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.

From the initial sales meeting through installation and final inspection by the local code official, Trademark Electric did a great job. The salesperson was friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable about Generac products and helped us pick the perfect whole house generator solution. The two technicians were just great. They called ahead on the installation date, arrived on time, then quickly set to installing the generator and associated hardware. They were very exacting and did a superb job. The installation looks great. The office staff was extremely responsive, answering my every phone call and email promptly and professionally. They coordinated all the details (permits, propane installation, initial start up and final inspection). Overall a great job and I would highly recommend Trademark Electric. Dana / The Villiages
