How Does a Home Backup Generator Work?
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.
1 Utility Power Is Lost
Perhaps it's a storm. Maybe it's an equipment failure. In any case, the electricity you depend on is suddenly gone.
2 Your Generac Generator Senses A Problem
Within seconds, your generator prepares to restore your home's power.
3 The Generator Turns On Automatically - Whether You’re Home Or Away
Within a few seconds, it is up to speed and generating electricity.
4 Your Electricity Is Restored
The automatic transfer switch sends generator power to your home. And it will continue until utility power returns.

Bill and Kasey, Your team deserves a letter of recognition for a job well done. Thank you for making everything come together to get this generator installed and running before I leave to go back out of state. My wife and I have peace of mind knowing that, in case of a power failure, she can continue normal activities. Kasey was available to answer questions and responded to calls and texts even when he was off work. Bill was available and returned phone calls when Kasey was on vacation. Kasey even checked in with me and tried to help even while he was preparing for his wedding. That is true dedication to your job. All of our contacts associated with Genset were courteous and professional. I don't know who is in upper management with your organization, but I would like to let them know that we are completely satisfied and you have an extraordinary team in Sulphur, La. P.S. Feel free to share this email with Generac. They need to know the quality of people who handle their product. Best Regards, Mike and Trisha Meyers Iowa, La. Mike Meyers Iowa,Louisiana
