Generac 6244 standby generator reviews are very positive. Here’s a quick note from an electrician that loves this model:

Although I have installed several of these units, I am obviously not trying to drum up business, as I am posting anonymously. I have installed all of the major brands over the last 23 years, and you can’t beat this generator for the money… read more

It is CARB compliant which means it meets California’s emissions standards. It is 20K Watts which makes it a good choice as a whole house generator.

Here is another Generac 6244 review:

After installation approx. 2 months ago everything works great on all of my test runs every Sunday at noon 3000′ sq-ft home with 2 ac units running at the same time along with several other things on in my home the unit only runs at about 40%. Now keep in mind I would not realistically be using both ac units at the same time that is just for a couple of test that I ran. The unit sits about 10′ from my home and is unbelievably quiet. I also purchased Generac 5951 Wireless Remote in Home Monitor that allows me the option of in home monitoring with the power to switch the unit on/off remotely from inside my home. Now I have some peace of mind if & when the power go’s out. You can’t go wrong with Generac at Home! read more

According to Generac’s power needs calculator, the 6244 is an excellent choice as a whole house generator. I entered the following items that I wanted to power for a 2,400 square foot home:

  • Well pump
  • Sump pump
  • Electric water heater
  • Gas furnace
  • Central air
  • Refrigerator
  • Freezer
  • Electric oven/stove
  • Microwave
  • Dishwasher
  • Garage Door
  • Electric Dryer
  • Computer
  • Wi-Fi
  • Security system

The Generac power needs tool recommended generators in the range of 17,000 – 20,000 Watts. And as you can see, I went a little overboard with my power needs, for example, wanting to run the central air and furnace at the same time. The Generac 6244 will cover all of your power needs for safety, convenience, and comfort during a power outage.
