FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do you size a generator?
To accurately asses how what size generator you are in need of, an electrician can apply an amp meter to the various circuits or appliances that you prefer to have fully operational under in an emergency power situation. We recommend the amp draw be determined as the appliance 'starts ups.
How long does it take to install a Emergency Home generator?
7kW, 12kW and 15kW air-cooled units come with a comprehensive installation kit and can take anywhere from 4-5 hours to install on a composite mounting pad.
Liquid-cooled 15kW to 45kW generators generally require 14-16 hours over a 2-day period. The size and weight of Liquid-cooled units require a stronger mounting service. Typically a concrete slab will need to be poured and time allowed to set properly for installation to continue.
If additional or extended runs of conduit or gas piping is required or the unit placement is a substantial difference from the incoming gas or electrical service the length of time for installation can vary greatly.
What if I have 200-amp service in my home, can I chose a generator that has a 100-amp automatic transfer switch?
It is always recommended that emergency circuits be isolated by the emergency load center. An isolated sub-panel will prevent the possibility of the generator becoming overloaded. Thus, the system will respond automatically.
How much fuel does a Residential Emergency Home Standby generator use?
Chart above is based on consumption rate of 50%. Consumption rates will vary depending on your usage at any given time.
Will 200-amp automatic transfer switches be available for the air-cooled models, and the 16 kW and 22 kW liquid-cooled Residential Emergency Home Standby generators?
Yes, they are available.
