The #1 Selling Brand of Home Backup Generators
Generac created the home backup generator category. Today, Generac generators are preferred by 7 out of every 10 homeowners who invest in home backup power. Founded in 1959, Generac was the first to engineer affordable home standby generators, and is now the #1 manufacturer of home backup generators. Generac manufactures the widest range of power products in the marketplace including portable, residential, commercial and industrial generators — designed and built for a variety of industries and the most demanding environments.
Home backup power. Comfort. Security. Convenience.
A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects your home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. A home backup generator delivers power directly to your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items.
How it works
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. Utility power is lost – perhaps it’s a storm or maybe it’s an equipment failure — and the electricity you depend on is suddenly gone. Your Generac generator senses a problem. Within seconds, your generator prepares to restore your home’s power.
The generator turns on – automatically – whether you’re home or away. Within a few seconds, it is up to speed and generating electricity. Your electricity is restored. The automatic transfer switch sends generator power right to your home’s electrical panel. And it will continue until utility power returns.
