Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We LOVE our new whole house generator. I have oxygen machines that require electricity to charge. It gives us peace of mind to have the generator in event of power failure. We have had one power shortage since installation. It came on promptly, powered our house and used very little gas to run for about 4-5 hours. It is great! Also increases the value of our home. Love it and am so glad we purchased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product! I had a 22kW Generator installed, model: 7043-11. During the simulated power outage the generator come on after 5-6 seconds. We had our first schedule test run last Saturday afternoon and it ran perfectly. I feel confident that we will be protected during a storm. This model also comes with built in wifi and mobile link features!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is Good When the product starts failing, then the customer support does also. Haven't had any issues with it, then the trickle charger quit working. Can't seem to get any help with the product from the installer, nor the Generac customer support. I contacted the dealer who Generac supports, and haven't heard from them either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New 22kw Gaurdian We just had our generac installed by Home Backup Systems and the installation process was great. So far everything has gone smoothly with the generator and it has worked well with our power outage test and the exercises.
