Electric Generators Direct Recommended

Generac is the only manufacturer that offers a 22kW air cooled home standby generator . This unit is unlike any home standby currently available and is far below the price of a comparable liquid cooled model.

At 22kW, model 7043 is the largest air-cooled generator on the market. This model is equipped with a 5 year warranty, and has all of the features and functionality that customers have come to expect from the number one standby generator manufacturer. Generac, through strategy and... more

Hurricane Matthew Is Foiled!
We installed the 22kw Generac whole house generator in August 2015. It runs itself for 5 minutes every 2 weeks, and even tells us when is time to check the battery! At 3:58am on 10/7/16 Matthew shut down our power. Within 30 seconds our entire 2400 sq ft. house, hvac and all was back under power. The Generac is so quiet we hardly noticed it was on for 18 straight hours. It is so far trouble free. We even ran an extension cord to one of our neighbors here is Titusville, Florida. My whole family... more

I Am Really Satisfied With My Purchase
I received the generator in a timely manner, without damage, and had no issues getting it installed and up and running. I am ready for the next ice storm, which we have pretty frequently in Oklahoma. Last time this happened we were without electricity for 7-days.
Pros: Features, Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Impressive New Producy
I had a theee year old "load sharing" General that required three relay boxes. New 22KW was installed at our newly purchased Co-op home and is much simpler and handles entire house. Well documented and easy installation about 5 hours to have it up and running. Buy it with confidence!
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Easy To Use, Price
Cons: Heavy

Glad To Have A Reliable Backup
We built a house in 2014 and purchased this model generator from you in September of 2014. It was installed in November of 2014. We programmed it to run every two weeks on my day off...they call it "exercising" the generator. We got the cold weather kit (battery heater) since we live in Minnesota and -20F is not uncommon here in winter. We have had several power outages since, living in the country as we do, and the generator has worked flawlessly.

It is loud enough for us to... more

Easy Process
I purchased the Generac online from Electric Generators Direct without any fuss or hassle. I did compare it to other ones on sale and the price all companies charge was the same. The savings comes from Freight and Sales Taxes.

The delivery company ABF left somewhat to be desired. It was difficult to nail them down on a delivery time (1 week). They do have online tracking. Once my generator arrived in the Miami Facility it took them awhile to get out. Hurricane Matthew did not impact... more

Peace Of Mind
We have had our Generac 22w for over a year and it has been a blessing. The area has had several power outages due to bad weather over the time we have had our new home and each time it has performed flawlessly. I had considered a PTO generator but after our Groundhog Day blizzard, there was NO way I could have gotten the tractor over to the power pole. I highly recommend this generator,NO REGRETS.
