How does a Standby Generator Work

A home standby generator system consists of two major components: a standby generator unit and an automatic transfer switch. The two work together with your home to ensure when power is lost, that your family is under power within a few moments, and back to living in the comforts of home. A standby generator system and automatic transfer switch are professionally installed to your home’s existing wiring. Constantly at the ready, the system senses when utility power stops flowing to your home for any reason, thus sensing a power outage. Within seconds the generator will automatically start and the automatic transfer switch seamlessly transfers your home’s selected electrical circuits and appliances to backup power. Once the generator system senses utility power is back online, your home is automatically transferred back to utility power and the standby generator is shut down until it’s needed the next time.
