Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Choose the Right Generator for Me?
Generac has an online sizing calculator that can help you determine the right home backup generator for your unique needs. The best way, though, is to work with one of our 5000 dealers. They’ll help you select the right generator, and provide you with a free, in-home assessment.
What's Involved in Installing a Home Backup Generator?
Installing a home backup generator is an exciting time. Your installer will prepare the installation site outside your home, place the generator, run the natural gas or LP fuel line, install the transfer switch, and make all of the necessary electrical connections. And they will make sure that your backup generator runs properly, and is ready for its first power outage.
