HOME BACKUP POWER.COMFORT. SECURITY. COME WHAT MAY.
A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects your home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. A home backup generator delivers power directly to your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items.
Protect the things that matter during a power outage.
Generac’s Guardian Series 8 kW automatic standby generator provides essential circuit power protection for your home, ensuring necessities such as lights, refrigeration and more remain powered during an outage. This affordable automatic standby generator offers protection for about half the cost of central air conditioning.
True Power Technology
Best-in-class power quality with less than 5% total harmonic distortion means clean, smooth operation of your sensitive electronics and appliances.
When combined with a pre-wired transfer switch, re-engineered connection points, and composite mounting pad that eliminates the need for a poured concrete base (unless specified by local codes), the Guardian Series 8 kW generator is easy to install.
All-Weather Steel Enclosure
Our durable powder-coat finish helps make the sturdy, Galvanneal steel enclosure perfect for all weather conditions. It’s also able to withstand 150 mph winds.
Quick, Quiet Exercise Test
Standby generators require a short run-time periodically, known as exercise, to test and ensure the system is functioning properly and ready for an emergency. The Guardian 8 kW self-test runs for only twelve minutes. Choose your schedule - weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.
Rated for Operation in Areas with Low Natural Gas Pressure
In areas with low natural gas pressure, the Guardian Series 8 kW generator can operate on natural gas pressures of only 3.5” of water column.
24/7/365 Customer Support

Factory Pure has Always treated Me right I Purchase units to resell ,
I always shop prices and they Have always been the most competitive
I have emailed and talked with one person at Factory Pure and tried to connect with my salesman but haven't heard back from any one yet. I received the generator I ordered but did not receive the two heating kits I ordered with the generator. They are saying I received them but they were not on the delivery truck with the generator. They did not arrive earlier like the transfer switch did, and they have not arrived in the last 12 days since the generator arrived. I had an electrician lined up to wire the generator into my home on Saturday the 15th, which he did, and now I have to have him come back, & pay him more money to wire in the heating kits, when they arrive! And hopefully that will be soon. We have cold weather coming soon and I am still waiting to get this issue resolved. If it doesn't I will be placing more reviews online regarding this situation. Hopefully they will be good ones and it gets resolved quickly.
