Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of Mind Living in an area where we typically have 3-5 days per year where we are without power due to storm damage, having my Generac Guardian system with an automatic transfer switch makes my family and I feel secure knowing we will now have power during these events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Home Investment I highly recommend the 22kw Generac Generator. We experience numerous power outages each year and I love having the sense of security knowing that whether we are home during the start of the power outage or not my basement won’t be flooding from the sump pump not running and my whole house will continue to function within 12 seconds without having to do anything. Thank you Generac!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Generator This product definitely has great features and looks good sitting in your yard. This is the second one I have had and, if I can help it, will never be without one. mr. Ira Heas, who works for Generac, I stalled mine and did an excellent job!! He is very friendly and personable. I will definitely call him IF I have any problem. Generac was so wonderful to let me have my 2 year warranty. Wasn’t sure if they would since my generator had been selittinf unboxed for a year and a half. Thank you Generac for everything!!
