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.

You installed our total home generator system October of 2011. Your installation process was professional as well as friendly. Being new to having a Generac generator run our home when power fails I have had to contact Mr. and Mrs. Burch serveral times with questions of one thing or another. They took the time to explain the operationas I had questions about and did not make me feel as if I was a bother to them. They are still answering questions for me with a pleasent attitude. My husband and I would recommend "Gulf Coast Generators" owned and operated by Kent and Mary Burch to anyone interested in having their home protected during a power failure.
