Generac Backup Generators

Generac Backup Generators for Home and Business

A home standby generator is a stand alone device that provides an alternate source of electricity (off the grid) during a power outage. During emergencies, inclement weather or natural disasters it allows you to continue using essential appliances such as air conditioners, heaters, refrigerators, as well as lights. Without too much technical speak, an electric generator is a device that converts mechanical energy into electric energy. The AC power generators for home use utilize small engines to produce the mechanical energy. Since such a system includes an engine and a generator mounted together, a technical term for this appliance is an engine-generator or genset.

Home generators can be stationary or portable. They run on a variety of fuels such as gasoline, diesel, natural gas (NG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). Portable generators are an excellent choice for short-term emergencies. We are an authorized dealer and installer of Generac Generators. Generac provides many different sizes and capacities suitable for a variety of different needs.

Watch the Generac video below to see how a Generac home generator will provide safety, comfort and security to your family during times of power outages and unexpected emergencies.


Though portable generators are prevalent, they are not suitable for long-term power backups (beyond 24hrs.) because gas pumps at area gas stations may not work or be a reliable source of fuel during a wide spread blackout. For a long term emergency consider standby sets. They can provide continuous power because they are hooked up to an external fuel source, such as natural gas line. Some portable devices can also be fueled from an external source and can therefore provide extended run time. The main differences between them and stationary sources are in their connection and activation.

With today’s reliance on computer applications and data storage devices, the role that a standby generator can play becomes more essential if your livelihood depends on these technologies. Therefore you will find it a mandatory part of every corporation and thriving business to have such a device in place.

WARNING: Do-It-Yourself (DIY) installations of transfer systems are absolutely discouraged. Any transfer switch, a key component of a proper generator installation, should be always installed by a licensed electrician ONLY. An improperly installed transfer switch is a safety hazard to you an your family and can also damage your generator when the power is restored. Backfeed from your generator into the utility system could electrocute your neighbors or utility personnel repairing the outage.
