A standby generator is a backup electrical system that operates on natural gas or liquid propane to automatically supply power to your home’s electrical circuit breaker box within seconds of a power outage. When power returns, the generator shuts itself off.
Generators require periodic maintenance, such as oil and filter changes, to ensure maximum performance and reliable service. Scheduled maintenance kits are available, and many Generac authorized dealers offer annual maintenance contracts. We recommend service every six months by an authorized independent service dealer. Refer to your owners manual for routine maintenance procedures and schedules.
