An average home may use more than a hundred electrical appliances and devices to provide convenience, comfort and security. It is, therefore, essential that you install a backup home generator to prepare for a power outage. A standby residential generator has major advantages over a portable generators – automatic start, permanent fixture, more power, cleaner fuel (natural gas or propane), low running costs and all-weather operation. Standby power systems start automatically within seconds after a home loses utility electricity and ensures a continuous electrical supply.
A Transfer Switch immediately senses when power is interrupted and transfers power generation to generator. It also senses when power is restored and transfers the load back to the utility source and signals the generator to shut down. The power generator is installed outdoors and linked directly to home’s permanent fuel supply.

A residential standby generating system typically has three basic elements: a generator, a transfer switch and a service-entrance breaker.

Note: You should not attempt to specify and install a power system on your own. Electrical connections must be made and fuel systems installed by qualified and licensed personnel. Improper installations present hazards, which can result in personal injury or property damage. Please contact a licensed residential electrician and your local natural gas or propane supplier for these services. In all cases, you should consult the local generator sales representative at Cummins Power Systems to help you properly evaluate your needs and specify the right equipment.
