Cummins Onan R20A/AC residential standby generator wins top quality award from Builder magazine for second year in a row

For the second year in a row, the RS20A/AC residential generator from Cummins Onan has been ranked No. 1 in Quality in Builder magazine’s 2011 Brand Use survey.  As a result, Cummins Onan has been awarded a 2012 Brand Leader Award by the magazine for the category of residential generators, a distinction the brand also earned in 2011.

Builder magazine is a leading publication covering residential construction in the U.S. The Brand Use Study is conducted each year by the magazine’s publisher, Hanley-Wood, and Readex, a nationally recognized independent research company. The study asks over 10,000 builders, builder-developers, and general contractors about their brand preferences in some 80 product categories.  For each product category, one question the respondents answered was: How would you rate the QUALITY of each brand you are familiar with?

Chad Boutet, marketing manager, Residential and Commercial Property for Cummins Power Generation, said, “We are gratified to receive this recognition again from home builders and Builder Magazine. It reinforces the outstanding reputation of the RS20A/AC, which has also been recognized as the quietest in a comparison of four leading competitors and has received a Gold Award in Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s (CSE’s) Product of the Year Competition.”

The RS20A residential standby generator can run on either natural gas or propane and is linked directly to the homeowner’s permanent fuel supply. The unit is permanently installed outdoors, but it offers an in-home display, email notification and remote monitoring via the Internet. The unit comes with a 5-year,

2,000-hour limited warranty, is EPA and CARB Emissions Certified and is designed and manufactured in the USA.
