From the Manufacturer
HOME BACKUP POWER.COMFORT. SECURITY. COME WHAT MAY.
A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects your home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. A home backup generator delivers power directly to your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items.
Protect the things that matter during a power outage.
Generac’s 11 kW Guardian Series home standby generator provides essential circuit power protection for your home, ensuring the necessities remain powered during an outage. Has the ability to backup a 3-ton air conditioner, well pump or water heater, and the main rooms of your house.
True Power Technology
Best-in-class power quality with less than 5% total harmonic distortion means clean, smooth operation of your sensitive electronics and appliances.
When combined with a pre-wired transfer switch, re-engineered connection points, and composite mounting pad that eliminates the need for a poured concrete base (unless specified by local codes), the Guardian Series 11 kW generator is easy to install.
All-Weather Steel Enclosure
Our durable powder-coat finish helps make the sturdy, Galvanneal steel enclosure perfect for all weather conditions. It’s also able to withstand 150 mph winds.
Quick, Quiet Exercise Test
Standby generators require a short run-time periodically, known as exercise, to test and ensure the system is functioning properly and ready for an emergency. The Guardian 11 kW self-test runs for only twelve minutes. Choose your schedule - weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.
Rated for Operation in Areas with Low Natural Gas Pressure
In areas with low natural gas pressure, the Guardian Series 11 kW generator can operate on natural gas pressures of only 3.5” of water column.
24/7/365 Customer Support
Power outages don’t always occur during normal working hours. That’s why Generac’s customer care call center—right here in Wisconsin—provides support any time of day or night, all year long. Generac is standing by 24/7, every minute of every day, to answer your questions.
- Runs on home’s existing natural gas or liquid propane supply, eliminating refueling, manual start and extension cords

Top Customer Reviews
As far as installation goes, most electricians are going to charge anywhere from $500 to $1000 for transfer box, and then the plumber to hook up the gas line. Gas has to be ran to the unit, so unless you have an existing gas line already in place, the plumber has to lay pipe and your natural gas. Total cost for install was just under $1500.
The unit looks great, self tests every week, and providing I maintain the unit, it should last many years
Since it is powered by natural gas, it is relatively quiet to the gasoline powered generators in the neighborhood. It was trouble free and gave very even output no matter what the load was on the unit with its 20 circuits. For a 3000 square foot home, including the pool house / equipment, it powers about 65% of the devices (lights, water pump, heat pump, electronics / tv / satellite ) and makes staying in the home easy while my neighbors either went to hotels or struggled with their portables, refilling their tanks every 6 to 12 hours of use.
so the electrical company sent someone out that night to turn it on for us and make sure our other pilot lights were lit.
Everyone around us lost power but our little town was spared. The lights flickered but no outage. Wouldn't you know it!
Anyway. The price that you see here, double it. Ours came in at just over $6,000. We now no longer panic when the wind starts to blow.
We live in WA state and are always loosing power. It's well worth the price for the piece of mind.
By the way they will maintain it for you once a year for $275.00. We have a guarantee of five years if we have problems we call them.
That's what I want because I have no idea how to do this. My husband says it's like maintaining a car engine but he said let the expects do it.
As to the generator and the automatic transfer switch which I have received in before the time expected , I feel these will be fine and I will get exactly what I expected. However I feel that you did not complete the order based on information from the advertisement. I have sent you a section of this advertisement so you can better understand why I feel this order is not complete. I believe you need to modify the advertisement so as not to mislead the Amazon customers.
