Honeywell and Generac Generators Are Great Options

For some of the best home generators available today, we recommend models from Honeywell and Generac. They offer instant access to reliable power for some or all of your home in the event of an outage. For example, a Honeywell automatic standby generator can be designed for essential circuits like your utilities, managed whole-house or complete whole-house coverage. Whatever your power needs are, there’s a generator for you.

Generac generators are popular for their industry-leading reliability, due in part to their G-force engine. This engine can handle intense use while requiring less maintenance than similar models. When properly sized for your home’s electrical needs, it’s a fantastic option.

These generators offer 24/7 customer support in case your standby generator encounters an unexpected problem. These trained, knowledgeable experts will be happy to answer questions and help however they can. This additional layer of protection ensures you always have access to the support you deserve.

How Does a Backup Generator Work?

Your generator is designed to recognize when the power to your home has been disrupted. This includes more situations than just severe weather. For example, maybe nearby construction work has damaged power lines or an unexpected surge has overloaded the electrical grid. Whatever the reason, a generator responds immediately to limit the amount of time your home is left without power.

Once a disruption is detected, the generator automatically starts running, using an automatic transfer switch to deliver the generator’s power to the rest of your home. It will continue to do so for as long as the main power supply is down. As soon as power is restored, your generator detects the change and switches back to standby mode.

Newer home generators, like models from Generac and Honeywell, are packed with modern features designed for convenience and safety. With Wi-Fi connectivity, you can monitor your generator remotely from your smartphone, tablet or PC. Modern generators can also test themselves periodically to ensure they’re ready when needed.
