Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I did lots of research and Generac is the best reliable generator for home on the market today. I purchase this generator for three years now and it has never fail me since we have had outages a few times I install it. Love the idea to purchase Mobil Link with this purchase. Peace of mind. The only thing I wish Generac would do is let the customer know that it is recommended to run the generator with a load on it once or twice a month for two hours because I did not know that until I change my oil and it was almost water in the oil. The contractors do not seem to tell you this. but I love the product it is a great investment. I believe everyone in America should have this product. If you do not know you do not know the peace of mind it is to have it. I only miss 18 seconds of electricity if the power goes out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent supplier and installers We needed the peace of mind for the ability to spend time away from home and our new 11KW Generac gives us that. The crew was excellent to work with and did a great job of install and instructions. The whole process was faster than expected and the men did a great job of cleaning up when done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with our system After our historic snow storm, 9 day power outage, and needing to run basement sump pumps, we decided to replace our portable gen system with a home standby 11kw gen system from Generac. We are thrilled with the system, daily updates, and that we don't have to start the gen ourselves anymore! Balanced Electric did our install and new transfer panel...pros all the way...courteous, efficient, knowledgeable, easy to work with! We love that they also receive info on our gen so that we all stay in the loop. Highly recommend them and Generac!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent install with a great peace of mind I am very pleased with my 11kw stand alone generator. It took two days to install and the installers did a fantastic job. Generac was excellent as well. My unit had a damaged front panel. Generalc sent a replacement within a week of my installation. Thank you Generac.
