What is an automatic standby generator?”

  • An automatic standby generator works just like any other generator, using a fuel source to create electricity. However, an automatic standby generator is a generator that kicks on automatically when there is an outage by using a device called an automatic transfer switch.

“What is an automatic transfer switch?”

  • An automatic transfer switch is a device that senses utility power in your home. If utility power is lost, the automatic transfer switch tells the generator to turn on and power the home. When utility power has returned, the automatic transfer switch tells the generator to turn off and returns the home to utility power.

“What kind of fuel does an automatic standby generator use?”

  • An automatic standby generator uses primarily natural gas or liquid propane as a primary fuel source. However, larger commercial sized generators may use diesel as a primary fuel source.

“How loud is an automatic standby generator?”

  • An automatic standby generator usually operates around 67db, which you can consider to be slightly quieter than a lawnmower.

“How do I know what size generator my home needs?”

  • When sizing a generator for your home, considering each appliance that you would like backed up in the event of an outage is crucial to calculating load capacity for your generator.

“Do I need to start my generator frequently to make sure it works?”

  • It is a good idea to start the generator and let it run for 15-30 minutes either once a week or once every two weeks. However, most standby generators cycle on automatically without surging power into the home to ensure the generator is operating properly.

“Can I check the status of my generator from my phone?”

  • Generac generators are capable of being accessed through the mobile link app as a subscription based service. By checking the status of your generator remotely you can always be sure that it is ready to run in the event of an outage.
