Our highly qualified and certified generator technicians can provide ongoing maintenance to keep your system in great shape and ready to provide power when you need it most.

Generator Maintenance from Certified Experts with 50+ Years of Experience

Bradley Mechanical's generator maintenance package includes a complete and thorough inspection. We look at all critical generator components, including the engine, transfer switches and the outside of the unit itself.

Our generator maintenance packages can include:

  • Filter cleaning and replacement. Filters require regular cleaning and replacement for the generator to function properly.
  • Load bank testing. We recommend load bank testing once per year to help minimize potential long-term issues like moisture buildup, particle settling in the fuel and carbon deposits in the engine.
  • Coolant flushes. This will help reduce sediment buildup, which can lead to corrosion in the coolant pipes and tanks.
  • Fuel cleaning. Fuel cleaning regularly helps recondition, stabilize and decontaminate the fuel. It will help extract water, sludge and sediments that build up in the tanks.
  • Replacement parts. Your generator's belts and hoses experience the most wear and tear and will need replacing over time. We'll also check out all other components to make sure each piece is in good working condition.

These steps and procedures help prevent future mechanical issues and keep your generator running as intended. Performing routine generator maintenance service can help reduce the risk of a generator failure that could lead to significant damage to the engine. And the last thing you want to worry about when the power is out is how to fix your backup generator.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often do you service a gas generator?

Just like any other piece of machinery with moving parts, a gas generator needs regular service to continue functioning effectively. There are many more simple maintenance tasks you can do yourself. Still, a gas generator should be serviced at least once a year by a professional. We recommend scheduling these services in the spring or fall.

How can I know which generator is right for my needs?

The first step is determining what you need (or want) to keep powered when the electricity goes out. Totaling up the wattages of all the appliances you'll need during a power outage will give you an idea of the generator size to install. The next step would be determining the best fuel option. But you don't have to do this on your own. Our team of generator service experts can help you find the right generator to fit your home and budget.
