By getting an inspection, you can have the assurance a Generac automatic home backup generator is meant to provide. Contact a member of our Ferree Electric team to repair your generator before you experience a critical loss of power.
