Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware of false advertisement Purchased and installed a 22kW system. Happy with install and overall product quality. However, part of my decision to purchase the unit was an advertisement on television promoting a 7 year full parts and labor warranty. This proved to be false. Very disappointed in Generac for not honoring their advertisement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind that our Generac brings is priceless! Having to listen to our neighbors generator kick on immediately after our neighborhood has power lost and knowing they are sitting in their home comfortably (with their a/c running) while we are left with no electric, no a/c (in Florida) we finally decided to get our automatic standby generator installed. Best. Decision. Ever! The process from beginning to end was effortless. We purchased our Generac generator from Holly Electric (Donald and Crystal were awesome!) and they handled everything! The installers Jason II, Eli, and Johnny were professional and friendly and not only installed our generator but cleaned up after themselves including making sure the generator was wiped down free of handprints (Thanks Jason!) a small gesture that showed me he takes pride in his work! I now have peace of mind especially when it comes to the possibility of power loss during hurricane season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product, well worth the expense. Our installer (Power Tech) was outstanding to work with. They made all the arrangements with the power company, gas company and inspectors. They ever brought some other electrical appliances up to current code. I would recommend them and the Generac Generator to anyone interested in having this type of insurance for your home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our new generator Installment was not difficult. Features are well defined. Manual not hard to read but does require someone who is knowledgeable in the electrical field, not a novice. Price was very reasonable. power went out 3 times while we were waiting for it to get hooked up. we were glad then that we had purchased this unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended by a friend Our electric supplier has been unreliable for the 39 years that we have lived in our home. Finally decided to purchase an automatic generator. Have not had the chance to use it, since it was installed, but now have the peace of mind that if our electric does go off in the future, we have the generator to power our all electric home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install, works great Installed 22kw Generac 4 years ago. 1st two years no power outages, generator only ran in exercise mode. 3rd year numerous power outages, generator worked without a flaw. Powered entire house, neighbors stopped and looked at generator and the power it was generating. Two neighbors have since bought the same unit. Generac makes a good product that lives up to it advertisement.
