Generator Maintenance

Proper generator maintenance is required to ensure long life and reliable energy from your standby generator unit. Our company proudly offers this professional maintenance service and we wish to offer it to you.

If you have a generator maintenance agreement with our company, your unit will be placed on our schedule to be serviced automatically every six months (or annually if you prefer) with no appointment necessary.

We take the worry out of maintaining your generator and keep detailed records on your unit so you don't have to.

The owner's manual for your generator recommends regular maintenance of your backup generator, just like your vehicle. P.J. Hughes Electric, Inc. has created a complete critical maintenance program to ensure your generator maintains optimal working status so it is always ready to provide power when you need it the most.
