What is a Whole Home Generator and How Does it Work?

A whole-home generator is a standby generator that provides backup power during an electrical outage. Unlike portable generators, which need to be manually started and connected to individual appliances, standby generators are permanently installed and automatically activate when the power goes out. 

They are connected to the home’s electrical system through an automatic transfer switch, which ensures a seamless transition from the power grid to the generator. Whole-home generators are powered by either liquid propane or natural gas. They are equipped with sensors that detect power outages and automatically start the generator within seconds. 

Once the power is restored, the generator shuts off and switches back to the power grid. This uninterrupted power supply ensures that your home remains operational during outages, keeping your lights on, appliances running, and essential systems, such as heating and cooling, functioning.

What Are the Advantages of a Whole Home Generator Over a Portable Generator?

Whole home generators offer several advantages over portable generators, making them a preferred choice for homeowners in Grants Pass, Medford, and all of Southern Oregon.

Whole home generators are permanently installed, eliminating the need for manual setup during a power outage. They are connected directly to your home’s electrical panel to create a seamless transition to backup power without any effort on your part.

Whole home generators are powered by natural gas or liquid propane, which means they have a continuous fuel supply. Natural gas and liquid propane are readily available through your home’s utility lines, ensuring a reliable fuel source for your whole home generator.

Whole home generators are designed to power your entire home, whereas portable generators are limited in their capacity and can only power a few appliances at a time. With a standby generator, you can continue using all your essential systems, such as heating, cooling, lights, and appliances, during a power outage.
