How do generators work in homes?

A generator that works for a home is not actually located in the home, but outside where any toxic fumes can escape and not harm residents. The unit works off of natural or petroleum gas to provide power to your home during an electrical power outage. The generator is attached to your home’s electrical panel and will power certain breakers attached to essential appliances.
