How to Take Care of an Automatic Generator

Automatic generators can definitely make life easy.  Power outage?  No problem- your refrigerator will remain running and you can even continue watching Netflix.  After metro Detroit was hit by a windstorm that caused a major power outage this year, many people decided to take the plunge and invest in a generator.  Though an automatic generator will work for you when you need it, do be aware that routine maintenance is required.

What do you have to do to take care of your generator?

Thankfully, you don’t have to do too much when the generator is not in use.  The main thing to remember to do is change the oil and the filter annually.  Flame offers a generator maintenance plan that includes the oil and filter change, as well as an annual inspection and reduced prices on batteries.

What about when I’m using the generator?

While the automatic generator is being used during a power outage, you must change the generator’s oil every two days or 50 hours.

Summer is coming to Michigan, and that means thunderstorms, which can lead to more power outages.  Don’t forget to take care of your automatic generator to make sure it is ready to go.  If you have any questions, or if you would like to learn more about automatic generators, do not hesitate to contact Flame!
