Our Wesson Energy professionals can walk you through these 5 steps to setting up your whole house standby generator

Step One: Size of Generator

By sizing your generator system according to your essential needs rather than your home’s square footage, you’ll choose a backup-power solution specifically geared to your basic usage requirements. We can help you determine which items in your home you want hooked up to the standby generator and thus we will determine the size you need.

Step Two: Fuel

The generator will need a source of fuel to operate, you can choose between propane or natural gas, whichever fuel you have access to. As Wesson Energy is an established propane fuel provider, we can set up your propane account if you don’t currently have on.

Step Three: The Right Product

Select the Generac product line that best meets your needs based on Step One. Need financing? We can help with that as well.

Step Four: Unit Hook Up

Your unit needs to be properly sited for installation outside the home and connected to your circuit breaker box, to enable the unit to immediately work upon any loss of power and do no harm to your electric system.

Step Five: Piece of Mind

When all is done, you can rest assured your home and property is secure and protected.

Generac is the top-selling home standby generator brand in the United States and Canada, providing automatic, hands-free backup power supply. Wesson offers four lines of Generac residential generators: Guardian, CorePower, QuietSource and EconGen. If WHEN your power ever goes out, your Generac standby generator will go on within 10 seconds of determining power loss, protecting providing 24/7 protection to you and your home.

How They Work

An automatic stand by generator is positioned outside your home, much like a central air conditioner. It is connected to your power supply and is constantly monitoring for power interruptions. As soon as it senses a power loss, it automatically notifies the transfer switch to shut off the utility power line and use the generator instead. Typically within 10 seconds your power is restored. While running, the generator uses either natural gas or propane for power. Upon restoration of your utility power, the generator switches to standby, awaiting the next outage.
