I did have to contact the 24/7/365 support line to activate the unit. As an engineer I’ve had lots of industrial experience with big Generacs and I love this little unit. It has lots of great design and operating features.

The GENERAC home automatic home power system is everything it needs to be. It automatically senses a power loss and restores electricity to the home so air conditioning and other vital systems, like refrigeration, computers, phones and television all stay on and available-- not to mention lighting and well and/or sump pumps-- which all helps to maintain comfort, food preservation and connectivity so you know what's going on during an emergency power outage-- especially during a storm.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer beware Purchased 22kw generator in August of 2018 for piece of mind. Unit was hooked up in November of 2018. First power outage was 8 hours long in June of 2019 at which time I noted oil spraying out of generator. Entire bottom of unit was covered. Contacted Generac who provided the nearest certified technician. Upon speaking with them they advised Generac absolutely horrible in covering warranty. Will not cover travel time which for me means I am out 600 dollars they only cover a maximum of half hour diagnostic time. I looked over machine notes a leak coming from head gaskets all bolts were loose. Tightened them down hoping that fixed the problem next power outage revealed it didn’t leak seems to be coming from rear seal area. Generac again can only recommend a certified technician. A costly venture. Contacted Home Depot who advised 90 day return has passed. In the end an expensive piece of mind is an expensive yard ornament

    My home is a 400 amp single phase 120/240 service. What model number transfer switch do I need to purchase with the 22,000 watt generator?

    Asked by: Benji
    You would need either the model #RXSC400A3 or the #RXSW400A3 transfer switch with your home and the Generac model #7042. We recommend working with an authorized Generac dealer to determine the best setup for your home. If you need assistance finding a local dealer, we recommend using our dealer locator found here: http://www.generac.com/dealer-locator

    Can these generators be used for off grid applications? If not what other options are there for that capability?

    Asked by: Gary
    No, the 22kW liquid cooled home standby generator cannot be used as an off-grid power source. We recommend using an EcoGen series home standby generator for off-grid applications.

    This unit does not have an Automatic transfer switch, so what size of transfer switch goes with this unit or is preferable?

    Asked by: Ronny
    For whole home applications, the amperage of the transfer switch must match the utility service coming into the home. For example if you have 200 Amp utility service, you will need a 200 Amp transfer switch. If you are unsure of the correct automatic transfer switch for your home, we recommend working with an authorized Generac dealer who will be better able to assist you.

    is the price $5679 Canadian? Also it says it does not come with an auto transfer switch. Can this be purchased from HD and if so how much is it?

    Asked by: Rocky
    There are prepackaged units (includes generator and automatic transfer switch) available for purchase through the Home Depot or you can purchase the transfer switch separately.
