Standby Generator Maintenance

Lifetime Heating (20) reviews


(Inclusive of all taxes)

If you own or are thinking about owning a Generac automatic standby generator, it’s important to understand that, just like a car or any piece of combustion machinery, automatic standby generator maintenance is required annually. When the indicator light on the side panel of the generator turns yellow, that is your friendly reminder it is time for maintenance!

All too often, backup generators are installed by electricians or individuals who don't specialize specifically in automatic standby generator service, mainenance or warranty repair. If these generators are not set on a weekly test cycle or do not receive annual maintenance, they will have their lifespan shortened significantly. Automatic standby generators should last 20 years when properly maintained. 

Other items that should be inspected & maintained include:

- Battery charger

- Coolant system (if applicable)

- Alternator (often overlooked)

- Engine valves

- Transfer switch
