Keeping Your Generator Running

hvac greensboro ncThe rumble of a generator is a welcomed noise when you have not had electricity for a few hours due to a hurricane. We have put together a small list of tips to help you keep your generator running efficiently and safely:

Gas It Up – It is crucial to make sure that your generator always has plenty of gas in it before you run it. If your unit runs out of fuel entirely, it can cause damage. Additionally, you want to make sure that the gas inside of it is stable and fresh, so always drain your generator after the season is over.

Follow Directions – Every generator may seem the same, but each unit is a little different from the other. Take some time to sit down with the manual, learn about generator maintenance, and test it out before you are stuck in the middle of a storm trying to use your system.

Keep It Dry – Did you know that you cannot run your generator in inclement weather if it is not adequately covered? It is vital that you keep it covered at all times, but you should never run your generator indoors, as the carbon monoxide can harm you and your family.
