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.

APCOM Electric & Power Systems is a great place to do business with. When we were looking for a company to install a Generac Automatic Standby Generator it was suggested that we call APCOM. We are so glad that we did. When the owner came out to give us an estimate we found him to be very honest and straightforward. He also was able to answer all of our questions and had full knowledge of the units that are offered. The day our system was installed the crew was just as honest and straightforward as the owner. When the installation was done everything was cleaned up. We highly recommend this company to anyone having this type of unit installed for their home. Kat from Saginaw
