This Generac Guardian Series Standby Generator protects your home automatically 24/7. Runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit.

Add even greater convenience with a Mobile Link (not included), Generac’s cellular remote monitoring system.

Not intended for use as primary power in place of utility or in life-support applications. Read the owner's manual in its entirety before using this product.
