Listed below are the most common reasons why you should contact a qualified electrician to service your generator:
Battery Failure – Typically, power generators must be serviced for this reason alone. Batteries can fail from sulfate buildup on the terminals, short circuits, open cells, tripped breakers, a defective charger, or dirty connections.
Faulty Block Heater – A block heater, which runs frequently, often develops a low coolant temperature alarm when it becomes faulty.
Wet Stacking – Providing an engine with too much no-load runtime can cause it to over fuel and be damaged.
Out of Fuel – If the fuel level falls too low, the generators will automatically shut down to avoid the fuel system drawing in the air.
Air in the fuel System – Air can enter the fuel lines and prevent injectors from firing if the generator is not used regularly. By performing weekly inspections, this problem can be avoided.
Controls not set to “Auto” – This is a sign that the power generator was not switched off, which means that it was not being used as the primary control switch. It can be caused by human error, open circuit breakers, improperly reset alarm systems or switchgear, emergencies, and more.
Low Coolant – Internal and external coolant leaks, clogged radiators, and many other factors can cause a generator to run hot and shut down.
When we install a generator, we follow these steps:
Analyzing the Situation
Taking the time to evaluate the situation is the first step. Our team will analyze your current energy needs to determine which generator is best for you. It wouldn’t make sense to choose a generator that is too big for your property, it would be too expensive. Instead, we will work to ensure that the generator is perfect to meet your needs.
Installing the Unit
The second thing we will do is find the best location for your generator. For us, it is important that the generator looks nice and performs well. We will find a place where the generator can be installed safely. Usually, a concrete pad is laid out first, and the generator is then installed over it. This ensures that the generator does not fall over at any time.
Connecting the Transfer Switch and Fuel
Lastly, the fuel needs to be connected and the transfer switch installed. With this switch, users will be able to easily switch between power sources. Using an automatic transfer switch is a wise thing to do. Due to your automatic switch, your generator will automatically start when there is a power outage.
We will test if everything is functioning properly as it should. In addition, we recommend you self-test every week to ensure everything is functioning normally.
Do not let yourself be fooled. You may own a standby generator for your home, business, or both, but it goes deeper than just keeping the lights on and charging your phone. An electric backup generator is capable of running an entire home full of electronics and even the most power-hungry HVAC system. Or keep a business going during a blackout with 100x or even a 1000x electricity requirment of a home.
A few of the benefits include;
