How It Works

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 in two hours or two weeks.

Home Backup Generators: What Do I Need to Know?

We know a home backup generator is a significant investment. Here’s what you need to know to make an informed decision about your Generac home backup generator purchase.

Generac has an online sizing calculator to help determine the right home backup generator for your unique needs. However, the best way is to work with one of Generac’s 5000 trusted dealers. They’ll help you select the right generator and provide a free, on-site assessment.

Installing a home backup generator is an exciting time. Your installer will prepare the installation site outside your home, place the generator, run the natural gas or LP fuel line, install the transfer switch, and complete all the necessary electrical connections. They’ll also make sure your backup generator runs properly and is ready for its first power outage.

Generac home backup generators start at $1,949–the most cost-effective on the market. Installation costs vary by system size, installation considerations, and local building codes. We recommend getting a free, on-site assessment from a Generac dealer near you.
