How Often Should Generator Maintenance Be Done?

Regular maintenance is crucial to the optimal performance and longevity of your generator. However, many property owners often ask, "How frequently should generator maintenance be done?" The answer largely depends on the usage and the manufacturer's recommendations. 

However, as a general rule of thumb, we recommend the following maintenance schedule:

  • Weekly check-up: Even when not in use, run your generator once a week to keep it warmed up and ready for service.
  • Monthly evaluation: Inspect the generator for any visible issues, check the control panel readings and indicators, and make sure the generator is in 'Auto' mode.
  • Semi-annual professional inspection: Schedule a professional inspection at least twice a year with a certified technician who can conduct a thorough assessment and perform necessary tune-ups.
  • Annual comprehensive maintenance: An annual check should include changing engine oil, inspecting and replacing the air and fuel filters, and thoroughly checking all the generator components.

More frequent maintenance may be required based on local environmental conditions or heavy generator usage. Trust our team at Storm Guardian Generators to take care of your generator maintenance needs, ensuring that it's in peak condition and ready to provide power whenever you need it.
