HOME BACKUP POWER. COMFORT. SECURITY. CONVENIENCE.
A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects your home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. A home backup generator delivers power directly to your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items.
- Automatic Operation: Don’t worry about having to be there to start and stop your Generac home backup generator. Because it does that automatically. Whether you’re home or away.
- Refueling Not Necessary: Your Generac home backup generator runs on your existing natural gas or LP fuel supply. Save the gas cans for your other outdoor power equipment.
- Power Directly to Your Home: You’ll never have to run an extension cord through a window or door again. Your Generac home backup generator safely delivers power right to your home’s electrical panel.
- The #1 Selling Brand of Home Backup Generators: Generac created the home backup generator category. Today, our generators are preferred by 7 out of every 10 homeowners who invest in home backup power.
- 24/7/365 Customer Support: Power outages aren’t a 9-to-5 thing. That’s why we’re standing by all day every day from our headquarters in Wisconsin to answer any questions you might have.
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 two hours or two weeks.
