Generac is the only manufacturer that offers a 22kW air cooled home standby generator . This unit is unlike any home standby currently available and is far below the price of a comparable liquid cooled model.

At 22kW, model 7043 is the largest air-cooled generator on the market. This model is equipped with a 5 year warranty, and has all of the features and functionality that customers have come to expect from the number one standby generator manufacturer. Generac, through strategy and... more

Hurricane Matthew Is Foiled!
We installed the 22kw Generac whole house generator in August 2015. It runs itself for 5 minutes every 2 weeks, and even tells us when is time to check the battery!

Peace Of Mind
We have had our Generac 22w for over a year and it has been a blessing. The area has had several power outages due to bad weather over the time we have had our new home and each time it has performed flawlessly. I had considered a PTO generator but after our Groundhog Day blizzard, there was NO way I could have gotten the tractor over to the power pole. I highly recommend this generator,NO REGRETS.
