Generator repair or purchasing a new generator is a dilemma for many people who found out that their generator had broken down and is not already in a working condition. Unfortunately, it could be kind of difficult to decide whether it would be better to repair your generator or it would be much more appropriate to buy a new one.
The problem is that it depends on too many factors. For example, those could be the brand of the generator that broke down, the reason why the generator is not working and even what the generator had been used for. As you can probably realize, it is not a question which could be answered just by saying “Yes” or saying “No”. But what could happen if you make the wrong decision?
Okay, let’s say you decide to buy a new generator instead of choosing the generator repair. That could be kind of stupid thing to do if the repair is really possible and would not cost you a lot of money. If you had decided to repair the generator, you would have spent less. However, you may choose that option but it could turn out to be wrong also. Let’s say you decide to choose the generator repair instead of purchasing a new one. However, the problem could be so serious that you would spend nearly as much as you would have spent if you had purchased a new generator. Furthermore, you should not forget that once a generator has been repaired, the risk of problems in future increases considerably.
Hopefully, you have figured it out that the dilemma is really hard-to-solve. However, if you have decided on repairing your generator instead purchasing a new one, there are a few tips which may come in useful. The first one is to always entrust only professionals; using the service of the problematic generator’s brand staff is recommendable since they are considered to be the people who are most knowledgeable about the construction of the generator. Another thing you need to pay attention to is how much it would cost you to have the problem solved. What all experts recommend is that you agree the service of the generator repair only if you will have to spend 25% (or less) of the generator’s price on the market. For example, if the generator costs $1.000 you should agree on the generator repair only if the service cost is $250 or less. If it’s more, just go up to some other service providers or change your mind and get a brand new generator.
Most people are aware of what electricians do for a living, or at least we have a vague idea. But did you know that electricians are also required on oil rigs? Needless to say this is a very different job from the type you would do if you were working...
