Start Preparing for Winter!

Cold weather throughout the Twin Cities, Metro and Northern parts of Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin is nothing new. Do not wait until the last minute to start preparing for the inevitable, winter is coming!

Whether you love, hate or even just tolerate it, the winter season requires more preparation in many aspects of life. This is the time of year to service furnaces and home heating systems, put out holiday decorations, and look forward to that winter vacation at a warm sunny beach or a powder-covered ski slope. We at Midwest Electric and Generator would like to remind you to not forget about your standby generator when it comes to seasonal maintenance and preparation. Over the winter, an automatic home standby generator system will keep the furnace running through power outages and prevent your pipes (and your family) from freezing. In addition to scheduling regular maintenance, make sure of the following:

  • Keep your standby generator clear of any debris
  • Make sure ice and snow does not build up around the generator unit
  • Schedule your annual maintenance appointment with Midwest Electric and Generator
    • Many service options available to meet your needs and budget!
  • Install Cold Weather Kit (If you did not already have one installed at the time of purchase)
    • GOOD NEWS! If you had Midwest Electric and Generator sell or install your generator unit, we have you covered! Cold Weather Kits are installed every time!
    • A cold weather kit for your backup standby generator unit includes a battery warmer, oil heater, and thermostat.

Midwest Electric and Generator’s team of factory certified and trained technicians will make sure your standby generator system is up and running for the season ahead.
