What Kind of Generac Generator Do I Need?

Some homeowners choose a Generac model that can support their entire house, while others choose to connect only a few key systems. After your whole house generator installation, your Generac backup generator can sit outside your home like an air conditioning unit, ready to go when you need it most.

Our electricians can recommend the right Generac backup generator for your specific needs. We also provide protection plans and home safety checks to make sure everything is running as it should once your system is installed.

How Does a Generac Backup Generator Work?

A Generac generator runs through an existing gas or LP supply. Unlike portable generators, there are no extension cords. A Generac generator starts and stops automatically — no manual intervention needed! 

A Generac home backup generator delivers power directly to your home’s electrical system, powering up your entire home or just the items you choose. That’s part of the reason why Generac is preferred by seven out of ten homeowners who use a backup generator.

The Right Advice, the Right Solutions

If you’re thinking about whole house generator installation, Master Electrical Service is here to help. Do you need a Generac model that will support your entire house or would you rather use it to keep just your refrigerator and other major appliances running in case of a power outage?

Whether you need whole-house support or just want the kids to be able to watch TV if the power goes out, there’s a Generac generator tailor-made for you. One of our expert electricians can recommend the right one to serve your home and family.

Once your Generac power generator is installed, Master Electrical Service is on your side. In addition to installation solutions, home safety checks, and generator installation, we’re here to help you make sure everything is running smoothly. 

Five Signs that You Need Generator Repair

Not sure whether your generator is running properly? Here are a few things to look out for that could be cause for concern with your whole house power generator:

Problems Starting

If your generator doesn’t start, it could be a problem with the gas line or the electrical system. It could be a dead battery, as well, so it’s important to test your generator regularly to make sure it’s functioning right. Generators that sit idle for a long time are especially at risk of battery issues.

Turning On and Off

If your Generac power generator starts and stops or doesn’t consistently provide power, it could be overheating or experiencing problems with the battery or fuel. Our generator repair experts in Ogden can diagnose the problem and get your system up and running again.

Leaks

Generators use a variety of liquids, like fuel, oil, and coolant, to name a few. Older generators could have one of those fluids leak from the lines or storage containers. In addition to being greasy, the leaks could be dangerous. Fortunately, our expert Generac generator repair experts can diagnose the problem with ease.

Low Power

After your whole house generator installation, it’s a good idea to test it occasionally, both to prevent battery problems and so you’ll know if it’s providing all of the power you need. If your Generac generator isn’t powering up properly, that doesn’t necessarily mean it needs to be replaced. It could just need a tune-up by one of our electricians.

Damage Inside or Out

Remember to check your Generac generator after any major storm or incident. Damage to the outside could be an indication of problems inside. If you are concerned about the state of your generator, give us a call. We’ll come out and inspect the unit for any worn-out wires, lines, or connectors. Spotting a problem early is the best way to avoid a major breakdown later.

5 Signs Your Generator Could Use Repairs

Problems Starting

A generator that doesn't start could be defunct for a variety of reasons. Depending on your unit, it's possible that there's a problem with the gas line or electrical system. It could also be a dead battery. Generators that are idle for a lengthy period of time can be particularly vulnerable to this, so it's important to test your generator every once in a while to keep it operational

Leaks

If you see a pool of liquid, that's never a good sign. Generators use different liquids such as fuel, oil, and coolant. Especially older generators can have any of these liquids leaking from the lines or storage containers. These leaks can be greasy and dangerous, so it's best to have our Ogden generator repair specialists take a look at it.

Turning On and Off

If your generator can start, but not consistently provide power, then it should be checked by one of our Ogden generator repair experts as there are a multitude of reasons this could be happening. It could be due to some of the aforementioned reasons a generator isn't starting. It could also be that your generator is shutting itself down because it's overheating.

Low Power

Another reason to test your generator on a regular basis is so that you know exactly how much power it's supposed to provide. Just because your generator isn't providing all the power it usually does, doesn't mean it needs to be replaced necessarily. It could just use a tune-up by one of our Ogden generator repair specialists who'll recommend a replacement if it's necessary.

Damaged on the Inside or Out

It's always a good idea to have a look at your generator after any major storm or incident. If exterior damage is severe, it could negatively affect the innards. If you can take a look inside the unit, look for any worn out wires, lines, or connectors. Spotting a problem before it fully manifests is your best bet at keeping your lights on and adding years to your generator's life.
