What is a Whole-House Standby Generator?
Generators come in two main types: portable and standby.
- Portable generators are gasoline-powered and must be manually started and connected to your home’s electrical system when needed.
- Standby generators are permanently connected to your home’s electrical system and run on natural gas or propane. They can automatically start up when the power goes out, providing continuous power to your home.

How Does a Standby Generator Work?
A whole-house generator is essential for providing reliable power during a power outage. All generators require a fuel source, whether natural gas or propane, and a powerful engine starts automatically when the transfer switch detects an outage. The generator then produces energy to rotate the rotor shaft, creating electrical power.
Our expert of whole-house generator installers will connect the generator to a transfer switch that is integrated with your electrical system to provide reliable backup power. Finally, the generator controller monitors performance, detects problems, and allows users to change settings.
Benefits of Standby Generators
- Reliability: Standby generators run on natural gas or propane, so they can operate for days or weeks without refueling. They are also less likely to fail than portable generators, which are powered by gasoline and can be more prone to problems such as fuel leaks and engine breakdowns.
- Convenience: Standby generators are automatically activated when the power goes out, so you don’t have to worry about manually starting them. They can also power your entire home, including your appliances, HVAC system, and other essential electronics.
- Quiet operation: Standby generators are insulated and housed in weatherproof enclosures, which makes them much quieter than portable generators. This is important for peace of mind and comfort, especially if you live in a residential area.
- Power output: Standby generators are much more powerful than portable generators, typically ranging from 8,000 to 20,000 watts. This means they can power more appliances and devices at the same time, providing greater peace of mind during power outages.
- Comfort and safety during storms: Standby generators can help you stay comfortable and safe during storms by keeping your home’s essential systems running. This is especially important for people with medical needs or who rely on electronic devices for communication and entertainment.
Why Install a Whole-Home Standby Generator Today?
Weather-Related Power Outages are More Common & Severe
Most power outages are weather-related. As the number and severity of extreme weather events rises, so does the likelihood of a blackout lasting 24 hours or more. Some states are more vulnerable to weather-related outages. Others have such severe temperature extremes that power to control air conditioning and heating systems can be essential for comfort and safety. If you live in one of these areas, your risk to the potentially devastating effects of a power outage increase significantly.
Spoiled Food Can Be Costly
According to the FDA, perishable food items should be thrown out once your refrigerator has been without power for as little as four hours. With a standby generator, your refrigerator and freezer will never cease running, so you won’t have to worry about wasting food.
You Work from Home
If you work from home, a power outage can disrupt your business and income. A standby generator can keep your essential appliances and electronics running, so you can continue working.
Your Home Has Well Water
Without electricity, your well pump and filtration systems will quickly lose the ability to provide fresh, safe water for drinking, bathing, heating and more, to your house. A standby generator can power your well pump and filtration systems, so you’ll always have fresh, safe water.
Someone in Your Home Relies on Electrical Medial Equipment
If you or a loved one requires the assistance of a home medical device that runs on electricity, a power outage can be life-threatening. A generator can help keep those devices running, but you also will want to check with a healthcare professional for suggestions on how to weather power outages with your particular medical device.
You Drive an Electric Vehicle (EV)
An extended loss of power may leave you stranded and unable to recharged your primary mode of transportation.
Your Home is Vacant for Extended Periods of Time
If you are a “snowbird,” frequent traveler or own a seasonal home, having a generator can protect your property from outage-related emergencies — whether you’re in or out of town.
You Want to Avoid Flooding & Water Damage
If your basement has a sump pump, you know the importance of keeping your sump pump working. When groundwater levels rise, the sump pump works to drain water from the basement. If extreme storms cause a power outage, your sump pump will stop working—leading to a flooded basement. Luckily, whole-house generators keep sump pumps functioning even during power outages.
You Want to Stay Comfortable & Safe During Power Outages
Whole-home standby generators will keep your appliances running no matter the reason why your home has lost power. This means your air conditioning and heating system will operate normally to keep your family comfortable in extreme heat or cold conditions. A generator will also continue to power your home’s security system, which means greater peace of mind during troublesome times.
