Guardian 20 kW Generator Features and Benefits

One of the most powerful air-cooled generators on the market today, the Guardian Series 20 kW automatic home standby generator can provide whole-house backup power for many homes.

Guardian 20 kW Generator <strong>Features and Benefits</strong>

Generac OHVI® Engine
Your Guardian Series generator might have to get you through days—or weeks—without utility power. Generac’s OHVI® engine, specifically designed for generator use, provides the reliability to power through the most severe outages.

True Power™ Technology
Best-in-class power quality with less than 5% total harmonic distortion means clean, smooth operation of your sensitive electronics and appliances.

Evolution™ Controller
The next generation of intuitive controllers featuring a multilingual, two-line LCD text display with color-coded, backlit buttons.

Certified for 18" Installation to the Home
Third-party certified to NFPA standards to be installed as close as 18” from the home’s exterior wall, provided it is located away from doors, windows, and fresh-air intakes, and unless otherwise directed by local codes.

Easy Installation
When combined with a Smart Switch, re-engineered connection points, and composite mounting pad that eliminates the need for a poured concrete base (unless specified by local codes), the Guardian Series 20 kW generator is easy to install.

Rated for Operation in Areas with Low Natural Gas Pressure
In areas with low natural gas pressure, the Guardian Series 20kW generator can operate on natural gas pressures of only 3.5” of water column.

All-Weather Steel Enclosure
Our durable powder-coat finish helps make the sturdy, Galvanneal steel enclosure perfect for all weather conditions. It’s also able to withstand 150 mph winds.

Tool-less Fuel Conversion
Switch between natural gas and LP fuel in the field in a few seconds, without the need for any tools.

Quiet-Test™ Mode
All standby generators run a weekly test to ensure the system is running properly. Thanks to Quiet-Test, your Guardian Series home standby generator runs its self-test at a lower, quieter RPM than standard operation, and can be programmed to run weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

Mobile Link™ Compatible
Take advantage of Generac’s Mobile Link cellular remote monitoring system and check on your generator’s status using your computer, tablet or smartphone, even when you are away. Sold separately.

Non-cellular remote monitoring options are also available for generator monitoring from inside the home.

24/7/365 Customer Support
Power outages don’t always occur during normal working hours. That’s why Generac’s customer care call center—right here in Wisconsin—provides support any time of day or night, all year long. Generac is standing by 24/7, every minute of every day, to answer your questions.

5-year Limited Warranty

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic! What peace of mind! Power goes out. Generator comes on within 15 seconds. Entire house has electricity again! No worries. Fairly quiet. Considering what it has to do (power an entire house) it is extremely quiet. June 27, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Not one thing we don't like about it! This is our second generator I wish we would have hot a Generac the first time. I can not find one thing to complain about. Now my father and my sister have gotten one also. We look forward to many worry free years. Great job! June 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best money ever spent This system is by far and away the best investment I've ever made I would Recommend to everyone go big or go home. This thing will run a small city May 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great! Almost instant transition when the power goes out! When the power goes out, this product click right on and we have power back within seconds. Although we don't have everything connected to it, we have everything we need and forget that the power is off. No complaints! February 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Peace of mind I recently had my generator installed with the transfer switch. Luckily I haven't needed it yet, but knowing it is there feels great! January 31, 2016
