Life by the seashore feels relaxing and free, but a saltwater environment creates challenges for your generator’s dependability. We saw a good example of this recently in Cape Hatteras, with a generator enclosure. that had completely rusted closed. The good news is that once we got it opened up, our inspection showed that the generator had a minor issue, the problem was that it took a saws-all to open the enclosure!
Since corrosion frequently plagues generators near the sea, Kohler®-certified, specially trained technicians always spend the time to check your connections. One loose wire or one corroded cable can literally keep your home or business in the dark. (And now, with the patented Power Armor Paint system that resists rust and corrosion, new Kohler® generators have an added layer of protection.)
Whether your generator is twenty years old or brand new, you can count on Palmer Generator experts to closely inspect for common coastal problems. A thorough inspection includes taking all connections apart and checking and treating the area with Dielectric Grease, which inhibits corrosion. Then we reconnect, test some more, and make sure your generator is ready for the next power outage – and for whatever the beach weather hands it in between times.
And should your generator need a replacement part, your Palmer Generator technician probably has the genuine part you need on the truck.
No one else handles your business the way you do, and no one knows your home and your needs better than you do. Letting our technicians do what they do best allows you to keep going in any weather – so you can continue to do what you do best – uninterrupted.
