Home Backup Generators for Larger Applications

QT Series Liquid-Cooled Generators by Generac

These revolutionary generators are exceptionally quiet, environmentally friendly and, in commercial and light industrial applications, so affordable that they often pay for themselves during a single power outage.

Clean burning, natural gas or LPV operation means fewer exhaust emissions, no diesel odor, no risk of environmental liability due to fuel spills, and no need for refueling, fuel maintenance, or expensive diesel tanks. Thanks to Generac’s exclusive Quiet-Test™ feature, the weekly self-test is more fuel efficient and as quiet as an idling car.

A Durable, Weather Resistant Protective Enclosure

The tough, textured powder-coat paint finish provides unmatched durability and weather resistance, or for additional protection that holds up in Michigan weather, all-aluminum enclosures that withstand highly corrosive environments are available on some models. UL Listed for safety and certified power ratings.

Commonly Asked Questions About Home Standby Generators

What size generator do I need?

The size of the generator you need depends on the number of appliances and equipment you want to power during an outage. A common method is to make a list of essential equipment, tally up their wattage requirements, and then select a generator that can accommodate the total. Most homeowners typically need a generator between 5,000 to 20,000 watts for home use.

How much will a generator cost me?

Costs can vary widely based on size, location, utility access, code requirements, etc. Because of these variables, we’d need to see in person each project to provide an accurate cost. We offer free estimates.

Should I purchase a standby generator or a portable generator?

Standby generators offer more power and kick in automatically during an outage. They’re more expensive but are ideal for long power outages. Portable generators are more affordable and can be moved around, but you’ll need to start them manually and they might not power your entire home.

Which fuel type should I use?

Common fuel types include gasoline, diesel, natural gas, and propane. Your choice should depend on fuel availability, storage, cost, and the generator’s intended use. For instance, while gasoline is readily available, it has a shorter shelf life than diesel. Natural gas and propane can be directly tapped from home lines, making refueling unnecessary.

Which type of generator is best?

“Best” is subjective. For long-term, hassle-free backup power, a standby generator is ideal. For occasional use or situations requiring mobility, a portable generator might be more suitable.

Where should I put my generator?

Generators should be placed outdoors due to exhaust fumes. They should be on a stable platform, away from windows or vents to prevent fumes from entering the home. Maintain clearance from combustibles and follow manufacturer recommendations.

Does my generator have to be maintained?

Yes. Like any engine-powered equipment, generators need regular maintenance, including oil changes, filter replacements, and general inspections to ensure longevity and reliability.

Can the voltage of a standby generator be adjusted?

Typically, home standby generators are designed to provide a standard voltage suitable for home appliances (usually 120/240V for residential use in the U.S.). Some larger, more advanced units might offer adjustable voltage, but adjusting without proper knowledge can be dangerous and harm appliances.

What is the amperage size of my main panel?

This will vary by home. To determine the amperage size of your main panel, check the main breaker in your electrical box. Common sizes for homes include 100, 150, and 200 amps.

Where is the best location in my home for a generator?

As mentioned earlier, generators should be placed outside to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Ideally, choose a location that’s easily accessible for maintenance, shielded from direct rain and flooding, and away from bedroom windows to minimize noise disturbances.
