Preparing for Hurricane Season in Virginia Beach

share

It’s almost hurricane season in Virginia Beach. How prepared is your home or business?

In the Virginia Beach area, hurricane season typically runs from June through November, with most storms occurring in the August and September months. While there are many devastating side effects of hurricanes, one of the most inconvenient ones is power loss.

For many businesses and homeowners, it’s essential to not lose power. The best way to protect your home or business against power loss during a hurricane is to install a generator.

If you already have a generator, you need to make sure it works when you need it. So if you haven’t had your generator maintenance yet this year, now’s the time, before hurricane season is upon us!

Choosing a Generator

At American Mechanical, we sell and install both standby and portable generators by Generac, which we believe are the most efficient generators in the industry. We’ll also service and install all makes and models of generators, whether they were sold by us or not.

We can help you choose the right generator based on your home or commercial space needs.

The Importance of Generator Maintenance

It kind of defeats the purpose of having a generator if it doesn’t work when your power fails! Scheduling preventative generator maintenance is key to ensuring that your generator will perform when you need it the most.

When you schedule generator maintenance in Virginia Beach with American Mechanical, we’ll perform a thorough check of the entire generator system to identify small problems before they become expensive ones. This will help preserve the life of your generator—ensuring it lasts for hurricane seasons to come!

In addition, we’ll also charge or replace your generator battery if needed. Without a properly charged battery your generator will not start. We have documented that generators older than three years often fail to respond due to battery failure. Therefore, we recommend replacing any battery that is more than three years old. American Mechanical, Inc. also offers battery replacement at the time of annual maintenance on generators up to 45KW. This includes the battery installation and a check of the charging system during your maintenance visit.
