Now is great time to save on a Generac Guardian Standby Generator Model 6462. This 16-kilowatt unit runs on both natural gas and LP gas (propane) and includes a 200-amp, service-entrance-rated automatic transfer switch. The manufacturer’s standard five-year limited consumer warranty applies.
Standby generators offer the security and peace of mind that goes with knowing you’ll never be without electrical power for all your essentials and the comforts of home, even during extended power outages. These permanently installed, must-have appliances operate automatically, much like your furnace or air conditioner. When the power goes out, they begin supplying the home with electricity within seconds.
The Generac OHVI engine will keep your generator operating through power outages that might last a few hours or a few weeks. It was specifically designed for the tough demands a generator places on an engine with features like a fully pressurized lubrication system similar to an automotive engine. The plateau-honed, cast-iron cylinder walls provide increased rigidity and fuel economy while extending engine life.
The Evolution Controller continuously monitors the utility line voltage and begins the start sequence the instant power goes out. An integrated smart charger keeps the battery at peak level relative to temperature and lets you know when the battery is reaching the end of its life so you can replace it—before it fails
The programmable exercise feature keeps the generator ready to run with a quiet, low-speed cycle you can set to operate every week, biweekly, or monthly.
During operation, the controller monitors and regulates the voltage and frequency to ensure the cleanest possible power.
Tru-Power technology ensures the best, cleanest power possible with less than 5 percent total harmonic distortion. Clean power means your appliances and sensitive electronics operate without a hitch, even while the generator powers loads as big as a 5-ton air conditioner.
The Evolution Controller is a multilingual, two-line LCD text display that includes color-coded, back-lit buttons. The controller provides programming features, and logs of maintenance alerts, alarms, and run history. It will even tell you if there is a problem with the system wiring.
An all-steel enclosure is powder coated to withstand harsh weather and inhospitable climates. The attractive design allows the generator to fit into any urban neighborhood, while the 66dB sound level won’t keep you or your neighbors awake.
Guardian generators are UL2200 listed for safety.

Automatic Transfer Switch
The 200-amp, service-entrance-rated automatic transfer switch isolates your home from the utility lines. This protects the generator, the home, and the utility line workers from harm. It automatically selects utility power or generator power as appropriate.
Included in the ATS is the capability to manage two air-conditioners without additional hardware. Four more high-voltage, high current devices can be added with the addition of a Power Management Module starter kit and a Power Management Module for each device.
This arrangement allows the 6462 to supply an entire home with power and run air conditioners and furnaces to laptops and televisions or microwave ovens. Digital Power Management is a priority based system that allows each appliance to operate when power from the generator is available.
The 6462 standby generator system is designed to simplify installation and reduce installation costs and has been certified for installation just 18 inches from the home, making it perfect for tight lot lines and small yards.
It comes with an attached composite pad for placement on a gravel bed (where permitted) instead of on a concrete pad.
The Automatic Transfer Switch carries a NEMA 3R rating for indoor/outdoor installation. The service-entrance rating allows it to serve as the main cutoff for the home’s electrical system.
