Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great safety net. We purchased the 16,000 watt Generac with the hope of never having to use it. It gives us the comfort and security knowing that if local power goes out we will have power. Our entire house is powered up when the electricity goes out. We have solar panels so we needed a transfer switch installed as well so as not to cause any potential damage to our panels if and when the electricity goes out. The Generac unit is pretty compact and isn’t an eyesore at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backup generator This unit is an incredible piece of technology. I was able to have power to all of the items I needed to have working (all lighting, 3 fridges, all my computer equipment, 4 TVs, home alarm system, garage door opener, several electric base boards heaters, micro wave. Large appliances not connected were stove, washer, dryer and hot water heater. hopefully power will be restored in a couple of days. Here are a couple of tips: This generator is very heavy so be sure when you purchase it, you have it delivered to the exact spot you want it. Be sure to understand the building/ electrical/ propane code/rules for your jurisdiction before deciding where you want the unit. It will save you a lot of frustration. Be sure to budget for a qualified electrician ($1,800 to $2,000 range) and certified propane installer($1,300 to $1,400 range). You probably should have three 420 lb. propane tanks or even better a 500 gallon tank if at all possible. I could not meet code to have this one because of required distances from home an property line restrictions. You will absolutely enjoy the feeling of always having power. You will be the envy of your neighbors if there is a power outage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality The installation of our back-up generator was completed this week. Since we haven't lost power, it is hard to write a detailed review. We priced and looked into a couple of brands and the Generac seemed to be the best value, with all the features we needed. The factory trained electricians that did the installation were knowledgeable, informative and seemed to do a high quality job. We were also impressed with the sound muffling of the unit when it is running.
