It's not just the lights that
go out.

Installing a home power backup generator is quickly becoming the new standard for homeowners. Severe weather, flooding, a deteriorating electric grid, downed power lines or a failed transformer can result in an unexpected loss of power for hours, days or weeks.


When faced with how much you have to lose during a temporary or lengthy power outage, the value of having your own power, for the life of your home, far exceeds the cost.

Here are the most common reasons for needing home power backup:

  • Running water

  • Water heater

  • AC/Heater

  • TV, Phone, Internet

  • Household lights 

  • Stove and microwave

  • Well pump and filtration systems

  • Saving the food in your refrigerator and freezer

  • Home office/working from home

  • Medical devices - Ventilators, Oxygen machines, Dialysis treatments, chair lifts, power wheelchairs, CPAP machines.

  • Digital Loss Prevention - computer files, hard drives crashing, home servers, or working in IT from home. 

  • Electric car/Hybrid 

  • Garage door opener

Automatic power when you’re not there; one less thing to worry
about while traveling or for vacant homeowners.

About Us

Generac Lightning Storm.webp

Located about 30-minutes south of Nashville
in Columbia, Tennessee:

Home Power Backup was founded on the idea that independent power will help keep families safe and secure during unexpected power outages. 


In February of 2021, Texas suffered a major power crisis which came about as a result of severe winter storms. The storms caused the worst energy infrastructure failure in Texas state history, leading to shortages of water, food and heat. More than 4.5 million homes and businesses were left without power for several days and in some cases, several weeks. 


Our family members living near San Antonio, Texas were forced to deal with record low temperatures that fell below temperatures in Anchorage, Alaska. They were without power, water and heat for weeks. They were helpless and unprepared. This event along with other state by state Power Grid issues, unpredictable weather, and an unprecedented number of power outages across the U.S., triggered us to start a company that would provide independent, backup power for homeowners.



Whether you’re looking for stationery or portable power
We have you covered.

With dozens of brands to choose from,
Home Power Backup has researched and compared companies and generators to find dependable, easy-to-use, cost-effective solutions for home power backup. 

Through our research, we couldn’t find one company
that was the best in every category. Instead, we found
three different companies that each excel in their
own specific niche.


 Founded in 1959, Generac was the first to engineer affordable home standby generators, along with the first engine developed specifically for the rigors of generator use. A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects your 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 your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items.
