TechXpert verified by Ken Kontra
Maintenance costs for your generator can range from $350 to $550. The cost to maintain your generator will depend on the type you have and the frequency of maintenance.
Routine Maintenance is Worth the Cost
When your home experiences a power outage from the strong winds and heavy rains, you’ll depend on your generator to restore power to some or all of your home’s appliances. So it’s smart to schedule a routine maintenance check for your generator before anything goes wrong, to make sure it’s working properly when you need it most.
Depending on the size and type of your generator, maintenance costs can range from $350 to $550. Keep in mind that the longer you run your generator for, the more maintenance checks it may need.
The size and type of your generator can determine how much service costs will be. If you have a standby generator, it’s ideal to schedule a semi-annual maintenance check, which can cost you between $200 and $300. If you have a portable generator, an annual check-up can range from $80 to $150. If your generator is fueled by diesel, gas, natural gas, or propane, an annual maintenance check can cost you between $300 and $550.
Don’t let a storm or heatwave claim the power in your home. By keeping your generator properly maintained, you and your home can be in control when the weather outside isn’t.
