GENERAC SERVICE - PARTS - INSTALLATION   

Generators restore normal electricity supply to your home in the event that the electricity supply is interrupted from the utility company or the result of severe weather.  These generators are fueled by Natural Gas or Propane to give you continuous automatic operation without having to worry with refilling a fuel tank.  These generators will automatically supply power to your home or office even while your away.


Generac  Preventive Maintenance & Warranty Dealer
Generac recommends having your new generator serviced after the break-in period from 8 to 20 hours of use or at 1 year.  This includes changing the oil and filter, checking and adjusting the valve clearance, clean spart plugs, voltage adjustment, frequency adjustment and a overall inspection.  Then have yearly preventive maintenance done not to exceed 200 hours between oil changes.   We provide maintenance and factory warranty service for  Generac Air-Cooled home standby generators from 7KW to 20KW and liquid cooled gaseous units to 150KW.  The following  brands are made and warranted by Generac.: Lowes CenturianSears, Carrier, Eaton, Siemens and Honeywell.
