Keep the Power On in Any Situation

January 9, 2021

Power outages can happen for any number of reasons. If you live just outside of town or in an area that’s considered rural, it can take days or even weeks for things to return to normal. A home backup generator from Generac can keep your whole house, including your freezer, water pump, and heat source running strong. As an authorized sales dealer, we have some info on what you need to know about these amazing products and how to add one to your home.

What is a Home Backup Generator?

Generac’s Guardian home backup generators look like small, covered air-conditioning units that sit on the outside of your home. But these units aren’t designed for cooling. They’re built for power.

When your usual electrical supply goes out, a professionally installed home backup generator will automatically power on in seconds to generate and deliver electricity to your whole house. Instead of requiring gallons of gasoline and all-hours-of-the-night trips to the gas station, Guardian generators run on your existing liquid propane (LP) or natural gas supply.

Up to 24kW of Power

Guardian home standby generators come in various sizes for different size homes and needs. Most families only require 22kW of power to run everything. That kind of power can run televisions, washers and driers, a microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, air conditioner, internet router, computers, game consoles, and so much more. 24kW models are available if you’re powering a larger home packed with even more energy-hungry items.

As an authorized sales dealer, we can help you decide on the perfect Guardian generator for your home, place your order, and point you toward local, qualified installers. They can then help with outdoor placement options, local and homeowner association permit requirements and codes, as well as coordinate installation and setup.

Most Models can be Prepackaged with a 200amp Transfer Switch and Wi-Fi

The transfer switch is necessary with installation. When included with your Guardian generator, it can save you money. Plus, Guardian generators are WiFi-enabled, allowing you to see how much power you’re using and even control your generator from anywhere in the world in real-time with the no-cost Mobile LinkTM Remote Monitoring system.
