How Does an Automatic Home Backup Generator Work?
The generator automatically detects a power outage and delivers backup power to your home within seconds. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’re covered – the generator will keep your power running for as long as the power is out – whether that’s for two hours or two weeks.
1. Utility Power Is Lost
Maybe it’s a storm or an equipment failure. In any case, the electricity you’re dependent on is suddenly gone.
2. Your Generator Senses a Utility Power Disruption
Within seconds, your generator prepares to restore your home’s power.
3. Your Generator Automatically Turns On
Your generator is up to speed and generating electricity.
4. Your Electricity Is Restored
The automatic transfer switch sends generator power to your home and will continue providing power until your main power source returns.
5. Utility Power Is Restored
Your generator systems detect when utility power is returned and restores utility power to your home. The system then returns the generator to standby mode.
