Manhattan, KS Generator Maintenance by M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc.

Generators can be pretty tricky when it comes to keeping them in top operating condition. They’re emergency devices, which means that you won’t be using them regularly and that you absolutely need them to work correctly when you do use them. Unfortunately, this could mean that any problems with their performance may only reveal themselves in the middle of an emergency situation. That’s not a good situation for anyone to be in, which is why we offer generator maintenance as part of our comprehensive generator services. If you haven’t scheduled preventive maintenance for your generator in a while, be sure to call M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc..

M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. offers generator maintenance in Manhattan, KS and the surrounding areas.

When to Schedule Generator Maintenance

You’ll want to schedule generator maintenance at least once a year, usually after the storm season. If you actually used your generator during the year, you might want to have it checked more frequently. As mentioned above, generator problems are not the kind of thing that you’re likely to notice without actually turning on the generator. Even then, you will have to know what you’re looking for in order to identify anything short of a complete breakdown.

That’s why it’s so important that you let a professional generator technician take a look at your system on a semi–regular basis. He or she will be able to more closely examine your generator, identify potential problems before they start, and neutralize them before they have the chance to affect your generator. Even if a serious problem has already occurred in your generator system, it is far better to find out about it during a maintenance appointment than in the middle of a storm or a blackout.

Causes of Generator Problems

A lot of the issues that can affect your generator stem from lack of use. Whether your generator is sitting out in the elements or in a corner of your garage, being ignored for most of the year will result in parts of it degrading. If your generator uses gasoline or propane, you need to make sure that it is frequently swapped out with new fuel. Those two fuel types can actually go stale over time, which can cause your generator to fail to start even if it’s full.

It’s also a good idea to have the cord running from the generator to your power grid checked. No matter how heavy duty a cord you use, there’s always a chance that something could fall on it or run over it or even chew on it. A cord that’s damaged can cause all sorts of problems when you try to use the generator, not to mention being a fire risk.

Don’t go to all the trouble of buying and installing a generator, only to have it fail you when you need it the most. Let us make sure that when you really need your generator, it doesn’t let you down. M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. offers generator maintenance services.
