Generac Guardian Series Generators

generac-home-backup-generators-new-2017-models-callout.jpgThe latest Guardian models include engineering and manufacturing improvements that make Generac Guardian the easiest installation on the market, which saves you time and money when your installer arrives. With models from 10 kilowatts to 26 kilowatts, it has never been easier to match your needs and budget with a generator that keeps your family and home safe during a power outage.

Each fully automatic home standby generator has a Generac G-Force engine, purpose built by Generac for rigorous duty of a home standby generator. G-Force engines have a fully pressurized lubrication system with an automotive-style oil filter. Low-oil shutdown protects the engine if the oil runs low and alerts the homeowner. The engine design maximizes breathing for better fuel efficiency. Generac added plateau-honed, cast-iron cylinder walls with plasma moly rings to run cooler and reduce oil consumption for a long engine life.

Generac Guardian Features

A large home with a Generac 24kW GeneratorUtility Quality Power with True Power Technology delivers best-in-class power quality equivalent or better than utility power with less than 5% total harmonic distortion to operate the most sensitive electronics, power hungry machines, or microcontroller based appliances.

Solid-State Frequency Compensated Voltage Regulation provides an almost instantaneous response to changing loads with maximum motor starting ability and regulates the voltage to ± 1 percent. The result is smooth, clean power to handle everything from computers and laptops to air conditioners, freezers, and refrigerators, the furnace and sump pump, and anything else that keeps your family and home safe and comfortable.

Fully Automatic All Weather Operation means it won’t matter if you’re at home, at work, or on a family vacation halfway around the world. The standby system detects a power outage the moment it happens, then starts the generator and switches the home onto emergency standby power—typically within just seconds after the outage occurs. The lights are back on before you can find your flashlight.

Generac 5-Year Limited Warranty. Single Source Service Response from Generac's extensive dealer network. Parts and know-how for the engine to the smallest electronic components.

Need to Know: Standby Generator Registration and Warranty

Generac’s G-Force Engine is purpose built with pressurized lubrication specifically to handle the extreme demands of a standby generator—to run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until power is restored by the utility. The G-Force Engine provides the most reliable power and requires less maintenance than any competitive engine available.

Quiet-Test Self-Test Mode runs on a regular schedule for five or twelve minutes at a lower RPM to reduce noise, which makes the Guardian Standby Generators much quieter than other brands. Lower RPM uses less fuel, which makes the generator more economical and ecologically sound. The schedule is user selectable via the controller for weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly automatic operation, another potential savings by lowering maintenance and fuel costs. 

Rhino-Coat Powder Coat Finish adds additional corrosion resistance to the aluminum body and panels for a smooth, clean look that won’t rust in harsh environments or extreme weather conditions.

State of the Art Evolution Controller with a multilingual display that allows you to track generator status and maintenance, receive alerts and status changes, monitor the battery, and in general make sure your generator is ready to run at all times.
