When to Replace Your Generac Generator
Generators are built to be extremely reliable, kicking on in seconds after the power gets knocked out for any reason. So if yours isn’t working properly, it’s important to know what to do! Signs that it’s time to replace your Generac generator include:
Old age – Generac generators are designed to last upwards of 20 years, but this may be shorter or longer depending on the type of generator you choose. In general, diesel powered generators will have a much longer lifespan than gasoline powered generators. If your generator isn’t as reliable as it used to be and it’s starting to get up there in age, call Kolb Electric for generator replacement in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC.
Increasing need for maintenance – for optimal performance, you should have your Generac generator maintained once a year. But if you’re starting to notice that you need maintenance or repairs more frequently, this may be a sign that it’s time to replace your system—when the costs of system upkeep replace the costs of buying a new system outright, you can save a lot of money going with generator replacement.
