What You Need to Know About Your Generator

Okay, you’ve got your standby generator installed and up and running. To keep your peace of mind intact over time, there are a few things you should know about living with your generator.

As with any major appliance, simple maintenance is required. All generators require periodic oil and filter changes to ensure maximum performance for years of reliable service. As one of Southeast Michigan’s leading generator dealers and installers, Oak Electric offers instructions on our website on how to: power down a generator, check the oil and fill the oil.

Also, your generator is equipped with overload protection. So in the rare event of an overload, the generator’s circuit breaker will trip, disconnecting the unit from the load. Simply correct the overload and reset the breaker in the generator.

For any other issues, rest assured that Oak Electric’s generator specialists are available 24/7. And, Oak Electric is an authorized Generac, Briggs & Stratton & GE dealer for generator parts and service.

But don’t take our word for it. Here is what just one satisfied Oak Electric generator customer had to say about us on Angie’s List:

“Oak Electric sold me my generator and has performed warranty and annual service since I purchased it.  The installation was done on time.  Installers were efficient and helpful.  Upon completion, clean up was excellent.  Annual service has been scheduled to meet my schedule.  Their review of the generator’s performance and fine tuning was thorough and not rushed. I am pleased with the generator’s performance and I would highly recommend Oak Electric.”
