Peace of mind for them. Profits for you.

Electricity is an essential part of the home whether it’s running life-saving equipment, protecting your property, or allowing for comfort features. Most homeowners can’t imagine living more than a short time without it. Many homeowners are choosing to invest in a whole house backup generator for peace of mind and safety.  

The Opportunity

Generac’s proprietary, best-in-the-industry market-demand analytics are showing that demand is high, and the power generation business continues to be healthy.  

  • Consumer inquiries are up year-over-year
  • Consumer demand is at some of the highest levels seen in the last 12 months
  • Generator activations are up year-over-year
  • Web traffic on is up 20% year-over-year

While some rely on portable generators to hold them over, the truth is that they can become deadly if improperly installed or operated. Improper use, a generator placed in the living area, basement, or inside an attached garage or shed, accounts for a significant number of fatalities due to carbon monoxide poisoning and fire. Most fatalities occur in the winter months.

Why Generac

Generac created the home backup generator category. Today, Generac generators are preferred by 8 out of every 10 homeowners who invest in home backup power.

A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects the home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. A home backup generator delivers power directly to the home’s electrical system, backing up the entire home or just the most essential items.

Aftermarket or new construction

Whether you’re installing a Generac system to an existing home or installing it during new construction, backup generators are more than a safety net.  According to Consumer Reports, a whole-house generator properly installed by licensed and certified electricians could raise a home's value by 3% to 5%.  Studies have also shown that homes with a backup generator have an edge when selling against those without.
