HOME BACKUP POWER. COMFORT. SECURITY. CONVENIENCE.
A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects your home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. A home backup generator delivers power directly to your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items. Now coming with FREE Mobile Link™, allowing you to monitor the status of your generator on a phone, tablet or computer from anywhere in the world

New Home Construction – An Ideal Time to Install
The new home construction process is the easiest and most affordable time to install a Generac standby generator.
When it’s installed during the wiring of the house, it allows the homeowner to save substantially on installation costs. Add these savings together with financing options and the ability to roll costs into the mortgage, and new home construction becomes the ideal time for homeowners to find value in a standby generator.

Product Innovation Keeps You Ahead of the Competition
Many competing generators need to be installed five feet away from the home, placing them deep into the yard. If installed away from doors, windows and fresh air intakes, a Generac standby generator can be installed within 18 inches of the home, unless otherwise directed by local codes. Staying out of sight and out of mind—where it belongs. This is just one example of product innovation that make a Generac generator the #1 choice among homeowners and an easier sale for you.
