Generator Repair

In the event that you already have a generator installed on your property, but it is not functioning properly, our team is ready to assist you. The longer you have a malfunctioning generator, the more risk there is of not having electricity in case of a power outage. Our qualified technicians can examine the problem with your generator and determine the best course of action. Before any work is performed, we shall provide you with a detailed explanation of the generator repair job and the price.

Below are the most common reasons you may need to call an electrician to service your generator:

  1. Battery failure – Generally, we have to service power generators for this reason alone. Battery failure may result from sulfate buildup on the terminals, shorts, open cells, tripped breakers, a defective charger, or loose or dirty connections.
  2. Low coolant – The internal and external coolant leaks, clogged radiators, and more can cause a generator to run hot and shut down.
  3. Faulty block heater – Because block heaters run so frequently, they often develop a low coolant temperature alarm when they become faulty.
  4. Wet stacking – An excessive amount of no-load run time may cause an engine to become over-fueled and damaged.
  5. Air in the fuel system – If a generator is not used regularly, air can enter the fuel lines and prevent injectors from firing. This problem can be prevented by performing weekly inspections.
  6. Out of Fuel – If the fuel level falls too low, the generators will automatically shut down to avoid the fuel system drawing in air.
  7. Controls not in “Auto” – It means the power generator wasn’t switched off, and it may not be serving as the primary control switch. It can be caused by human error, open breakers, improperly reset alarms or switchgear, emergencies, and more.

Our Backup Generator Installation Process

We complete the following steps when installing a generator.

Analyzing the situation – Before anything else, we will take the time to evaluate the situation. As we look at your existing energy needs, we will find out which generator will work best for you. We do not want to choose a generator that is too large for your needs. It would be too expensive. Rather, we’ll make sure the generator fits your needs perfectly.

Installing the unit – Secondly, we will search diligently for the best location for your generator. It’s important to us that the generator looks good and works even better. We will locate a safe place for installing the generator. A concrete pad will be laid down and the generator installed on top of that in most cases, this ensures that the generators remain secure at all times.

Connecting the transfer switch and the fuel – Lastly, fuel needs to be connected and the transfer switch to be installed. Switching between the two power sources will be easy with this switch. It is wise to use an automatic transfer switch. Your generator will automatically take over when there is a power outage because your automatic switch will engage.

Outage Simulation – Our experts will test if everything is working properly as it should. In addition, we recommend you self-test every week to ensure everything continues to function as normal.

Benefits of Having a Generator Installed

Don’t be fooled. Owning a standby generator, whether for your home or business is not just about keeping the lights going and having a place to charge your phone. Backup generators can run an entire home full of electronics and even power-hungry HVAC systems. Or keep a business running in a blackout that has 100x the electrical needs of a home.
