How Does a Backup Generator Work?

Backup Generator 101

Power outages are unpredictable and they can be highly disruptive to your daily life. These blackouts may last only a few hours, but in some cases they can last for days on end. By installing a standby generator, you can simply avoid the inconvenience of a prolonged power outage altogether. Only seconds after a power failure, the generator will detect the problem and automatically begin working.

The generator can even be sized to power your entire home, including all lighting, heating, and appliances. However, many homeowners choose to install a smaller generator that is capable of powering a few select circuits that are essential to their daily lives. Additionally, with a natural gas generator, you can avoid the hassle of refueling by connecting the unit directly to the municipal gas line.
