Get Your Generator Ready for Winter

Many people take electricity for granted, since it is seen as a basic necessity of modern life. On Long Island, power outages have become a problem that many homeowners deal with each winter. Instead of getting left in dark, generators are the perfect back-up plan when the power goes out. While your neighbors are fumbling in the dark, you will power through with your daily routine.

Now that the winter is fast approaching, it is important to prepare your generator for the chilly months ahead. Below are some maintenance tips that will allow your generator to perform at peak efficiency.

  • Make sure you have fuel for your generator on hand. Keep the fuel away from heat.
  • Never run your generator inside the home, as it emits harmful carbon monoxide gas.
  • Have your generator serviced and tuned up by a professional.

Winter is the most inconvenient time of year to have a power outage. When the mercury drops down, having power and heat in your home is an absolute must. A generator is the perfect backup system when you and your family need it the most.
