Are you prepared to handle a power outage?
Preventive maintenance and service are typically done on a schedule based upon engine hours and/or time periods. The maintenance cycle can—and should—be adapted to meet specific application needs.
One way to ensure a long, reliable operating life is to implement a preventive maintenance (PM) program.
The average life expectancy of a well-maintained service vehicle is approximately 5,000 hours (assuming 300,000 miles at 60 mph). However, a typical standby generator set can last from 10,000 to 30,000 hours. On the other hand, a standby generator might operate as little as 26 hours a year (based on only 30 minutes of weekly exercise and no outages). Alternatively, it might operate as much as several hundred hours a year. This will depend upon the number and duration of power outages. In either case, a standby generator set could conceivably last 20 to 30 years. One way to ensure a long, reliable operating life is to implement a preventive maintenance (PM) program.
What plays into how often I should check my generator?
The more hours per year a unit operates, the more frequently it will require service. Environment also plays a role. The more severe the environment (dusty, hot or cold, humid, etc.), the more frequent the need for service may be.
At a minimum, a good visual inspection should be done on a monthly basis, as well as after any extended generator run times.
