Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality and Excellent features The woman owned company/dealer installed a Generac 14KW Guardian with WiFi and Surge Breaker. The install team were very knowledgable and friendly. They demonstrated great attention to detail and ensured the install was done correctly. I live in a high wind area, so having the generator provides peace of mind. My Dad who was in the electrical wholesale business for over 66 years swears by Generac for the quality of their product and their customer service. I've already referred several friends to the dealer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Generac was a wonderful educational experience. A 3-man crew came to install a 14kW 200amp Generac Model 7225. The work of the crew was fascinating as I followed how each step of the installation was done in an orderly manner. There was stone decor around the home that the crew had to remove in order to access the main power as well as an area for the slab foundation to support the Generac. Once the outside work was done in these areas, the stones were replaced as though nothing was ever disturbed. Downstairs, the electrical cord from the Generac to the Transfer Switch was neatly installed along with the Transfer Switch Box and it's wiring set up. When everything was installed and checked over, the technician explained how the Backup System will work in the event of a power outage. He demonstrated the System by shutting off the main circuit as the lights went out, but within in few seconds we heard the Generac start up and the Transfer Switch kick in supplying power to the house as the lights came back on! After explaining what happened, the tech switched the main circuit back on as though the main power was restored from the electric company and we heard the click of the Transfer Switch shutting down the Generac. All this within seconds! Quite impressive in my opinion!! Thank you, Generac and the professional crew doing a beautiful job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emphasis on feature and piece of mind Our permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects our home automatically. It runs on natural gas and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. Our home backup generator delivers power directly to our house’s electrical system, backing up our entire home. No more sitting in the cold or not being able to live comfortably when when there is a power outage. We where please with the professional technicians that set up our system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent battery-run standby generator From the estimate to the conclusion of installation, this project was excellent. Mr. Buchanan gave us a very reasonable estimate for the size and quality of the generator installed. The men who installed the generator, set-up and wi-fi connection did a terrific job, were very pleasant, cleaned up nicely, helped me connect my phone to the Mobil Link app. We couldn't have asked for a better team. Thank you so much for your hard work!
