Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is so efficient. I live in an area with frequent power outages. My power has been out 3 times in the last 6 months and one of those times it was out for 6 days due to a massive storm. What a great assurance to have the Generac 22 kw back up generator!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Factory Assembly Issues My Guardian 22 KW Standby Generator is deficient in the manufacturing process and Quality Control Inspection and acceptance testing. After installation by a Licensed Electrical and Generac approved installer upon initial startup and testing process the electrical Contractor was unable to get the unit to operate properly. Engine started within seconds of turning on however during the testing process numerous issues occurred resulting in a lengthy run times consuming LP fuel due to numerous electrical connections not being able to remain in place (spade type fitting being the biggest issue resulting in repeated protective covering having to be removed and again excessive time spent as well as excessive fuel burn to identify the issue and multiple locations. Recommend that these spade connections be crimped a bit more to preclude the inadvertent disconnection during shipping and or startup and test in place situations. Other than this inconvenience all went well after corrective action taken and the unit work very well. Just hoping that we will never have to use it...But it is there in case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of mind with a quality whole house backup electric Generator Accurate Power & Technology is a great company. The staff are friendly, courteous and provided status updates. Installation crew were on time and professional, keeping me abreast of progress and ensuring I knew the entire process and approved of how, where and training on unit before departing. I am very satisfied with the entire process from purchase to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Decision Ever I have now owned my Generac 22KW generator for a little over a year now and knock on wood, I've had it kick on only a few times. When it was called on it worked flawlessly and was such a comfort to know that I wasn't required to do anything on my part. Here in Alabama it's not uncommon for serious storms to happen almost any month of the year. Not having to drag out a generator, extension cords and gasoline is not something I'll ever miss. Great product.
