Operation at Low Natural Gas Fuel Pressure
The Guardian Series is the only home standby generator that can operate on natural gas fuel pressure as low as 3½" of water column. This makes it ideal for use in municipalities with low natural gas pressure.

The smarter transfer switches feature improved load management for easier, more cost effective installation. A new 300A service entrance rated switch is available, with smart switches available up to 800A.

Re-engineered Connection Points
To minimize installation time, costs, and errors while accomodating current and future electrical code interpretations, Generac re-engineered many wiring connection points within the generators and related smart transfer switches. We also modified the enclosures to make it easier to connect wiring and fuel supplies.

Mobile Link
Mobile Link is the affordable new cellular remote monitoring system that gives customers peace of mind, by allowing them to know the status of their generator anywhere, anytime, using their computer, tablet or smartphone.
When the generator experiences a change in status, Mobile Link sends the update to, which proactively forwards that information via website, email or text message – automatically.

Premium Features

Premium features are standard for the ultimate standby generator. Thanks to its low speed engine, it's so quiet you will forget you even own a generator until you need it.

Low-speed, automotive-style, liquid-cooled engine runs at only 1800 rpm during a power outage for a substantially quieter generator, greater fuel efficiency, and longer engine and alternator life.
Super quiet, super efficient, Trademarked Quiet-Test mode for a weekly test mode that's quieter than other brands, consumes less fuel and helps make your Generac generator the most environmentally friendly on the market.
Standard aluminum, all weather enclosure provides the ultimate protection from the elements. Aluminum's natural corrosion resistance prolongs the life of your generator and is recommended for salt air, coastal locations.

Generac Versus the Competitors

Generac launched the very first automatic home standby generator back in 1959 and over fifty years later they continue to lead the industry. They are always increasing their product line, continue to invest money into research and development, and are working towards creating better technology.
There's really no nice way to say it – Generac products are better than their competitors. You've probably seen the other brands out there, some of them big players. But there are no shortcuts to success. Generac designs their engines right here in the good ole United States of America. Most competitors engines are made to cut grass and are sourced from overseas. That may be the right approach for some companies, but not for us.
