Preventative Maintenance Program
Our preventative maintenance program is done by Wisconsin's #1 rated team of factory-certified Generac technicians in compliance with Generac's maintenance standards.
We offer Monthly, Quarterly, Semi-Annual, and Annual Operations Inspections.
- General physical condition to include complete housing, mechanical & electrical systems.
- Cooling system to include pumps, pulleys, belts, hoses, radiator, jacket water heater, and coolant medium.
- Lubrication system to include hoses, oil lines, oil level, and oil sample. Lube oil filter(s) are cut open to inspect for debris.
- Air system to include piping and housing(s) restrictions, filter condition.
- Fuel system to include fuel lines, fuel tank integrity, filter condition fuel transfer system, governor and control linkage. Fuel filters are cut open to inspect for algae.
- Exhaust system to include silencer and piping, and exhaust manifold.
- Generator to include coupling and guards, exciter system and exciter air gap, main bearing condition/signs of overheating, and wiring.
- Starting system to include starter, batteries, battery cables, and alternator. Battery static and starting (cranking) voltages are recorded. Battery electrolyte level checked.
- Control Panel/Assembly to include start control and safety controls, remote annunciator and alarms, panel meters and switches.
- Main Breaker and Power Cables to include condition and connections.
- Transfer Switch to include Visual inspection, and operational checks.
Along with our PM program we also offer load bank services. This allows to for us to check operation of the generator with out using the home or building to test the load carrying capability of the system. This will allow us to ensure your generator is always ready when it is needed.
Why is a load bank test important?
Load testing your emergency standby generator system should be part of a standard planned maintenance program for all systems. The main reason to test your system under load is to make sure the generator will perform as designed, when it is needed most. This is the only true way to check the performance of the generator. A load test will allow verification that the generator system will produce and maintain full load without overheating and shutting down. It also allows testing of all components of the system, to ensure all work together as designed and intended and can help identify any potential weaknesses in controlled conditions. This allows proactive maintenance, as weaknesses are identified during controlled conditions, not during a utility outage when a weakness can cause the system to fail.
