Backup Power System Preparedness Checklist
Backup power systems require regular maintenance so that they work properly when you really need them. We recommend having your power system serviced by a professional generator technician at regular intervals.
In addition to regular service, the following 7 tips should help make sure your generator will be prepared in the event of a power outage:
Check that the battery charger is working properly, and battery life.
2. Load Bank Test
Periodically, run load bank test to make sure the generator handles the required load and to ensure exhaust system has proper particulate burn off.
Check fuel level, and to make sure there is no contamination, water or sediments.
Check that air, fuel, and coolant filters are clean.
Check all fluids regularly, both the fluid level and cleanliness.
6. Automatic Transfer Switch
Perform a periodic real world test of the power system by cutting the utility power source.
7. Coolant Heater
Be sure to check that the coolant heater is functioning properly.Get power equipment service help from Global Power Supply. Call contact us today at 1 (800) 706-0906.
