Generac Backup Power Service
Installing the 22kW Generac generator is very straight forward except for the battery area is very tight and was not able to use a battery blanket because the compartment for slipping the battery into is so tight.

The unit was easy to install but would like a little more room in the battery compartment to insure no freeze ups during winter months.

After I ordered the generator it arrived within a week and installing was easy with the instructions provided. After installing the start up was easy and the performance was better than expected. I was able to do the installation by myself and would highly recommend this product.

Peace Of Mind
I live in rural North Carolina near the Albemarle Sound and the Outer Banks where high winds and flooding are the norm. I'm on fairly high ground but we have to wait for the houses down stream to dry out before our power can be restored. After days without power from Irene in 2011 and tornadoes in 2014 we began to budget for a generator.

Electric generators direct had the best prices and Generac offered a free 10 year warranty so we pulled the trigger. The purchase was easy and EGD is a... more

Solid Product
Liked the appearance, professional look. Looking into control side of generator is intimidating. The hookup for the main power cables to generator is a tight fit. The housing port for the gas connection was not lined up. Electric conduit hole is for 1 1/4" should have hole for at least 1 1/2 conduit connection (easier to reduce down than cut a bigger hole). I used 2" from transfer switch then reduced to 1 1//2 at Gen and then to 1 1/4 at housing for easier pull. Control wire... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Price, Quiet
Cons: Tight quarters fon main electric hookup, Unclear that it requires 2 yellow wires on control

Generator
I've installed generators in the past and I have to say this was the smoothest install project to date. I did have a certified gas plumber connect the natural gas but I installed the generator plus electrical connections. The paper work is inside the generator cabinet so I suggest you look online to get the specifics before you order. There are several accessories that can be added so do your research before time to purchase.

My home is 3700 sq. ft. and has 2 full kitchens plus 5 ton AC and... more

Great Experience And Great Product
I live in Michigan and am away often during the winter months. We had a portable generator which worked well when we were home, but didn't do us much good if we were on the road when the power went out. I researched different generators and where to buy them and kept hearing about Electric Generators Direct. After researching I decided on the Generac Guardian Series generator.

The people at EGD were very helpful in answering my questions and soon I was helping unload my package from the... more

Everything was prompt and on time with delivery and Generator with transfer switch. In the past when ordering generators from other dealers I always had to wait 4 to 6 weeks and had to always purchase the battery for it myself from Napa , advanced , etc. Electric Generators Direct offers faster shipping and you can purchase the battery, servicing kit , etc directly from them.

Good Generater But Read The Manual
Had to rerun the gas supply line (larger diameter) but runs great. Do not assume the gas line size is right if the footage is close!!!!! Always go to the next larger size gas line.

Had it professionally installed (check with Generac's website also as PED only had one installer in my area) and everything went as advertised. We got the 200A disconnect and bought one more 200A disconnect as I had two 200 amp circuit breaker panels.

Purchased online during Generac sale, delivered in 4 days, installed the next week. I was worried about the load but with (2) 4 ton and (1) 5 ton Trane units, two refrigerators and 60% lights on.....worked like a charm!!!!!!!!!! Measured load was 60-70 amps with everything running. Very happy and recommend getting the home link. It nice to know when you away that your power was off and generator running.

My Worries & Headaches Are Over Due To My New Generac
Our subdivision is always loosing power about 6 times a year. When the electric was put in they didn't put it in a conduit therefore the shale rock in the ground is always cutting thru one or both power lines underground. This has been a nightmare for me for 15 yrs. Finally I will have peace of mind and won't have to worry about future power outages or bad storms cutting the power.

