Do you find yourself in the dark at the wrong times? A permanently installed 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. Here is how Generac, one of the top brands that we install, describes how a standby generator works. Renaud Electric Heating and Cooling has certified Generac Technicians to install, service and repair your Generac generator.
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.
