Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier Although the logistics of getting the install done, the propane delivery and setup took awhile, it was worth it. The actual activation was quick and painless and I am confident in the Generac product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value We love the peace of mind our new Generac provides! Already had one brief outage and it responded as advertised! The installers at Albrite Electric were extremely knowledgeable, courteous and professional! I highly recommend both the brand and installers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind Living along the Gulf Coast having a Genrac backup gas generator provides peace of mind should the inevitable hurricane arrive. But we also have intermittent power outages and a 2021 winter storm that kicked Texas’ butt! So having moved to a new home we were quick to call our Genrac rep and order a new generator for this home also; we installed our first a few years ago in the townhouse we previously owned. The Genrac was a good selling feature for us and important to the new homeowners also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh my gosh! I couldn’t live without one of these to back up my house. They are amazing! If you are looking for a generator I can’t recommend these enough! This is my second home purchasing a generator. When there’s a storm these make you rest at ease that you’ll not starve or freeze to death! If you’re a home owner they are a must! Please consider them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love generac products I have a 16 k generac generator that I bought in 2006. Never gave me any problems, except that the base it's all rusted. I'm going to give it to my nephew, so he could get a new base for it and install it at his house. I just bought a new one 18 k and I love it. Hopefully this one doesn't get rusty. Maybe I'm asking for too much because my 16 k it's almost 16 years old. But in general I'm very pleased with the performance. I do recommend Generac.