Every year more and more of my neighbors are buying Generac generators. After they see mine I am sure more... more

Great Unit For A Good Price
I ordered it on a Monday they delivered it on Thursday. The transfer switch came with it. It's installed now I don't have natural gas had to opt for a 500 gal propane tank this is all for just in case. We have been without power for a week three separate times, so no more portable genny. With cords all over the house especially in the winter.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Price, Easy To Use
Cons: Only for just in case, Propane tanks initial start up costly

Stress Level Reduced! Awesome Generator!
Generator arrived on schedule with no damage. Installation went smooth. Very nice appearance and reasonably quiet. Have had no outages since installed but it test runs biweekly. It sounds like a big Harley when running. In south Mississippi after Katrina we we were without power and water for 21 days. Actual temperature was 105 degrees...it was miserable. All I had was a 4000 watt homemade generator built from an old Sears alternator and a 5.5 Briggs engine.

No Longer Have Any Fear For Loss Of Power
Electric generators Direct is a great company to do business with. They did everything they said they would . They also provided me with a list of local installers, and that was awesome. It's up and running, and it purrs like a kitten. The entire process with them was great. No one could ask for anything more. My appreciation exceeded my expectation. Believe me when I say, they are there for you...

I purchased this generator in Jul 2015 and had it installed the first week in Aug 2015. Since then it has worked flawlessly - We've lost power 4 or 5 times and the generator has run for as short as 10 minutes to as long as 5+ hours fully loaded. No complaints at all. I'm about to do its first yearly schedule maintenance.

Been Waiting Years For This
We reside in rural south-central Nebraska where the weather in unpredictable. From ice storms to tornadoes, there are many of Nature's tantrums that can turn out the lights. The ice storm in Jan. '07 had us out for a week -- no power, no heat.

The peace-of-mind that comes with a standby generator is something that can't be adequately defined in a few words.
We haven't had to use it at this point, but the security of knowing it's there and ready is gratifying and a relief.

I recently purchased this for my mother who had a stroke several years ago and is unable to drive or get out much so power at home is very important. We are in the install phase so I cant comment on the generator . I can tell you my experience with buying it was great, the shipper contacted a family member who met them to unload it and it was just an easy transaction I would do it again .

We have an all electric home, so any power outage hurts. Had a 10kw portable generator, but it wouldn't run the heat pump if any other major appliances were in use. This one will power the whole house.

It arrived on schedule and was fairly easy to physically set up. Our propane guys hooked it up without a hitch. It has taken a while to get an electrician, mainly because of our locality and their reluctance to work on a generator they did not sell. Generator started right up and I am just... more

We bought this to replace a Generac that was put in the generator graveyard after the flood waters went over the top of it. It had served well. Due to the satisfaction of our first generac, we decided to replace it with another. The new one has been installed. Like the former generac, we placed it on a 40" stand as we know the possibility of floods. This flood was historic as we had 7'8" insde our home.

Still Installing It
Check with your county on codes. I had to have the meter upsized. The original meter, (average residential) was only rated for 300k btus. I sized the generator to run at 50% load with the whole house and A/C running at one time for longevity. Going with the air cooled model, I didn't want to stress out the motor and generator, and the cost to double the kws wasn't that much more, and the btu ratings don't change that much on the smaller models. I think they use the same motor for several sizes,... more

Confidence!
Power failures caused need for standby power. Wife's medical problems demanded standby power. As an architect, after many analytical studies, questions and details, answers all led to selecting a 22KW Generac Guardian. All brands compared, Generac had the best solutions and best price. Black Friday sale helped additionally on the price. Delivered on time, easily installed, tested and works automatically as designed.

Goodbye To Extended Power Outages
Living out in the country is nice but also brings with it extended power outages due to more brush, greater abundance of creatures that can cause power outages, and smaller number of repair crews to cover a large rural area.

Since installing the 22KW Generac standby system there are no longer any extended power outages or waking up to no power in the morning. The unit has worked flawlessly over the last nine months to cover us in five power outages.

I would recommend this unit to anyone... more

Good Sound Product
I received the generator in just a few days after ordering, it was in excellent condition with everything enclosed. The installation took about 7 hours total which included pouring a concrete pad, running new poly gas piping, wiring in the automatic switch, burying the connecting wiring in sealed conduit and hooking everything up. It was easy to program and has performed very well so far.

