Frequently Asked Questions
What is an Automatic Backup Generator?
Automatic backup generators are connected to your home’s electrical system at the circuit breaker box. If the power goes out, the generator automatically switches on and provides continuous power until electricity from the power grid is restored. Because the system is automatic, it helps protect critical systems in your home from damage.
How Much Backup Generator Power Do I Need?
Every home is different, and it is important to size your backup generator correctly. One way to estimate how large the system should be is to calculate the total starting wattage and operating wattage of the critical systems and appliances in your home. This will give you a ballpark estimate of the appropriate size. This is vital because if the generator is too small, it will result in overloading. If the whole-home generator is too large, it will deliver inefficient operation.
What Maintenance do Whole-Home Generators Require?
All whole-home generators require periodic maintenance. This will include oil and filter changes, inspections of electrical connections and testing of circuits, testing and treatment of fuel systems, and specific maintenance tasks outlined by the manufacturer.
Is a Whole-Home Generator Better than a Portable Backup Generator?
Whole-home generators have numerous advantages over portable generators. Permanently installed generators are safer and pose less risk of serious injury or fire. They also provide instant transfer from the power grid to the generator, which means you don’t have to be home when the power goes out. Further, the majority of whole-home generators are connected directly to your home’s natural gas supply which means you don’t have to worry about fuel storage and the fire/explosion risk that it presents.*
* It’s possible to select whole-home generators that use liquid propane. If you choose this option, the gas must be stored in an appropriate storage tank located at a safe distance from the home.
How Long Will a Whole-Home Power Generator Last?
A properly maintained whole-home power generator will deliver reliable operation for 20 to 40 years, depending on the manufacturer and quality of the design and construction. Other factors that influence how long a generator will last are environmental conditions and how often the generator is required to operate.
