Scheduled generator maintenance is vital to the reliable operation of any power generation system. Any engine systems requires routine maintenance whether it's a car, truck, lawn equipment, or a standby generator system.

Benchmark Electric offers a Preventive Maintenance Program to ensure that your power generation equipment is running properly when you need it most.

Consistent routine generator maintenance increases equipment reliability and durability. A standby system tested and inspected on a regular schedule will perform as needed at critical times.

Most standby generator manufacturers recommend routine generator maintenance, including an oil & filter change, every 200 engine hours or annually, whichever occurs first. So, if you have been on generator power for a week or longer, it's time to schedule maintenance.

The generator industry recommends replacing the generator battery every two years. It's also worth noting that the #1 cause of generator failures is due to battery failures. Make it a routine to install a new generator battery every two years.

Routine generator service is not just about changing the oil and filter or replacing the battery every two years. Professionally maintained standby power systems include testing the generator under house load and transfer switch tests.
