In my February 17th answer I mentioned "Disconnect Switch" and the "ATS". In the event that you don't already know, The "SE Rated Transfer Switch" is commonly referred to as an "ATS" or "Automatic Transfer Switch". Inside this 200 Amp SE Rated Transfer Switch is a 200 Amp Double Pole Circuit Breaker AND it serves as a "Disconnect Switch". So I just wanted to tell you that those three terms are all referencing the same item.
It is also the reason that - unless you have a way to shut off power to your structure ahead of where you install this - this will become "your first point of disconnect."
It's a lot of information and sometimes hard to explain as a brief answer.
Hope this helps.

I don't fully understand your question, so just let me say this. You could make this purchase.
In order to install the 200 Amp ATS you need to disconnect from your utility power and have your electrical installation inspected before it will be allowed to be reconnected. This would allow for the conductors in your "riser / lateral" to be upgraded to 200 Amp AND provide a disconnect switch. # With the disconnect switch you can upgrade your 100 Amp load center later by merely turning the generator to Off AND turning the disconnect switch off. # The only drawback is that your current 100 Amp load center will require upgrades IF it is currently the first point of disconnect. # The bonding will have to be removed. The grounding will have to be moved to the ATS and sized for 200 Amp. Bonding performed in the ATS as well. Four conductors are required between the first point of disconnect and any subpanel. The grounds and neutrals need to be separated. #
The generator should have a 60 Amp double pole breaker on it's output. This ties into the 200 Amp ATS. It should not require any changes later.
Your 100 Amp load center MUST have a 100 Amp Main breaker to limit power on it's feed conductors.
I don't know what you are powering from your 100 Amp load center. My only concerns would be; electric baseboard heat for the home, an electric range, an electric hot water heater as these are major resistive loads on the generator. # The ATS should have digital load management for any other concerns. #
Not knowing what your current home draws for power # Less than 100 Amps apparently. # OR what you plan for an addition leaves a large grey area. Your fuel source and location also seem to be missing.

Larry,
I thought about my answer which, although accurate, doesn't really give you a good idea of what it may sound like. 66 db falls between what is considered to be moderate & loud. ( 60 db being moderate and comparable to a close up conversation / 70 db being loud and comparable to regular street noise. 90 db is considered very loud and is comparable to the average push lawnmower.)
The exercise cycles can be scheduled for periods of the day when neighbors might expect to hear lawnmower noise which is far louder than the generator.
Power outages are emergencies that a good neighbor should appreciate the fact that you have a generator. Not including the fact that most power outages are accompanied by weather that makes much more noise and keeps the average neighbor occupied with problems larger than the hum of your generator.
You must already have good neighbors or you wouldn't be concerned with noise levels. I'm sure you'll make the right choices.
Hope this helps.

They are far quieter than any portable generator I've ever heard.

You can also set the day and time of the weekly exercise cycle to ensure the least amount of interruption. We do make our best effort to manufacture our home standby generators to meet the noise level expectations of our customers. However, there are certain elements of operation that must be considered with an air-cooled engine driven product such as air flow requirements that limit our ability to further sound-proof the enclosure.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peace of Mind I had a portable gas generator in the past, worked well but to much work filling it up with gas. Plus messy. I purchased a 14 KW Totally happy. But I would recommend having a Winter kit installed if you live in a region that the temps drop below 30 degrees. This kit cost me around 270.00 But it keeps the Battery and oil warm. Thank God I put it in. This winter of 2013/2014 has been bitter cold and my Generac fire's right up every week for it's test. I have lost power 3 times for appox 15 minutes and when the power goes off 10 seconds later bingo .. Total power to the house... Great investment.. Great peace of mind. January 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Emergency generators, hidden costs. VT regulations require that I hire professionals to hook up both the Propane and Electrical connections. In speaking with the installers, Generacs are some of the more difficult generators to hook up. Installation costs in my case were an additional $1499.00 for parts and labor, something I had NOT budgeted for. Documentation was somewhat vague in the "things needed for installation" section of the manuals - mainly because every state has different regulations; however, there are some standard minimums that could be listed (e.g. sizes of power cable, size and number of signal cable(s)). Peace of mind knowing that I will have power and heat during the next 12-hour electrical outage is priceless. February 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not Electrically Freindly! Let me first say what a wonder product this is. Once it was connected, just turn it to auto and wait to loose power. In less than 3 weeks after installation we lost power for over an hour and the unit functioned great. The generator is designed well mechanically for ease of service. The removable front panel makes servicing a breeze and the oil drain extension is greatly appreciated. I would have given this a 5 star rating except during installation it is not electrically friendly. By this I mean there is not much room to make wiring connections. The instructions state that you need two seperate conduits for electrical connections but there is only one access hole for this. Not sure why Generac didn't put in two? There should be more room to make wiring connection at the generator. Terminal access is very limited December 29, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We needed the peace of mind and Generac supplied us with as easy to understand generator. The Generac Generator is an attractive unit. When we decided to purchase a generator I did research on line. Generac was our choice from all of the brands which we reviewed. Our electrician commented on the ease of understanding the installation instructions versus other brands which he had installed. Thankfully we haven't had a power outage yet. We feel good about having the Generac 14KW ready to pick up where Entergy leaves off. December 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Install and Quiet running ! Good instructions and support ! Runs very quiet when it runs once a week to exercise its self and charge battery.Programing was easier than I thought.I poured a concrete slab and dug the trench to my 500 gal propane tank. Pressure tested by my gas company and it fired right up. We did switch it from Natural gas to LPG. Great product for homeowners. It runs my well and whole house, It starts about 9 or 10 seconds after the power goes out. Great piece of mind for us in rural northern Ca. September 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for my electrical needs. This generator provides peace of mind knowing that power will be available when mother nature dictates otherwise. October 17, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by not yet running Although the product description clearly states that a composite base is included (and eliminates the need for a concrete slap) the base was NOT included with the shipment which we did not discover until the installation crew arrived and opened the shipping container. The electrician dug out a bed and filled with gravel and completed the electrical installation. However the plumber would not hook up the gas because he did not consider the gravel base up to code. So now a month later I am still waiting for the base and to complete the installation. In addition the battery supplied was incorrect for this generator. Extra costs incurred December 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent unit. Instructions vague. Curbside delivery didn't happen even though it was paid for. Unit itself is very easy to use manually and the auto mode is excellent. Installation is a pain since the instructions assume you have done it before. Take your time. Do your research. It's not complicated, but it's electricity you're dealing with so pay attention to the diagrams. January 22, 2014
