Your whole-house generator gives you peace of mind that you’ll be able to keep your Chicago home running normally in the event of a power outage, and a quality generator will provide many years of reliable performance. Exactly how long your generator lasts depends on whether or not it’s properly maintained and how many hours it’s used.

When to Replace Your Generator
Since a generator isn’t something you use all the time, it can be difficult to know when it’s time for an upgrade. Our licensed Chicago electricians can assess the unit and help you decide if your current generator has some more life in it or if replacing it is the better option.
A few signs replacing your generator is the way to go include:
- Doesn’t Start Up Easily
When the power goes out, your generator should automatically come on and take over the powering of your Chicago home. If this doesn’t happen, or if the power is inconsistent, this indicates a problem.
- Increased Fuel Consumption
If you notice that your generator is using more fuel than it once did, our electricians recommend upgrading to a more efficient unit.
- Frequent Need for Repairs
A whole-home generator isn’t worth the investment if you can’t rely on it to work when you need it. If you find that you’re often calling for repairs, consider upgrading to a unit that is more reliable.
Also, if your unit is older than 20 years or hasn’t been properly maintained, you may want to consider replacing the home generator.
