Generac 6462 16 kW Guardian Standby Generator and Switch
Guardian Series 16kw Standyby Generator provides essential circuit power protection for your home, ensuring the necessities remain powered during an outage or up to whole house coverage when paired with one of Generac’s load- shedding switches. Capable of backing up a five ton air conditioner. This model includes a 200 Amp whole house transfer switch.


Your Guardian Series generator might have to get you through days or weeks without utility power. Generac’s OHVI engine, specifically designed for generator use, provides the reliability to power through the most severe outages. True Power Technology provides best-in-class power quality with less than 5% total harmonic distortion means clean, smooth operation of your sensitive electronics and appliances. The next generation of intuitive controllers featuring a multilingual, two-line LCD text display with color-coded, backlit buttons. Certified for 18" installation to the home. Third-party certified to NFPA standards to be installed as close as 18" from the home’s exterior wall, provided it is located away from doors, windows, and fresh-air intakes, and unless otherwise directed by local codes. Rated for operation in areas with low natural gas pressure. In areas with low natural gas pressure, the Guardian Series 16 kW generator can operate on natural gas pressures of only 3.5" of water column. 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. Tool-less fuel conversion. Switch between natural gas and LP fuel in the field in a few seconds, without the need for any tools. All standby generators run a weekly test to ensure the system is running properly. Thanks to Quiet-Test, your Guardian Series home standby generator runs its self-test at a lower, quieter RPM than standard operation, and can be programmed to run weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Compatible with Generac’s Mobile Link cellular remote monitoring system (sold separately). Allows you to check on your generator’s status using your computer, tablet or smartphone, even when you are away. Generac's Managed Whole House Transfer Switch is included with this model. Gain up to whole-house coverage through smart power management. The process is simple - non-essential circuits are shed when the generator approaches maximum capacity to eliminate overload, then are cycled back on when essential circuits are satisfied. Combined with a 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 16 kW generator is easy to install. 5-year Limited Warranty.
