What is a Whole House Generator?

Whole house generators are designed to provide home owners with power when extended power outages or even short term power outages occur allowing us to continue or lives without to much interruption. The great part of whole house generators is they are auto transferring. This has several great advantages and here are a few that stand out. Once power is detected as being off the generator automatically starts and switches power to the circuits the customer has chosen to cover with the emergency generator panel making the transfer from utility power to generator power automatic. As power from the utility is detected the generator will switch back to utility power and the generator will shut down automatically with no assistance from the homeowner. This auto transferring is both convenient and safe for the utility workers keeping generators from back feeding the utility lines. Generac generators are designed to run a test cycle every week and if there is an issue it is detected before there is a power outage rather than during. Generac also provides the ability to be monitored via a web site (monthly fee is required to use) so if your system fails a test run you will know even when not at home (this service is not required). The test cycle is set by the homeowner so the homeowner is aware of the operation condition of the generator. When it is needed, the homeowner has peace of mind knowing it works.

Generac generators operate on natural gas or Liquid Propane. This allows a large fuel supply if extended run times are needed. As most homes have natural gas available it is generally a simple installation to get natural gas to the generator. If natural gas is not available at a site a propane tank can be provided to supply the LP needed to run the generator. This is all part of our initial free consultation giving you all the information you will need to for a complete installation.
