Generac 5870 Guardian Series Air-Cooled 8kW 120/240 Volt Single Phase Steel Residential Generator with EZ Transfer Switch

Generac Guardian Series Residential Generators

Based out of Waukesha, Wisconsin, Generac Power Systems is proud to be an American company that sells a great American product. In fact, Generac sells the #1 home standby generator in the United States and Canada, a generator four out of five families choose when it comes to picking a system for their home. This generator is called the Guardian and it is dependable enough to provide a home or small business with 24 hour a day, 7 day a week protection against power failure. That’s the kind of performance you’d expect from a company that’s been building residential generators since 1959.

Of course, when it comes to the Guardian Series, Generac customers have a lot of options to choose from in terms of watt production and extra features. However, there are some features every Guardian gets standard like automatic and hands-free backup power, automatic activation within ten seconds of power loss, the OHVI engine which is the only engine specifically designed for a generator, simple installation requirements, included mounting pad, TruePower Technology for sensitive electronic devices, Quiet-Test, minimal emissions, great value, and a whole lot more.

Added on top of all those standard features is Generac’s three year warranty for every homeowner who buys a Guardian Series residential generator. That’s three years of system protection, and just one more way Generac makes sure your family isn’t without power in case of an emergency. You can certainly find a more expensive residential generator out there, but you wont’ find a better one. 

Generac Guardian 8kW Residential Generator:

 

Homeowners interested in getting back-up power for their home during a power outage should seriously consider investing in a Generac Guardian 8kW residential generator. The Guardian 8kW is specifically designed as home generator, built with emergency situations in mind. To that end, it’s Nexus Controller is one of the most comprehensive available and the LCD display makes generator function management and monitoring very simple. The Guardian 8kW residential generator is also flexible enough that it’s a simple change to switch one from natural gas to LP fuel.

By far the best feature of the Guardian 8kW is the master-crafted OHVI engine. Unlike every other competitor, Generac built their OHVI engine specifically to work with the specific needs of generator systems. This has paid off, since an OHVI engine has a lifespan almost four times greater than the competition. It also doesn’t require as much maintenance as other residential generator systems.

If an OHVI engine was the only feature a Guardian 8kw residential generator sported, it would still be a great buy. That not being the case, every Guardian 8kw comes with TruePower Technology to ensure smooth operation of sensitive electronics, RhinoCoat finish over galvanneal steel to stand up to the worst weather conditions, sturdy construction that can resist 150 mph winds, sound reducing foam panels, Hour Meter monitors to indicate when maintenance is needed, one of the simplest installations of any residential generator, and a composite mounting pad. To put the cherry on top, Generac includes a three year warranty with every Guardian 8kW. It really is a best buy.

Stand up to unpredictable weather and unforeseen outages with the most trusted name in residential standby power. If the power ever goes out, your Generac standby generator goes on - automatically - protecting you and your home 24/7.

Never feel powerless with the #1 selling home standby generator. Choose the generator four out of five families have already installed.
