Norwall PowerSystems: Briggs & Stratton Extends Air-Cooled Standby Generator Warranty to 10 Years

Briggs & Stratton Extends Industry Leading Standby Generator Warranty on Parts, Labor, and Travel

LAKE HAVASU CITY, ARIZONA – 4 Jun, 2017 – Briggs & Stratton includes a 10-year manufacturer warranty on select air-cooled standby generators for customers who purchase before June 30, 2017. The company already provides an industry leading 5-5-5 (Parts-Labor-Travel) warranty on residential standby products. The limited time offer extends the warranty on parts, labor, and travel for an additional 5 years making the warranty a 10-10-10. Residential standby generators include 12-kilowatt, 17-kilowatt, and 20-kilowatt models sold by Norwall PowerSystems ( and are highlighted in the product catalog.

“The Briggs & Stratton Warranty is already one of the best in the home standby industry. Adding five years to the guarantee makes it an outstanding value for our customers,” says Travis LaVallie of Norwall PowerSystems.

Many residential standby manufacturers offer a limited consumer warranty that only covers parts for the length of the warranty—usually just 5 years. They limit labor and mileage coverage to just two years. Some claim a 5-year warranty on parts, but only cover a few major components for 5 years and just 2 years on the parts most likely to fail. Parts are only part of the cost to repair a generator. Labor and mileage can make up a substantial portion of the bill for any necessary repairs which makes the Briggs & Stratton 5-5-5 warranty unique in that it covers all parts, labor, and unlimited travel for 5 years. The extended warranty adds 5 years to all parts, labor, and travel at no cost to the buyer.

Standby Generators are permanently connected—much like furnaces and central air conditioners—to a home’s electrical system via an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS). Like furnaces and air conditioners operate automatically to heat and cool a home, standby generators operate automatically in the event of a power outage. The standby generator system detects the outage the moment it happens, starts the generator and runs for a few seconds to stabilize speed and prepare to take the full electrical load. The automatic transfer switch isolates the utility power lines and begins supplying electrical power from the generator. When the utility restores power, the system reverts to utility power and shuts the standby generator down.

Each home and family has different needs including electrical power. Briggs & Stratton bundles different air-cooled standby generator sizes with automatic transfer switches (separate warranty) to meet a variety of needs from small to large homes and different electrical needs. A 12-kilowatt generator may suffice for some homes, while another needs a 20-kilowatt generator. Norwall PowerSystems offers a Buyer’s Guide that helps homeowners decide on the type of standby generator system required and a Sizing Guide to determine which capacity generator to buy. Different ATS types and their various current capacities control the distribution of power throughout the home during an outage.
