If you want to completely power your home during an outage, 22 kW generators are the way to go.
At Mabe’s Electrical and Home Improvement, when we get asked by customers in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area about the best option for covering most, if not all, electrical needs during an outage, our response is hands-down the 22 kW generators offered by Generac. Their Guardian® series home standby generator provides the lowest cost per kilowatt of any on the market and is sufficient for whole house coverage in most situations.
Generac 22 kW generators can be powered by natural gas or liquid propane. The Wi-Fi equipped models include their specialty Mobile Link™ Wi-Fi connectivity feature which lets you monitor the status using your smartphone, PC, or tablet from anywhere in the world. The 22 kW model requires a 100 amp main line circuit breaker and if you need an electrical panel upgrade to accommodate this requirement, we are more than happy to help you with that.
If your idea of surviving a power outage is not compromising on what devices and appliances you can use, 22 kW generators are the way to go. In most cases, you’ll be able to go on as normal, even with air conditioning running! That’s not something that is possible with portable generators or mid-range generators, although we can help you with those as well if you do not need a whole-house generator.
If you would like an assessment to determine which type of generator is right for you or to learn more about 22 kW generators, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
