choose your coverage
A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects your home automatically, delivering power directly to your home's electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items.
Essential Circuit Coverage
The generator is paired with a transfer switch containing a predetermined number of circuits based on the generator’s kW power rating. Each circuit is directly connected to a matched circuit on the home’s main circuit breaker panel, providing electricity to that specific appliance or area of the home. For example, ten circuits are supplied for the 8 kW generator. With this system, you could connect (1) lights and TV in the family room, (2) microwave and lights in the kitchen, (3) refrigerator, (4) power to the bathroom, (5) computer and home office, (6) garage door opener, (7) air conditioner, and (8) furnace.
Managed Whole House
You can get more coverage with less generator, up to whole house coverage, by pairing a smaller generator with a load shedding switch option. This creates a managed power solution where non-essential circuits are shed when the generator approaches maximum capacity. They are cycled back on when essential circuits no longer require power, so all circuits receive power at different times.
Complete Whole House
Easily cover every circuit in your home by pairing one of a larger kW unit and the proper transfer switch to provide full coverage. No circuit is ever left uncovered, so every appliance is available every minute.
