Briggs & Stratton 16KW Installed Generator

The Briggs & Stratton 16 kW generator system helps keep your family safe, comfortable and free from the stress that comes with power outages, by providing your home with automatic backup power when you need it most. A perfect fit for up to 8,000 to 11,500 square-foot homes, the 16 kW1 unit is equipped with new, patented Symphony® II Power Management technology, so you can power all your home's electrical needs; up to two 5-ton AC units; easily and automatically. The 16 kW system is powered by a commercial-grade Vanguard™ engine and backed by one of the industry's most comprehensive 5-year parts & 3-year labor limited warranty.

Why the Symphony® II Power Management System? Well, not all appliances are powered equally. Some, such as your central air conditioner, electric clothes dryer, electric stovetop, oven, or whirlpool tub, require a large amount of power to start up or operate properly.

Managed Whole House

With Briggs & Stratton’s Symphony II Power Management System, our 16 kW1 Standby Generator can manage the power of a home up to 5,000 square feet that has up to two 3-ton air conditioners.

We Recommend Based on Reliability

Dunn Electrical Service chooses to work with only two generator manufacturers for a reason. When it matters most you can rely on Briggs & Stratton and General Electric brand generators to deliver power when your service area experiences a power outage. You can shop based on price however, we recommend based on experience.

Dunn Electrical Service stands behind these recommendations based on hands-on experience being on-site with customers when an (alternate brand) generator fails to deliver power in an emergency. Your safety and the convenience of having continuous power is a matter of reliability and confidence rather than which generator is the lowest price. Lower priced products can often set you up to fail when it matters most. Call or contact us to today to discuss your needs, so we can make a solid recommendation to meet or exceed your emergency power needs.
