Whole House Generator Repair

Preventative maintenance and repair for generators in Northeast Ohio

The importance of keeping your generator running smoothly

Freestanding whole-house generators are designed to work nonstop for many hours at a time, shouldering the electrical load of an entire household. As such, they require a certain amount of routine maintenance to prevent degradation and ensure that they are ready for a power outage at any time. After all, what good is a generator unless it can be relied upon in an emergency scenario?

What kind of maintenance does a whole-house generator in Cleveland need?

To stay in peak performance, generators require comprehensive annual maintenance. At these regular tune-ups, licensed technicians provide the following services:

  • Cleaning the generator
  • Changing the unit’s oil and oil filter
  • Replacing overworked motor brushes
  • Inspecting the air filter, spark plugs, spark, and battery
  • Conducting a test transfer
  • Detecting and fixing any minor issues before they become a problem

What People Are Saying

  • Excellent and prompt service.  The workmen were professional and helpful in their explanation of care and service of the equipment.

  • I want you to know how pleased I was with the entire experience.  From the initial meeting with Chris through the installation of my new A/C unit.

    - Sondra S.( Shaker Heights, Air Conditioning Installation July 2017 )
  • Installers were spot on time at 8 am, took care not to track dirt into house, and were both courteous and friendly.  Excellent quality work to boot!

    - John S.( Cleveland, Air Conditioning Installation, June 2017 )
  • I have had several projects from Verne & Ellsworth, across boiler replacements, heating system installation, and air conditioning system set up and install.  Each of these times, Bill Hann takes a ton of his time to talk to my wife and I to learn about the issues we’re having, explain the root causes of those issues, and suggest fixes that we know will prevent the issues from coming back – not just paper over the issue temporarily.  Lastly, he always delivers on time – onsite when he says he will be, fishing when he says he will – and always makes sure every aspect of the job is completed, from material removal and set up, to equipment install, to clean up after the project.  A++ and highly recommended!

  • The unit is working very well.  The installers were very professional, showed me how everything worked, and cleaned the basement beautifully.  I would never have even known they were there.  Thank you again.
