A home generator can fall anywhere between useful and downright essential for any number of reasons. The Northeast is plagued by frequent winter storms and their resulting blackouts, and you need to be able to keep the lights on and the fridge running in a pinch. Or maybe you rely on lifesaving medical equipment like a CPAP machine and can’t run the risk of having it cut out.
Best overall: Generac 7228 18kW Guardian
You can’t beat the Generac Guardian if you’re looking for dependable, whole-home backup power. While this line is available in a range of sizes and packages, we recommend the 7228 18kW with transfer switch specifically as it not only provides plenty of power for virtually any home but, thanks to the switch, can be set up to turn on instantly upon losing utility power.
This isn’t the kind of generator you wheel around or carry. It’s a big, very heavy unit intended to be installed and left to sit in place, waiting to do what it does. Generac generators are famously reliable, and this particular model’s 18,000W output will easily power an entire house, from lights to kitchen appliances (including the refrigerator) to various electronics like your TV and wifi router.
What’s more, its ability to link to WiFi allows you to monitor its operation via an app, which lets you switch it on and off and keep an eye on usage and fuel levels from the comfort of your home. By pretty much every metric, this is a truly outstanding generator.
