Generator Maintenance in Southeast Michigan
A generator is a small engine that powers your home or business should the power go out. Just like your car, it has an established life span, measured in hours instead of miles. Also like your car, preventive maintenance is important to keeping that life span as long as possible. Standby generators, because they do not run frequently, should last as long as 30 years, but you are going to need to pay attention to maintenance to get this life span out of them.
If you are looking to protect your standby generator and ensure it’s ready to deliver service when you need it, AAA Service Network is ready to assist. We offer generator maintenance plans that will ensure your generator is checked and tuned from top to bottom, so you’ll be ready for the next power outage.

Why Is Generator Maintenance Important?
Power outages happen without warning, and without a working generator, your home or business is at risk. Your generator needs a regular tune-up to work at its best. With generator tune-ups, you can rest easy knowing your generator is ready to switch on at a moment’s notice.
Don’t wonder if your generator is ready or not. Schedule your generator tune-up in Brighton or Howell today.
How Often Should I Schedule Generator Tune-Ups?
Generator tune-ups are typically scheduled based on hours of operation. The manufacturer of your generator will recommend a maintenance schedule. However, some factors can mean that you need more frequent checks, such as:
- Dusty or corrosive environment
- High humidity
- Temperature extremes
- How often the generator runs
AAA Service Network has technicians who can help you determine the best maintenance schedule for your generator.
Whether your generator powers your home or business, make sure it’s well maintained. Talk to AAA Service Network about setting up a generator maintenance schedule that works with your system. Call 877-775-3295 or schedule an appointment online today.
What to Expect at Your Generator Maintenance Appointment
When you have AAA Service Network come to your property to maintain your generator, the first step will be a visual inspection of the generator. We will look for any signs of damage or wear that need to be addressed. Then we will inspect all of the critical systems, which include:
- Transfer switch
- Fuel system
- Coolant system
- Air system
- Starting system
Our technicians will clean the generator, check the oil level, and ensure the engine has proper coolant levels. We will check all clamps and wire connections, and look for corrosion near terminals. If we notice any problems, we will recommend a repair solution to help. This check should be performed monthly.
In addition, we recommend more detailed annual inspections, which should include:
- Checking the thermal protection level of the coolant
- Changing engine oil and filter
- Replacement of air and fuel filters
- Alternator and transfer switch inspection and maintenance
