 Generac 5885 Guardian Series Air-Cooled 17kW 120/240 Volt Single Phase Steel Residential Generator

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 17kW Residential Generator

A Generac Guardian 17kW residential generator is exactly what you need if you’re looking for a generator to back up your home’s five ton air conditioner. The Guardian 17kW is powerful enough to do the job you want, reliable enough to ensure years of operating life, comes with features that make it one of the easiest generators to monitor and control, and affordable enough to fit most budgets. Meanwhile, it’s also flexible enough to use either natural gas or liquid propane, and switching between the two requires only a simple field conversion.

Power, is as easy obstacle for the Guardian 17kW residential generator to overcome since its OHVI engine can produce 17,000 watts of power. And, since its an OHVI engine, it will last three to four times longer than a competitor model. That internal endurance works well with the sturdy galvanneal steel or all-weather aluminum cabinet that can stand up to 150 mph winds and offers superior protection against inclement weather and damaging debris. Then, QuietTest Mode self-tests on a weekly basis while external indicator lights let you know immediately if there’s a problem.

Of course, if there is a problem, Generac’s three year standard warranty offers strong protection for any unanticipated issue that might arise. Barring that, homeowners can count on their Guardian 17kW residential generator to get them through the toughest storms Mother Nature can produce.
