What’s in a Service Call?
Pretty much everything that you own will need some kind of periodic maintenance. This is especially true for tools that have engines. Engines have moving parts and operate using fuel and multiple types of lubricants and filters. These factors combine to make great tools, but without maintenance, these moving parts can deteriorate and cause the engine to work more slowly.
In a state like Florida, where we experience heavy rain and wind on a regular basis, power can go out at any time. Maintenance is the best way to make sure that your generator is ready to handle your facility’s voltage requirements. Some experts even provide service plans that dictate what needs to be done service-wise, based upon how many hours your generator has run. We recommend that you plan on having a comprehensive service plan that is administered by professionals. Yes, it costs a little extra, but realistically it is part of the peace of mind that having a standby system provides.
At ACF Standby Systems, we offer comprehensive service plans to make sure that your generator is in proper working order when your business needs it. We strive to work with our customers’ needs and budgets. We have some recommended service plans but would be happy to put together a service plan that meets both your budget and the requirements of your specific equipment.
Some of the services we provide include:
- Visually and manually inspecting your generator to ensure that there are no leaks, cracks or shortages of fuel or lubricants.
- Testing important portions of the generator such as the cooling system, block heater, turbo charger and other areas, to ensure that they are in proper working order.
- Verifying that functional parts like belts, hoses and spark plugs are intact and ready to perform.
- Communicating with your staff to make sure that they know what to look for and how to handle basic maintenance issues, so that your generator can stay in working order. We also provide a full report of our inspection, what we did and any recommendations we have for your system every time we come out.
- If you opt for a major inspection, we clean and replace functional parts (spark plugs, oil filters, etc.). We can also take fuel and oil samples to be tested to ensure your system is ready to operate.
A service call is a way to ensure that your generator is ready to back up your business. Our service plans include more than we talked about here, but we just wanted to give you an idea of what we can do for you. Our plans can be tapered to your needs and we will work with you to put together a plan that gives you what your generator needs. Our technicians are certified and experienced, so having us service your equipment means that it will always work.
