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

  • We have used Verne & Ellsworth Hann for 25 years for yearly tune ups and repairs. We would trust no one else. Three years ago they installed an air conditioning system in our old, large Shaker Heights home. They did a fantastic job. Other companies who install AC in these old homes will tell you that they can only put duct work to the 2nd floor. Verne & Ellsworth Hann was able to snake the air conditioning ducts down into almost all of our 1st floor rooms. Their workers were professional, neat and efficient and we love the new system. This past fall upon our annual boiler inspection, the technician found that we had a crack in our 20+ year old boiler. He was able to remove some heating units to nurse it along until we could schedule a new boiler installation. This was completed in December (including running new return lines and asbestos removal). Again, the work was all completed professionally, efficiently and neatly. I always recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann to my friends. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.

  • Great job!  My house is nice and warm with no more worries about the ancient boiler.  Thank you for making the extra effort regarding the garage heater and sorting out the complicated multi component heating system.
