Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Seelessly! I decided to install a standby generator for "piece of mind" as part of my new house construction. (New house construction is a great time to consider one). We live in California, and I've lived though large storms and earthquakes that can knock out power for a while. I chose this GE 13KW model because of its compact size, the good power match for a large energy-efficient home, and the ability to switch to our dryer or AC (which are high-power devices) using the power management modules. Those modules basically monitor if enough power is available (ie. enough devices turned off in our house), before it will enable the high-power devices. The generator has only gone on for a blackout lasting 5 minutes - I consider these short outages as good test runs and was glad to see the electrical system automatically switch over to the generator! Another bonus - the system automatically runs itself for 20 minutes each week for maintenance. The generator is a little noisy (like a lawn mower) - but I feel it is acceptable because it is for 'standby'. August 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanted one for the old house never got one. Moved into the lake house and lost power 4 times the first month. 2 of those times were for more than 3 days. A generator moved to the top of the list. When the power goes out the GE generator starts within a minute. Great when its the middle of the night and everyone is sleeping we make it to work on time. The neighbors run an extension cord to our house for tempory power. Best thing I can say is on those "COLD" winter nights we still have heat. Havent needed it in the summer yet but there should be no problem. May 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 GE Generator out smarts the competition Our GE 13KW whole house generator and power management center is the second whole house generator we have owned. Our GE system is smarter than the competition, due to its unique power management system. We only needed this unit not one larger for our home, but with a competitors model it would have been a larger unit. We travel most of the winter and our home is in a very rural area. The neighbors were envious that we had power to keep the house warm and freezer running while others had no power many times this past winter. It was the best insurance we could have gotten for our new home. The unit is attractive, and fits nicely in the space we allocated for it. It runs quieter than the competitors model. April 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big results in a small package Purchased ours when they first came out 3 years ago, and it's paid for itself big time in not having to leave New Orleans for storms- no power is no fun in August heat. Runs great- and the power modules let you run a big AC with entire house, and not spend extra on big gas line runs. It's sad the public still wastes money on over-sized generators, when the brains/software of GE units do the same for so much less- and save on space as they only 18" from a building- not the 3+ feet others require. Very Satisfied.... May 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by peace of mind! We have not had to rely on our generator but for 2 hours in the 4 years we've had it. But every time there's a storm warning, we know we can relax with this standby generator. We run it weekly and service it annually and we just know it's gonna take care of us when we need it most.
