Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind is very important Storms are the main cause for electrical outings in our area. Now we have the peace of mind whether at home or away that our house is fully functional twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. The features and ease of operations makes this unit user friendly. The benefits far exceed the financial investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoping to help during Hurricane season. I have just had my new Generac installed. It will be a blessing not to have to pull start a generator, or run cords to keep freezer running. It come on for test run on Wednesday and shuts off automatically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely outstanding. This Generac whole house generator is a replacement and a joy to have in Houston, TX! I loved the old one, which lasted many years, and was a boon during Harvey. The new replacement tells me that you are always improving and doing a great job! Thank you so very much. The new generator is beautiful and quiet.
