Standby Generator FAQs
What is an automatic backup generator?
An automatic standby generator is a backup electrical system that supplies adequate power to your home’s breaker box (all on its own) within seconds of a power outage. Once your home’s utilities are restored, the generator shuts itself off automatically until the next power outage occurs.
Why should I buy an automatic generator over a portable one?
Automatic standby generators offer many benefits over portable one, including:
- They are recommended by the American Red Cross as a safer option for your home than portable generators.
- With an automatic standby generator properly installed outdoors, your home is shielded from deadly carbon monoxide poisoning, which is a much greater risk with portable units.
- Running a generator system off of your home’s natural gas fuel supply is much less expensive than gasoline for a portable unit and it doesn’t need to be refilled regularly.
- Standby generators remain set up and ready for action at all times. So when a power outage occurs you receive backup power within seconds and don’t have to worry about having fuel and dragging out a portable unit to set up.
- Standby automatic generators do not need to be monitored during power outages, nor do you need to be home for the system to work. Standby generators simply power themselves on in the event of an outage and turn back off when the utility power returns.
Why do I need a whole home generator?
Standby generators offer valuable peace of mind and convenience in times of crisis or power outages.
With a properly sized standby generator, suffering through power outages in discomfort and frustration become a thing of the past. A standby generator will not only save your home from losing frozen or refrigerated goods due to loss of power but also keep your family comfortable and fully sustained until the utilities come back on.
What is the difference between an automatic air-cooled generator and an automatic liquid-cooled generator?
The difference between an automatic air-cooled generator and an automatic liquid-cooled generator is the engine. Air-cooled generator engines use fans to cool down the system, whereas a liquid-cooled generator uses an inclosed radiator to cool the system, similar to an automobile.
What is the life expectancy of a Generac generator?
Generac generators are designed to provide 3,000 hours of use. With optimal maintenance intervals and excellent care, an automatic standby Generac generator can last up to 30 years.
How do I choose the correct size generator for my home?
Can I install the generator myself?
Yes, however, it is highly recommended that your standby generator be installed by a certified dealer’s highly trained technicians.
Do generators need to be maintained?
Yes, generators do require periodic maintenance (such as oil and filter changes) to ensure optimal performance. It’s best to get your generator serviced once every six months by an authorized dealer.
What does it mean when my generator’s yellow light comes on?
When the yellow LED light on your standby generator comes on, it is simply reminding you to perform a service check/maintenance. General maintenance may include oil and filter inspections/replacements or sparkplug inspections/replacements.
If I have a problem with my generator, who do I call?
If you are experiencing problems with your automatic standby generator, call your local independent Generac dealer (Cruz Air & Electric) to perform maintenance or repairs.
What happens if my generator gets overloaded?
Generac generators come equipped with overload protection. If an overload were to occur, the generator’s circuit breaker will trip and disconnect. Just correct the overload and reset the breaker in the generator.
Do generators protect against electrical surges?
No, Generac generators do not provide surge protection on their own.
