Summer has finally turned to fall here in Indiana, and the weather is out to prove it. It won’t be long at all before the fallen leaves turn to snow, and we wake to frozen mornings. Now is the time to prepare your commercial generator for winter.
Why do I need to winterize my commercial generator?
In today’s demanding world of security and information integrity, most commercial and industrial facilities rely on a standby generator as their primary source of backup electrical power. Just because Mother Nature slows down in the winter, that doesn’t mean your business has to.
Like you take action to winterize your vehicle, you should show your commercial generator the same preparation. If your generator is not prepared and maintained properly, the frigid temperatures could damage your standby generator system and prevent it from operating properly when you need it most.
- Failure to service the system for cold weather could result in costly repairs to your generator in the future.
- Most commercial businesses rely on electricity for many aspects of service or production. Without backup power during a power outage, your business will lose productivity or even be forced to close until power is restored.
- A power outage in the winter without access to backup power leaves your building vulnerable to property damage. Flooding, burst pipes, and power surges could all cause damage to your building during a power outage.
