Those of us who live and work in the Beaumont area must have at least of the early settlers’ genes in us.
Okay, so maybe we don’t live in log cabins or wash our clothes down by the creek, but life in Jefferson County can be plenty adventurous with the ongoing threat of one storm or another knocking out electrical power.
Several years ago, Connor Plumbing took a positive step to help our customers keep their power in even if the public power supply were to shut down. And that was, we began installing whole-house generators.
Well, lo and behold, they started selling like hot cakes, with a lot of happy customers to show for it. But then we started getting some “not so happy” calls once customer generators didn’t perform as well during a second third power outage as it did the first time it was pressed into service.
So today, we’re here to tell you that just like your home AC and plumbing systems, a whole-house generator needs regular maintenance at least once a year, and preferably twice. Some need oil changes, others filter changes, dust needs to be removed, there are other parts that need to be cleaned, and so on. But here’s the key: only a professional should be engaged to maintain or repair your generator. It’s not a job even for a skilled DIYer.
At Connor, we maintain and repair all types of home generators, so if yours hasn’t been looked at in a year or more, contact us today so we can make sure yours is ready keep your power running the next time the public power supply goes out.
