WHAT IS A
STANDBY GENERATOR?
Briggs & Stratton ® Standby Generators provide automatic
backup electricity for your air conditioner, appliances,
lights, TVs or computers and give you the peace of mind
to take charge during power outages.
HOW DOES A
STANDBY GENERATOR WORK?
1
When power fails, the automatic transfer s
witch
recognizes the outage from the utility line.
2
The transfer switch signals the standby generator,
which is then “switched” on and provides backup
power to your home until power is restored.
3
When utility power is restored, the transfer
switch will again signal the generator to shut down
until it is needed again.
A Standby Generator:
•  Turns on and off automatically
•  Is connected to your home’s electrical system
•  Senses power loss within seconds of an outage
and transfers the electrical load to the generator
•  Runs on Natural Gas [NG] or Liquid Propane [LP] Gas
•  Can power select circuits or your whole house
•  Is permanently installed by licensed professionals,
such as your Authorized Briggs & Stratton

Installations must strictly comply with all applicable codes, industry standards,
laws, regulations and provided installation manual. Running engines give off
carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, poisonous gas so it is important
to keep exhaust gas away from any windows, doors, ventilation intakes or
crawl spaces. The installation manual contains specific instructions related to
generator placement in addition to NFPA 37, including the requirement that
carbon monoxide detectors must be installed and maintained in your home.

Your Authorized Briggs & Stratton ® Standby Dealer is a
great resource to help you find the perfect generator for
your home.

DOES YOUR HOME USE NATURAL GAS OR
LIQUID PROPANE GAS?
Briggs & Stratton Standby Generators provide automatic
backup power in a power outage and are permanently
installed either to a natural gas line or a liquid propane
fuel source.
WHAT IS THE SIZE, IN AMPS,
OF YOUR ELECTRICAL SERVICE?
A standby generator needs to be connected to the
appropriate automatic transfer switch to operate properly.
Transfer switches are sized by the amperage demands of
a home’s electrical service, and therefore are offered in
ranges from 50 Amps to 200 Amps. Many newer homes
include 200 Amp service to accommodate increasing
demand for electrical power.
