If you cannot trust that your whole-house backup generator will turn on when you actually need it, then what good is it? Not much! The best way to know that your generator is dependable and ready to go to work whenever your home should suffer from an extended power outage is to arrange for professionals to provide it with annual maintenance. The peace of mind you’ll enjoy as a result is well worth the investment.
Wm. Henderson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. offers routine maintenance service for any generator that we initially installed. If you have a generator that was installed by another contractor, we will also take care of its maintenance needs if it is a Honeywell or Generac model. (These are two of the most popular and dependable brands of backup generators.) Give us a call today to arrange for regular generator service.

WHY SCHEDULE MAINTENANCE FOR YOUR GENERATOR?
You might wonder why routine maintenance is even necessary when generators do not run as often as other appliances. (In fact, you hope you don’t have to run your generator at all!) The reason is that even without suffering from mechanical stress due to operation, a generator can still develop faults as it sits unused during the year. The battery can lose its ability to hold its charge. The fuel supply can turn stale. Components can begin to corrode or loosen. It takes routine maintenance inspections and tune-ups to prevent these problems from making a generator unreliable. As we mentioned above, an unreliable generator isn’t much good to you: as an emergency device, it needs to be prepared to swing into action at a moment’s notice. Regular maintenance will see that it is.
WHY PROFESSIONAL GENERATOR MAINTENANCE IS NECESSARY
But can’t you take care of maintaining a backup generator on your own? No, you can’t, and for many of the same reasons, you shouldn’t attempt to repair a generator yourself. These are complex devices that can present major safety hazards if they receive amateur tampering (especially natural gas-powered models). Only a professional can keep a generator safe while performing an inspection and tune-up. And only a professional will know all the checks to make and all the signs to look for when performing annual maintenance. Considering how important the generator is for protecting the health and comfort of your family, you simply cannot allow anyone except experienced technicians to handle its maintenance service.
