How to Get the Most Out of Your Generator This Winter
Oh, the weather outside is frightful — and can’t be described in any other way. When it comes to winter, the simplest of tasks could take hours, while certain necessities (such as electricity) can be lost completely. If you’re looking to take control this season and have a winter generator from Cannondale, then here are some helpful tips to follow:
Eliminate Potential Problems Ahead of Time
Fact: one of the most frustrating occurrences is when you need your generator the most — and it doesn’t seem to function. At Cannondale Generators, we can’t stress enough the importance of having routine maintenance check-ups, which can be scheduled through our Scheduled Maintenance Program. When you sign-up for this useful program (flexible and cost-effective), it will be the perfect, stress-free way to ensure that your winter generator is up and running — and ultimately ready to take on the wrath of winter!
Observe Your Unit Daily
When you own a generator, your unit will build up debris over time — and we don’t mean on the outside (although that’s possible, too). Before the winter winds strike up at an unruly speed, it’s important to take charge of your unit and look for any visible buildup. Before you begin to panic, take a look at your generator inside and out. For example, if you own a Generac Power Generator, you can monitor the wellbeing of your unit on either your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer. By having a digital monitoring service from the comfort of your home (or on the go), you’ll then have a definite response of when you should change the filter, and when to replace any pertinent parts within the overall unit. This is a surefire way to keep your winter generator intact and leave less room for error!
Know Your Generator’s Birthday
No matter what season it may be, it’s always important to know when you initially had your generator installed. Typically, older models of generators last for approximately twenty years — and nothing more. It won’t be pleasant to discover that your unit’s lifespan comes to a halt when you need it the most. If you’re looking for a winter generator to withstand the toughest of elements, in addition to our generous selection of long-lasting generators, take a look at a Kohler Power Generator — which is equipped with a commercial-grade engine built to withstand extreme workloads over many years, and runs on your home’s natural (or LP gas), too! It’s a wise investment for those who want to be left in the heat this winter!
