So you made the big decision and purchased your Generac Whole Home Standby Power Unit. There are just a few things you should keep in mind to help protect that investment and get the most from your unit. Another thing you want to protect is the factory warranty.
The best way to protect that warranty is to have a Factory Authorized Dealer and Service Provider install the unit. The next step is to take advantage of the preventive maintenance packages that Dealer offers. Take advantage of the other products that Generac has made available to protect your unit and extend it's life. Products such as mobile link and a surge protector are a minimal financial investment, but provide maximum protection.
If you do decide to perform the maintenance on your own, be sure to read the manual. One maintenance tip that we have seen overlooked is the fact that all new units need to have the oil changed after the first 25 hours of run time. That would be just one day without power. Never Dark Carolinas offers a training course that goes over the maintenance basics for new owners.
As the saying goes "an ounce of prevention is a pound of cure". With the proper care your Generac Standby Power Unit will last a long time. Get the most out of your unit and your investment with an ounce of prevention...It will be worth it.
