Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product We had Generac backup generator installed on our previous home in November of 2018.We just had another Generac standby generator installed again in November 2019 in our new home that’s how much we love our generac generator could not go with out it.Performed the scheduled weekly exercise.The generator started shortly after the outage began and ran smoothly for the duration no issues at all.The well,furnace,refrigerator, and lights functioned like it was supposed to and we were even able to access to the internet to report the power outage. The overall perfomance of this generator during the power outage makes me very confident and have a peace of mind to have 2 generac generators installed in 2 different homes that’s how confident we are in the generator could not go with out.I would definitely recommend the generac generator to everyone you will have a peace of mind knowing you will have power and not left in the cold or freezing pipes and no heat etc.. The best decision ever made!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality! This Generac backup generator was installed in June and performed the scheduled weekly exercise but we had no real basis of assessment until the end of October during a 12-hour outage. The generator started shortly after the outage began and ran smoothly for the duration. The furnace, well, sump pump, refrigerator, and lights functioned as usual, and we were even able to access to the internet to report the power outage. The overall perfomance of this generator during the power outage makes me very confident in General quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a relief We researched a number of different options and Generac's solution exceeded all our needs. When we had questions the support people were there with answers. We just received our first monthly email that the testing went fine and it's ready to go. With all the fires here in California it's good to know that should the power be shut off, as it has been each previous year, that there is no more need to drag out the old generator with all its peculiarities. Also, gives me piece of mind that when I'm gone my wife doesn't have to try to deal with anything - the power just magically comes back on. Very nice solution and pretty stylish as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our New Generac. I have fully researched the Generac generator brand, I have found it to be the best around. They finished the install , the techs walked me through the operation and what they did for install. They tested it they did the mobile link install and all I had to do was watch learn and listen. Our house is now protected from outages and we have a new sense of security. I would recommend a Generac generator to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind! With Climate change on our doorstep, weather has been getting quite unpredictable. Ice storms, tornadoes and rain flooding make back-up power essential. Especially tue for seniors with medical challenges and devices. This generator, powered by natural-gas, delivers peace of mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product highly recommended The principal reason for purchasing a full home generator, the 16KW, is for peace of mind. We should have done it years ago. We were extremely pleased with the contractor, Entire Home Generator Inc, of Oxford, CT. They conducted themselves in a professional manner and were very neat.
