Is Your Generator Ready for Winter?
Weather drives the majority of power outages in the U.S., and winter is prime time for ice, snow, wind and freezing temperatures to create hazardous conditions that lead to utility power failure. NOAA is calling for a warmer temperatures and normal precipitation this winter throughout the southeast United States, however ice storms and cold snaps are still expected. “Without either El Nino or La Nina conditions, short-term climate patterns like the Arctic Oscillation will drive winter weather and could result in large swings in temperature and precipitation,” said Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center.
While Perkins is here to take care of your generator year-round, there are few basic tasks that will keep your generator in peak running condition this winter:
- Conduct a simple visual inspection – inspect the generator and all the components such as filters/oil level and spark plugs. Check the area around the generator to make sure it is clear of debris such as leaves or rodent nests. Also check the exhaust and ventilation for blockages. Look for leaks, or staining, which can indicate a broken component.
- Check the battery – batteries are the single most common cause of failure of a generator to start and operate properly in the event of an outage or exercise cycle. Batteries should be changed every 2 years to avoid an unexpected failure.
- Prep your fuel – make sure you have enough fuel on hand for outages and consider adding a fuel stabilizer if that was recommended based on fuel choice/usage.
- Monitor weekly exercise – be sure to listen for your generators self-test. This takes place at the same time every week and it is a great way to know that your generator will operate during an outage. The exercise period lasts anywhere from 5 – 20 minutes, depending on your generator.
Our team is here to help with your generator’s maintenance – we offer annual maintenance agreements that keep your generator in tip-top shape. Prices vary depending upon the size of your generator. Learn more.
We also offer generator monitoring that will alert us if there are any issues with your generator. This allows us to be proactive and address any issues before a power outage!
