How Are Whole House Generators Powered?

How are whole house generators powered?If you’ve ever considered having a whole house backup generator installed at your home, you may have wondered how these units stay running continuously during a blackout. While many portable units are powered by gasoline or liquid propane and need to be refilled often, a whole house generator is tied into a home’s LP or natural gas line so it can provide power for as long as needed without interruption. When an outage occurs, the unit activates automatically and powers your home, including hard-wired systems like your HVAC unit, security system, large appliances, and more.

Don’t Get Left Out in the Cold

Picture this scenario. You have relatives in town for the holidays, the temperature is below freezing, and a winter storm is headed your way. If you have a whole house backup generator installed next to your home, you can rest easy knowing everything is going to be fine. If an outage occurs, your neighbors may have to head for a hotel while your family gets to stay home in a warm, festive home.
