Hurricane Home Readiness

While hurricanes and tropical storms are inevitable, being without power is not. With early planning, you can help ensure that you, your loved ones and your home are prepared when severe weather strikes.

As a leader in backup power solutions for the past 65 years, Generac has proudly helped millions of customers at home, at work and everywhere in between be ready for unexpected outages before they occurred.

Ensuring Your Standby Generator Is Storm-Ready

  • Clear debris and any obstructions away from the generator.
  • Keep at least 3 ft. of clearance around the generator. This also includes moving plants and decorations away from the generator.
  • Ensure the inside of the enclosure is free of debris (such as leaves, sticks, dirt, etc).
  • Check your battery for proper charge and clean any corrosion on the terminals.
  • Check the air filter. If it’s dirty or damaged, replace it.
  • Inspect lines and connections for fuel or oil leaks. Fix as necessary.
  • Check spark plugs. If gap is out of tolerance, re-gap or replace.
  • Check sediment trap. Empty if necessary.
  • Watch out for low oil levels if your generator is running continuously. Remember to check the oil level each day and keep extra oil on hand.
  • Request a service and maintenance appointment.
