    Great Help

    Posted by Thomas Werner on Jan 26, 2018

    Generator performs great. first I went to Home Depot first to get information and too purchase a 16kW home standby generator. I could not find anybody in the store to help me. when I did find someone they knew absolutely nothing about generators. Told me that I should get a Generac 7037. So frustrated I left the store. Searched the net and found AP Electric & Generators. Beyond helpful. major save after they asked me a bunch of questions to help size the generator it was determined that I have 100amp service. So if I took Home Depot's advice I would have ordered the wrong generator. Plus I got a better price from AP Electric. I would order from this website again in a heartbeat. Generator works great.
