In the event of a power outage, automatic standby generators go on immediately, providing you and your family uninterrupted electrical service. It will be as if the power never even went out!
Unlike a portable generator, automatic systems are located outside and are ready to start the moment an electrical outage occurs.
How Do Automatic Standby Generators Work?
The beauty of these systems is found in their simplicity. Automatic standby generators are essentially watchdogs that constantly monitor your utility voltage. As soon as the electricity fails, the generator takes over. Here’s a step-by-step look at how these generators operate:
Step 1: The automatic standby generator monitors utility voltage around the clock.
Step 2: As soon as the generator notices the electricity is interrupted, it goes to work.
Step 3: The transfer switch safely disconnects the utility line and transfers your home to generator power.
Step 4: The generator restores power within seconds.
Step 5: After the utility has been restored, the generator returns to standby mode automatically.
