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.

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.

2 Your Generac Generator Senses A Problem

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

3 The Generator Turns On Automatically - Whether You’re Home Or Away

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

4 Your Electricity Is Restored

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

Putting in our generator was a positive experience from start to finish. Bruce made himself available at whatever time worked best for us. He coordinated everything, from the electrical set-up to the propane hook-up. He did it all. From the outset, Bruce listened to our needs and made recommendations that provided the right solution for our specific requirements. Bruce also followed up to make sure our new generator runs properly. I would highly recommend CT Electrical to anyone. They were consistently friendly, professional, and easy to reach. I was particularly impressed by how responsive they were. They made sure that I was completely happy with my generator. Doug T - from WoodbridgeState:CT - ConnecticutAge:55-64
