Frequently Asked Questions

How does a standby generator turn on?

Whole-home generators use an automatic transfer switch to turn on automatically during a power outage. This device can sense the loss of power, start the generator, and transfer your home’s power supply from the utility grid to the generator once it has powered up.

When utility power returns, the switch will return your home to the utility grid and shut the generator off. The switching process takes less than a minute, and in some models, it can occur in seconds.

What's the difference between whole-home and portable generators?

Whole-home generators tend to be significantly larger with higher power outputs than portable generators. They are installed permanently, and they feature a long-lasting fuel supply, such as a direct natural gas connection or a large propane tank.

Unlike a portable generator, which must be manually connected and started every use while being mindful of carbon monoxide dangers, whole-home generators use an automatic transfer switch that turns the generator on automatically during a power outage. Whole-home generators are generally safer, more powerful, and easier to use than portable models.

What size generator do I need?

The size of the generator you need will depend on what you intend to operate during a power outage. You’ll likely need to run the HVAC system, refrigerator, cooking appliances, and medical devices. You’ll also need to be able to charge your phone to access emergency information.

An electrician can help you determine the generator size you need. However, to determine your power needs yourself, add up the wattage of all the devices you need to power, which is usually listed on the device itself. If only the current is listed, multiply the current in amps by the voltage of the circuit, typically 120 volts, to find the wattage.

Select a generator that is about 50% larger than required to add overhead for motor startups and operate the generator at a lower load for greater fuel efficiency and for a longer service life.