Great But Flawed Accessory
The generator is sound and very simple to install however, the transfer switch panel box does not come with pre-holes to push out as normal electrical panels come. In order to connect the transfer panel box you will have to spend hundreds or a thousand dollars to buy a hydraulic punch kit in order to make finished holes for conduit openings.

It seems that thru research and quality control processes this could be done before the transfer panel boxes are shipped to customers. This is why my... more

Everet,
Due to feed back from installers, Generac has eliminated the knock-outs on the new transfer switches. The previous style with the knockouts compromised the enclosure. Installers can drill where needed, a hydraulic punch kit is not needed.

The closeout model was a good deal free shipping, no taxes , and 2% off by writing a check under $4,300 plus 200 amp transfer Shed disconnect. I saved over $2,000 & more compared to other competitive Name Brands. Well the verdict is in Generac is guilty of out performing to be the best $$price competitive on the planet

Generac 6551 Best Investment Ever!!!!
My wife and I just moved to a new home with our baby boy. This home is 2.5 miles down a dirt road with lots of old trees lining the road. After talking to neighbors and hearing that they loose electricity every winter and once for over 3 weeks we knew that this would need a generator. We priced out the whole house automatic generators and decided that the 6551 was right for us. We ordered it from electric generators direct because the price was the best that we could find.

I am always hesitant to order large items online. After reading the reviews, I decided to order the generator. The folks were helpful and the generator arrived in perfect condition. One item was not sent but after calling, the item arrived the next day. If you're not in a hurry use the pay by check option, the savings is significant. I had a certified Generac dealer do the install and it was FLAWLESS.

We are hosting network servers at our house. The servers, 10 of them, are virtual servers and being virtual, they will be irreparably corrupted if the power goes out while they are running. We do have backups but rebuilding 10 servers from backups is still very time consuming.

Donna,
Sorry to hear that you are having an issue with the generator.

The most common issues that occur with these units are fuel related and may be the cause of the unit not starting. Another common error is the installer not connecting the T1 connection properly, which is the wire used to keep the battery charged.

Below is a link to the Generac Service Center Locator which will help you find a local Generac technician who can look at the generator and get the unit back up and running.

Greatest Discission I Ever Made
I called several company's to purchase, install and service an 16 or 20 KW generator as a standby power source. After scouting and pricing, I determined that most were out to make money anyway they could.

I researched everything myself and determined that I wanted a whole house generator backup so I purchased a 22 KW generator. I wanted my AC, washer, dryer, refrigerator and lighting in the event the power went out which happens here in Georgia periodically.

Do NOT use all of the... more

"When I set the date for delivery all was well until about 2 days later when I checked the shipping progress, it still had not been shipped. I work out of state and could not be there to accept the unit if it was late. I called Electric Direct and explained this to them. I was told the shipping was an estimate. I explained my delimit and was told someone had to be there to accept it or it would be returned and I would be charged with fright both ways and a return trip. I politely stated that I no longer need the unit as I would not agree to the freight terms. The polite person set up freight with an outside company at no additional charge to me. Thank you Electric Generators Direct."

My 22kw Generac Generator Experiance
The generator arrived in a timely fashion, then the problems started. To make a long story short, it took a total of 10 weeks to get everything hooked up. Then when the electrician and my self tried to start it it would not start. I called Generac and was told I would have to contact an authorized Generac dealer, which I did, they were unable to get it running now they are contacting Generac to see what they can do. They think it is a faulty solenoid. So in the meantime I am still with out a... more

Lots Of Bang For The Buck
This generator is a very well constructed and thought out unit. Lots of operating features. Unit was installed by my electrician with no major issues. Only one call to Generac customer support with a knowledgeable response to our question. The generator can run my entire 3200 square foot house at 50% of capacity.

