Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for great price Great looking product. Installation was quick and without much difficulty. Looks great in its location and does not take away from the house features in the back yard. Glad it is installed as we are in our hurricane season. Our portable generator was not going to cut it as we need whole house operation due to our age and medical conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent from selection thru first trial run Ordered 22k Guardian w/switch, pad & battery July 6. Order shipped the 9th and delivered curbside the 13th. Arranged our own 500 propane tank including placement of Generac and gas connection. Had an electrician complete the transfer switch wiring. All tests performed perfectly. Company support during the activation process was very efficient. Could not ask for a better overall experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! A+ My 22K Guardian was installed just last week. I have already had a chance to witness it's seamless functioning as we had a brief power outage yesterday morning! Incredible! The unit worked exactly as advertised and demonstrated at installation. This Generac is going to provide a wonderful peace of mind as hurricane season rears its ugly head! I must put a plug in for 1Stop Generator shop. 110% satisfied with this company. Every individual from sales, to installation, to billing, has been exceedingly friendly and helpful. A first class operation all the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My full installation was completed today Jul 22nd, and everything functioned properly. The generac system started when the powered was disconnected and was tested twice. I had questions about the WIFI setup and called the support number for help and Jeff, from Generac support, walked me through all the steps and answered all my questions. Great customer support that is friendly and knowledgeable. We now have the peace of mind that when a power outage occurs, even for days, we will have total house power backup.
