Be prepared for power outages. 

A permanently installed Generac home standby generator does more than keep the lights on when the power fails; it delivers peace of mind.

How Home Standby Generators Work

Your home standby generator is installed outside your home like a central A/C unit and runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP), depending on what fuel source is available. All home standby solutions are designed to keep you safe, secure and comfortable in an outage.

Whether from a storm, equipment failure, or any number of other causes, you suddenly find yourself without electricity.

Thanks to the transfer switch technology, your backup generator can start supplying power to your home seconds after an outage begins.

Whether you’re home or not, your Generac home standby system kicks into action, and continues to power your home until utility power returns.
