Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac has wonderful Service dealers My 22 Kw Generator was installed today and the Install went smoothly. When the service dealer went to test the generator, the trottle was a little high and needed to be replaced. Generac acted swiftly to supply the service dealer with the part and now it is humming perfectly! Thank you Generac for the people you put in front of your product! Sometimes a quality product needs to recognize the quality people that install it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind with stand by whole house generator On 5/14/18 Perucki Electric switched on my Generac 22kw whole house stand-by generator. Less than 24 hours later I was without power and had the first real test of the generator's operation. The professional and informative knowledge of the electrical contractor was proven with the seamless operation of my new generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver! I have been the proud owner of a Generac guardian series 22kW for 3 years now. As I write, my Generac is on its 26th hour of continually running after a horrible storm hit in upstate New York. Within 10 seconds it turned everything back on. Could not imagine living without this gem. Thanks Generac for giving me peace of mind!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to operate Just installed on 5/15/2018 and from the intitial call to the sales visit to the on time installation by Mark and his crew this has been an extremely pleasant experience! I can’t wait to lose power to see how well it works. It looks great and everyone has been very pleasant to deal with. We lost power for four days two weeks ago and I wish I would have started the process sooner than I did. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HIGH QUALITY PRODUCT Just had it installed today 5/15/18 and very impressed with the way it's constructed the contractor was honest and professional he accidentally delivered the wrong size generator which was a 22kw which he originally recommended a 16kw but he said 22kw is better but it cost more but he worked it out where the monthly terms would be the same I would just be paying 4 months longer after the 36 month term,He explained how everything worked.
