Your standby generator engine is very similar to a car’s engine. And, just like your car, it needs regular maintenance such as oil and filter changes to run efficiently every time it starts up. Regularly scheduled maintenance can help ensure your backup power supply is ready and willing to kick in when you need it most.
As with all mechanical systems, poorly maintained standby generators are more prone to failure, which is why manufacturers require proper maintenance as a condition of the warranty. The Generator Maintenance Plan includes one maintenance per contract year. It does not include repairs.
