Annual Preventative Gas Generator Maintenance

Annual Preventative Gas Generator Maintenance

Ensure the Comfort and Safety of Your Home & Family

All stand-by generators require periodic preventative maintenance, typically at two years or 200 hour run time intervals, whichever occurs first. Maintenance is highly recommended by the Generac/Honeywell to insure long term trouble free operation and validity of the warranty. Early detection can help you identify small problems before they become major repair costs. Generac/Honeywell recommends all service and maintenance be performed by a Trained Authorized Dealer, such as KEIL.

Included in a KEILClub Membership is an annual inspection and maintenance service of your generator. There is nothing better for the efficiency and long term operation of this system than annual preventative maintenance. Benefits of annual maintenance on your system include:

  • Works at peak efficiency when you need it!
  • Experiences considerably fewer breakdowns overall

Mobile Link Remote Monitoring:

KEIL will install your new generator complete with a remote monitoring system. If your generator is installed by someone else, we strongly recommend adding a Mobile Link to your system any way! With this, you and KEIL can keep tabs on every aspect of your generator, 24 hours a day and if you like you can too! With Mobile Link you can monitor your generator on a smart phone, tablet or computer. If your generator needs an oil change, maintenance, service or any type of attention we will know immediately. Even if you are away on business or a vacation KEIL will be informed that your generator needs attention and we can take care of it even in your absence.
