Why 7 Out of 10 Homeowners Prefer Generac Generators for Backup Power

Dealing with a power outage is a major hassle when you have no form of backup power in your home. You may have no idea of when the power will be restored to your home, and candles and flashlights are not enough to help you go on with your daily routine. Some homeowners have to find alternative shelter in order to have AC or heating, and all of the extra money spent on recovering from an outage can really add up. The best solution we can think of is a home generator, and Generac is the most trusted brand in the country.


Generac has a number of whole-house systems and portable options for your backup power needs. You can choose a portable generator for outdoor activities and to power a couple of important systems in your home when the power goes out. But we often recommend automatic whole-house generators, which turn on automatically when you lose electricity, using natural gas to restore power in seconds.

Easy to Use

With an automatic standby generator from Generac, you don’t even have to lift a finger when your lights turn off. The system senses when there is no longer an electrical current and switches over to natural gas quickly. There are no extension cords coming into your windows that you have to deal with, nor do you have to worry about running out of oil.


With over 50 years of experience in power generation, you can trust Generac to design a product that holds up to your standards. They use the latest technology to see that your system fails infrequently, and there are dealers in many areas to help you if yours does experience issues. Most systems have a self-test feature, and you may even be able to use remote monitoring to access information about your system from afar via your smartphone.
