Monday, March 14th, 2016

Everything comes bigger in Texas, and unfortunately, that can include the weather as well.

Furthermore, if you live in a rural area away from the civic grid, you’ll need reliable electrical power regardless of what the weather is like. For all those reasons, a reliable generator for your home is a good investment this spring. If you’ve made that decision, fantastic! The next step is to discuss your options with a trained professional. Here’s a few tips to think about as you get started. (more…)

When Is the Best Time for Generator Repair in Madison County?

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Whole-home generators keep your home safe and secure during major power outages. But, like other mechanical devices, your whole-home generator will likely need repair at some point. No one wants to find out his/her generator isn’t working when it’s most needed; so what are the best times for generator repair in Madison County? We’ll discuss that more below, but one of the most important aspects of repairing your generator is making sure you hire professionals who can truly fix it. The highly-trained electricians at Ardon Maintenance are here to help you with any problems you may have with your generator, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Best Time for Generator Repair

While there’s no ideal time to repair a generator, there are some signs that it’s time to give us a call:

  • When you detect a burning smell – a burning smell coming from any electrical system is never a good thing, so if you smell a burning odor coming from your generator, turn it off immediately and call for a technician.
  • When you hear something strange – when you hear something odd coming from your generator, such as a pop, snap or crackling sound, this can be indicative of an electrical issue developing with the generator or its connection to your home’s electrical box. It’s important to shut off the generator and call for a professional.
  • When the generator doesn’t turn on – it can be tempting to try and start your generator on your own, particularly if it had just been working recently. However, generators are complex electrical appliances so it’s best to let experts handle the situation.
  • When you know there’s an existing problem – because generators aren’t used frequently, it can be easy to ignore an existing problem, especially if your generator stills runs. Problems won’t just work themselves out, and are likely to become worse.

Your whole-home generator doesn’t just keep your home going during a power outage; it keeps your life going. This is why it’s important to call for repair as soon as you can.
