Refurbished generators can be as reliable as new units are when they are refurbished properly because all of the necessary internal parts are replaced, states the Gen-Tech Inc. website. During the refurbishing process, the units are typically fully cleaned, re-calibrated and tested before leaving the factory.
Refurbished generators are typically more cost effective than new generators, according to Gen-Tech Inc. Many of the organizations that offer refurbishing services utilize technicians who are trained by the manufacturer, and the replacement parts are usually factory original so that the refurbished units have the same quality of performance as new units do. Before purchasing a new generator, customers can receive a quote to refurbish their existing units.
