      After both parents passed away I moved back to the "home" place. Our parents added a basement in the 50's to accommodate a coal furnace. There are 2 sump pumps that work great so long as the power doesn't fail. The first fall I lived here we had 13" of rain in less than 24 hours and the power went out! Water was almost up to my ankles in parts of the basement. Mom & Dad had purchased a small generator in the early 80's and had a manual transfer switch added to run the sump pumps and fan on the furnace (they had a gas furnace by this time). After pulling the cord LOTS of times I simply could not get the generator started. Still having an "old" type land line phone I called a neighbor about midnight for help. By the time he and his wife got their generator, brought it to my home, got it hooked up and started ... just as the first sump pump kicked on the power came back on. That night, I fully understood why my Mom and Dad got in a panic when the power went off. Living here as an adult is very different that having lived here as a child! My major appliances: tankless water heater, cook stove and furnaces are all gas so the 14 kw unit works for my whole house. I also purchased the automatic transfer switch. I am THRILLED with my Generac generator. We have had several power outages anywhere from 2-5 hours during the hot part of the summer as well as into fall and it has kicked on without a flaw. In fact the first time I didn't even realize it was running until I noticed my security light wasn't burning, that is the ONLY thing not hooked to the generator. Recently the power was out for about 5-6 hours. I later ran into a neighbor who was going to town to get something to eat (we live in the country). They did not know I had a generator so when they drove by my house and saw it lit up they turned around and went back home thinking the power was back on. They were very disappointed when they found there was still NO power. Many people will find that the cost isn't nearly as much as you might think. This generator is right at the top of the list of purchases I have ever made. As I'm writing this review it is storming outside but I KNOW if the power goes out everywhere else, in a matter of a few seconds it will be back on. I truly do feel my Generac "Guardian" is truly a guardian for me. I only wish my parents could have felt the peace I now feel when the power goes out!

      Very frustated that the electircal coil went out after 4 yrs, about 80 hours of use and at least half of that was just the weekly test run.Now to repair it it will cost more than 1/2 of a new unit.Talked to an electrician who said mine was the 3rd unit he's heard of with the same problem. Service tech couldn't tell me why it happened. Only lost power a few times since I got it and never more than 12 hours, and it isn't set up to run my whole house.Was never overloaded.

          I just had the unit installed. The next day the power went off for a very short time and the generator started. When the power came back on, the unit cooled and shut itself off. The unit is worth the peace of mind it gives me.

                                      Purchased a 14KW Generac in the summer of 2012 after the second week without power that summer. Installed it myself with the easy to follow instructions. It has started and done the weekly test cycles on time. Finally got a chance to have it work taday when without warnig the power suddenly went out. Within 30 seconds the generator kicked on an worked great. Highly recommend to anyone... no more cold showers, cold nights or spoiled food... Thanks Generac for a truly great product

                                          After loosing power last year for 4 1/2 days, I purchased a 14kw for my house. Runs on natural gas, test runs every week. We have been waiting for a power outage, to see how it responded. Today I had main power return after 60+ hours of being offline. The generac started and maintained my whole house without a single problem. I shut down twice to check the oil, and it picked up and started again like nothing happend. Would recommend to anyone to purchase a whole house generac. So much easier, no fuel to carry, no worry about running out of fuel.

                                            Having this generator provides peace of mind. I don't have to worry that if we're not home during a power outage the sub pump will stop working and our basement will flood.
