What is a Home Standby Generator?

A Champion Home standby generator gives your home a permanent source of back up power. In the event of a power outage the generator automatically starts and delivers continuous electrical power to your home. Since it is connected to your LPG or natural gas system it never needs refueling.

No matter how long your power is out, your Champion Home Standby generator is there to keep the lights on, the water hot, and your family safe.

The Cost of Outages

When you lose utility power it's not only the lights that go out. Critical hardwired systems like heating and air conditioning units stop working, food begins to spoil, security systems often fail, and sump pumps cease functioning. A power outage lasting only a few days can cost the average family over $1,200 in repairs.

How Much Does Installation Cost?

As a rough guide, a Champion Home Standby Generator installation usually costs between $2000 and $3000.

How Does it Work?

Permanent Installation

Much like an air-conditioning unit, your Champion Home Standby Generator is permanently installed in a selected location outside your home in an attractive all-weather enclosure.

Automatic Transfer Switch

All Champion Standby Home Generators come with a Champion Automatic Transfer Switch that provides the connection to your home's electrical system. The transfer switch facilitates the power transfer from the generator to your home in the event of a power outage.

Loss of Power

The transfer switch constantly monitors the flow of electrical power to your home. When an outage occurs, it automatically disengages your home from the utility, starts the generator, and automatically connects the standby generator power to your home—power is restored in seconds.

Continuous Back Up Power

Champion home standby generators run on LPG or natural gas, so they never need refueling. They will provide continuous back up power to your home for essentially any duration until the utility power has been restored.

After Power is Restored

When the utility power is restored, the transfer switch automatically disengages generator power from the home and returns your home to utility power.

Our Process

  • The first step is to contact an authorized Champion Home Standby Dealer to make a no-obligation appointment.

  • The Champion dealer will visit your home to discuss your power requirements and decide which generator best suits your needs.

  • Next your dealer will create an installation plan by reviewing the locations of your utility circuit breaker box and the location of your natural gas or LPG line to determine the proper location to install your home standby generator.

  • Once the installation plan is created, the dealer will give you a quotation for the installation cost. This added to the cost of the generator is the total cost of protecting your home with a home standby generator.

  • The generator is then delivered to your home and promptly installed by your Champion dealer. All installations are carried out by professionals and most installations are completed in one day.

  • Once installed, your Champion dealer will commission the unit and perform system checks to ensure your generator is working properly.

  • That’s it, your generator is ready to go, protecting your home and family 24/7.
