Home Backup Generators


How Does a Home Backup Generator Work?

A Generac® home backup generator senses a power outage, turns on automatically, and delivers backup power to your home. It will run until utility power returns – whether that’s two hours or two weeks.

Step One

1.) Utility Power Is Lost

Perhaps it’s a storm. Maybe it’s an equipment failure. In any case, the electricity you depend on is suddenly gone.

Step Two

2.) Your Generac® Generator Senses A Problem

Within seconds, your generator prepares to restore your home’s power.

Step 3

3.) The Generator Turns On Automatically – Whether You’re Home Or Away

Within a few seconds, it is up to speed and generating electricity.

Step 4

4.) Your Electricity Is Restored

The automatic transfer switch sends generator power to your home. And it will continue until utility power returns.
