Why and How Often Does Your Generator Need an Oil Change?
Backup Power When You Need It
Backup Power When You Need It
Time without power is money lost. That’s why you invested in a generator and why you rely on a service provider to take care of your equipment to ensure its proper operation in an emergency. Generators require regular operation along with a routine scheduled maintenance to prevent their engines from seizing or failing during emergencies.
There’s nothing quite like fresh oil to reach peak engine performance when running your generator during an emergency. Generator engines have a variety of parts that move at high speeds. These moving parts tend to cause friction, which produces heat. If you schedule yearly oil changes with a qualified generator service provider like GenServe, your generator engine will have proper lubrication that reduces the amount of heat produced by the engine. Oil changes also get rid of dirt and debris, which makes your engine run slower. If your generator engine heats up because of old oil, it will wear down and eventually stop working properly or more importantly fail during an emergency or power outage.

In the United States, the EPA has created what is known as the Air Quality Index which measures and reports on air quality. While the intention of the Air Quality Index (AQI) when it was initially developed was to protect the general public from hazardous levels of pollutants that may be present in the ozone, the AQI has since been expanded to govern the use of emergency backup power generators.check your air quality
