How to Get Excellent Service For Your Home Generator

October 15, 2018

When you buy a home generator, you buy it to protect yourself in natural disasters and other emergencies. Whether it’s bad weather, a long-term power outage, or other need, you need your generator to work when little else does.

The most important thing you can do in that time in between emergencies is keeping your machine in top shape. This means getting regular service – and making sure that service is top-notch.


Here are steps you can take to make sure you get excellent service for your backup generator.


Buy Local

If you’ve been encouraged to buy local, it’s probably been because of the impact on your town’s economy. Buying local helps support people who live in your area and keeps money in your market.


However, there’s an even important reason to buy local – it ensures you get great generator service. If you want your home generator to be in great shape during an emergency, it pays to have a local company who can service the machine quickly and professionally.


When you buy from Northside Power, you know that we operate and live in your community. If you need service or repair on your home generator, we’ll be there for you.


Keep Up With Preventative Maintenance

As with most machinery, the most effective way to keep costs down and help your generator last a long time is to keep up with preventative maintenance.


Having a regular preventative maintenance plan with a local professional company is the easiest and best way to stay on top of the schedule.


You’ll want to periodically get oil changes, tune-ups, and system inspections. If you keep this up, you can prevent a lot of breakdowns that cost a lot more.


Choose Priority Service if You Can

What if there’s a massive outage and your generator fails? Do you have a local professional who will put you first in line to get your power restarted as quickly as possible?


If you choose priority service, you can have those benefits and much more. At Northside Power, our priority service includes 24/7 monitoring of your home generator system, a scheduled exercise each week where the generator is started, and no overtime charges. And that’s in addition to the priority breakdown service!


If you want the very best, choose a local provider who gives you the option to receive the very top level of service.

It’s not just a matter of convenience – like having light. Instead, it’s about safety and health. Your food can spoil if you don’t have power for a period of time. You can’t cook at home without power. You also can’t regulate the temperature of your home.
