How does a Standby Backup Generator work?
Backup Generators run on either Propane or Natural Gas and are energy efficient and completely automated. Within seconds of a power failure, the generator will switch on providing your home with basic electrical power (see chart below) and switches off automatically once utilities have been restored. A complete electrical inspection of your home is recommended as part of your choice of backup generator.
There is no manual operation required and you won’t have to run outside to pull-start the generator. You can even monitor the status of your generator from anywhere using your smart phone or tablet.
In addition, Generators automatically “EXERCISE” themselves every week, starting and stopping to ensure it’s ready for the next power outage. This is done without any interruption to the home’s power.
