Can an automatic backup generator replace utility service?2018-10-30T04:19:00-04:00

No…the generator fuel costs would be much more expensive than buying power from the utility company since their cost to produce electricity is divided among thousands of customers.

Typically, at least once a year or 100-150 hours of use. Use our convenient maintenance calculator and scheduler to pick the recommended service plan for your unit. Best of all you will be able to schedule when you want the service to be completed.

Does my generator need maintenance even if I don’t use it?2018-10-30T04:34:19-04:00

YES! Over time the oil inside your generator will break down, condensation will build up and the wearable parts will start to become less effective. The installation of a generator is a significant investment, the cost of protecting it is a fraction of this cost.
