Generators are considerable investments for most homeowners. Even though they are typically used infrequently, when they are needed, they are invaluable. Properly maintained residential generators can be expected to last nearly 20 years when they are mainly used in emergency situations, such as in the event of a power outage, or to occasionally power a garage or shed that is not equipped with a traditional power source. It is important to note that most generators are not intended for constant use, and if they are overworked and not maintained properly, the life expectancy is significantly reduced.
When you purchase a Generac, Briggs & Stratton, GE, or Kohler generator from American Generators Sales & Service, you can trust that we will ensure that you purchase the proper generator to suit your unique needs. Generators, like your other major household appliances, require regular service to ensure reliability and longevity. At American Generators Sales & Service, our technicians are committed to providing each customer with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Some of our customers are surprised to learn that residential generators require annual maintenance, even though it’s possible that they went a year without running. Additives in the oil will break down over time and for this reason, it is crucial to have the oil changed on an annual basis to ensure proper lubrication inside the generator.
When compared to the cost of a new generator, an annual tune-up is a nominal fee. Nothing is worse than pulling a generator out from the garage because the power has gone out only to discover that the machine won’t start, or is running inefficiently. Remember, generators are purchased by residents as emergency solutions when traditional power sources fail. Don’t let your emergency backup let you down, ensure proper maintenance so you can enjoy the benefits that your generator can provide for nearly 20 years. Contact us today to learn more!
