How to maintain your generator in good condition?


By Zach Lachapelle

It is very important to do a preventive maintenance of your equipment in order to limit their breaking and to avoid expensive emergency phone calls out of operating hours.
Before winter period, you must check up on the battery, its charger and the motor-heater to ensure cold-weather starting.
It is important to follow manufacturer’s recommendations for maintenance. Adjustments are often to be made, preventing equipment’s breaking and therefore power outage, loss of income, etc…
Always verify if ever your unit does its weekly test and make sure that none of the warning lights are illuminated.

These processes are not enough to identify problems that could occur in the near future, Volts Energies is offering a maintenance according to CSA C282 standards with a detailed report of what has been done.
