A standby commercial generator keeps your power on and your business open during an outage. It’s installed outside your business (like an AC unit) and comes on automatically — whether you’re open or closed. All within seconds of a power outage.
Improper or poorly maintained generator sets are more prone to failure and are more likely to fail when needed most. The most common engine failures can be attributed to the starting, cooling, lubrication or fuel delivery systems. These types of failures can be minimized or prevented by implementing regularly scheduled, comprehensive, generator maintenance and testing programs.
Implementing a regular maintenance program is important in ensuring that your emergency generator works when you need it.
Much like a car, a standby generator is powered by an internal combustion engine and requires maintenance. Regular oil, air filter and spark plug changes are an important part of maintaining a generator. But similar to a car, it is also important to periodically check and maintain other integral components of the system to ensure longevity, safety and manufacturer warranty compliance.
Your Rush Power service technician will perform periodic internal visual inspections while performing maintenance on your generator. Routine maintenance will be performed as well as manufacturer-required service and testing on all generator and automatic transfer switch components.
