Whole-home generators are designed to wait in standby mode until they are needed to save the day.

When a home experiences a power outage, the generator is automatically signaled to engage.

The generator begins providing power to your electrical panel, which then re-energizes, supplying power to the rest of your home. A whole-home generator operates automatically.

For example, when a power outage occurs there is an automatic transfer switch that detects the power loss.

Next, it sends an automated analog or digital command to the whole-home generator for start.

Finally, it transfers the electrical load or power to the whole-home generator power system.

Your whole-home generator will begin supplying power to all your household circuits.

When power to your home is restored, the automatic transfer switch returns the electrical load back to the utility and signals the standby generator to shut off.

It then returns to standby mode where it awaits the next outage.

In order to make sure there is a proper response to an outage, a standby generator runs weekly self-tests.

Most units run on diesel, natural gas, or liquid propane gas.
