How does a generator keep your family secure?
Standby generators have an automatic transfer switch to monitor utility power and detect when power service has been interrupted. When a power failure hits Maine, the automatic transfer switch turns the generator on and supplies the necessary power- whether you’re home or not – and automatically shuts off the standby generator when power is restored. Every week, a Generac generator starts itself for a brief test run, ensuring that all components are always prepared to take over power, at a moment’s notice. You can be confident of your standby generator’s readiness if a Maine ice storm knocks out your power.
What will a standby or backup generator do for you?
During a Maine storm or power failure, a backup generator allows you to continue using essential appliances such as heaters and refrigerators, as well as lights, computers and other critical items. A standby generator is powered by your natural gas or liquid propane gas supply, so run time is not limited by the size of a gasoline or diesel fuel tank, unlike a portable generator. Standby generators automatically power your home or business during a power outage without lifting a finger. No refueling. No extension cords.
