Is Your Standby Generator Summer Ready?

As we begin to move into the summer months, changes in weather conditions can have an impact on how your generator performs

Here are some ways to make sure your standby generator is ready to provide power in the event of a mains failure:

  1. Generator Location – make sure that your generator is placed is a protected and well-ventilated area. Poor airflow and direct heat can cause your generator to overheat and shut down. If you are unsure on the best positioning for your generator, Shanahan Power is on-hand to offer advice.
  2. Testing – Run your generator regularly to check that it is working. Found out more about the common causes of generator failure here
  3. Fuel – make sure you have a fuel supply ready, and if you have had your fuel for a while you may need to get it tested to ensure it has not been contaminated. You can find out more about storing fuel here
  4. Maintenance – Preventative maintenance is essential in ensuring the health of your standby generator. Our Asset Care Management service provides access to our specialist service engineers and our 24/7/365 Breakdown Assist Facility.