The only design complaint is that the composite base that is part of the unit is not firmly attached to the generator. As a result, it moves independently of the full unit and this... more

It's After You Buy It That You Really Learn Something
I bought my Generac after searching various suppliers for the best price. Only took a day or so. Then I found Electric Generators Direct. They processed my order quickly, and it arrived in a very reasonable amount of time. But it's after the sale that you really learn something.

After you get the generator you expect that you'll have to find an installer nearby. I did. Then the best surprise ever! They want to charge you as much as you paid for the generator to install it. What??? ... more

After several power failures in my area, we decided to buy a generator. W e have a 3500 square foot home with two ac. A 4 ton and a 3 ton. Gas cook top and a gas water heater.

The oven is electric. We have gas heat. We had to shed the 3 ton ac. With everything on. The 22 kw ran just fine we are pleased so far. We recomended to two of our friends. They both bought the same generator. sam snowden greenbrier,ar

Joey,
Thank you for providing us with your review. It certainly seems as though you have put a great deal of work, time and consideration into your personal configuration. Please know that product specifications, such as the estimated consumption rates for the unit at various loads on different fuel sources, are provided on each unit's spec sheet for the product listing provided via our website (http://www.generac.com/). Also, for warranty-related concerns, we recommend having an independent authorized dealer in your local area complete any installation-related tasks. This is not to question your ability to complete such tasks yourself, but more of a concern regarding your product's warranty; any incurred issues that are determined to be caused by an installation performed by a party that has not been authorized through our training programs will not be covered under the product's warranty. Moreover, installation requirements will vary from one configuration to the next. Working with an independent authorized dealer and locally licensed plumber will help to ensure that a unit is appropriately installed in accordance with any local codes that may apply.

Lastly, to address your concerns regarding the time delay that can only be adjusted with a dealer code, please know that this too is due in part to the fact that this code is provided to those who have obtained the necessary code through our training programs. If you are interested in becoming an independent authorized dealer yourself, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722), or provide the required information via the following link: https://www.generac.com/resources-and-tools/become-a-dealer?cid=frm-105-ab . Furthermore, if you have any additional comments, questions, or concerns regarding your personal unit, please call the number provided above. Again, we thank you for your review and are pleased to learn of your positive experience with our product. We truly value your thoughtful feedback.

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Scott,
As detailed on the kit's specifications sheet, the Cold Weather Kit manufactured for use with Generac's 22kw automatic standby generators does in fact include a battery warmer. The kit will operate when temperatures fall below an acceptable level; the thermostat activates the battery warmer, which helps to maintain optimum battery temperature. The thermostat also activates the crankcase oil heater for optimal generator performance. This kit is recommended for generators installed in regions where the temperature regularly falls below 32 degrees (Fahrenheit). If you have any additional inquiries, please contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

Well I purchased my Generac because:

I have a major investment in it and would hate to lose any of it due to a power outage. Like I said, I have installed many Generac's with no issues until this one.

Although a simple fix, I still had to stress it until it was solved. The generator would not run when trying to start.

This is our second generator purchase from Generators Direct and we are very pleased. We purchased our first 20kW unit about 18 months ago and it has ran about 30 hours so far to provide emergency power to our home. We just purchased a 22kW for our second home which we have rented out. The day after I installed it the power went off for 1-1/2 hours, it worked great.

So Far So Good.
I have recently installed the Generac Guardian 22kW. I see this investment as an insurance policy that I hope never to use. But my family is well worth it. I formed and poured a concrete base with 6 bags of Quick Crete.

Then my local electrician installed the automatic switch and then ran conduit and wiring from my electrical panel to the other end of my house where I placed the generator due to the placement of my gas meter. Next, my local plumber ran the 11/4" gas piping and shazaam!... more

Note--make sure your unit is maintained by pros to uphold the warranty. Read the warranty.

Egd Fine....delivery Company Horrible!
Ordered a 22kw through EGD. Shipping company SAIA called me and on first contact stated they would not deliver to my house...to the street. Real Jackhole.. They said it would be delivered on a Thursday between 12-2pm. No show..no call. I contacted EGD...never heard back. Delivery guy finally showed up...we had to get our plumbers backhoe to offload.. Just keep in mind the generator is fine...delivery is tough.

Generac Is Really Nice
Ordered my Generac 22kW it arrived at my house on a truck with a lift gate a very nice feature which was at little or no extra cost.

Be sure to read the instructions and get your code if you don't the generator only works on manual mode.

Hired an electrician to install it and he did a great job, was there when scheduled, a big plus.

The only complaint I have is the failure to receive even ONE phone call from the 3 contractors the seller was to provide. Had to find my own and to be... more

It Works!
We ordered a 22 kw model with winterization kit. It arrived in a timely manner in good condition. We had poured a pad and had an electrician install it. The activation process was simple and straightforward. In less than a week the power company gave us the chance to see how it worked -- it did great! It is quieter than I expected, I was somewhat concerned about it running weekly but it does not disturb the neighborhood.

This is my 2nd standby from Generac in 5 years = I hope this one lasts a little longer than the 1st one did - unit needs more room for battery and wiring. I am a licensed electrician.

Big Volts, 22kw...
Needed a temporary power supply for an older home which was under-going a total remodel. The 22kw model 6551 running on a independent propane supply is a perfect solution to run lights and power tools.

We could have used temporary power poles but would have lost the cost of the temporary poles. With the Generac unit we take it with us when the job is complete, nothing is lost.

I was a little apprehensive about getting a home generator. The cost, would I need it in the future. Well the service from EGD was great. Delivery was fast and easy. The generator is a God sent. Power around my neighborhood has been going off and on all week. Weather is good. I found out the electric company is working on the lines. So I couldn't have bought the Generac at a better time.

I am glad that I made the purchase of a Generac 200 A 22kW system.

My installer said it was the best around, and it is. Most of my friends have gasoline portable generators, but ran into problems when there was a shortage of gas during Sandy super storm.

No need to worry with a natural gas connection.

I have not had a situation where it was needed yet, but I know it's ready if I need it.

The generator was easy to install and started right up. The only thing I would caution is using the Gen Pad made for these units. The bolt pattern is hard to get to and took 3 guys almost an hour oh kickin the generator around on the pad to get it lined up. Engineer on thiamine a complete FAIL. Wish these designers now a days would think before they act. But overall the generator is nice and does its job

I just got mine and am so far happy with it since it runs my whole house. One thing is you still have to pay for install. A company was charging me 12000 dollars for a 20 watt, So I got the 22w and called a electrician I know and put it in for 6000.There is a RV space rental up the street from me and every time it goes to 15 degrees and below the electric shouts off and I have electric heat. Long story short hope that's the end of freezing or going to my sisters for 3 days.

Top Notch Performance, But One Design Flaw
The generator does everything well that it's designed to do. The Transfer switch is easy to wire, but the cabinet for the generator has been designed to be as compact as possible which causes installation difficulties.

The pre-made holes for the electric wiring on the cabinet are too low which makes it difficult to bend that large aluminum wiring to connect to the connection block. Also the 100 amp breaker is positioned in a way that there is only a little peep hole to look through to see... more

I have purchased several standby generators from your company and have been pleased with the units and the service until you started shipping with SAIA Trucking Lines. They fail to call 24 hours ahead as requested and didn't deliver at the time they informed me it would be delivered. I was given three delivery times and they missed all three.

I'm sorry to hear that the generator had problems right from the start. This is not a very common problem and Generac does provide great service when things like this happen. We are one of Generac's largest dealers and occasionally we will run into a problem like this and depending on the situation we can get the problem resolved right away.

I recommend contacting Generac again at 888-436-3722 so they have a record of the issues that you have had so they can better serve customers in the future when things like this happen.

Pad Very Difficult To Use

Some of the problems that I encountered are that the pad is very slick and must be attached properly, that being said the bolt holes do not line up to the plastic pad that is mounted to the generator and the bolts are not a good fit into the pre-engineered screw holes and one was broken off.
