Customer Questions & Answers

I Have a 100AMP Electric service with2 circuits as spares If I get a 14 Kv and a 200AMP transfer switch would it overload or would it work well

Trying to buy this system with future concerns that I may have to upgrade my present 100AMP Electric panel to 200 Amp Service for my addition
Asked by: Manny
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.

How loud is the unit and would it be annoying to neighbors?
Asked by: Anonymous
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.

If I purchased a 14 kW GENERAC generator can I get it with a 150 AMP transfer switch instead of the 200 AMP Transfer switch?

Asked by: Anonymous
I don't know why you would want to. The 200 Amp Transfer Switch is fine in a 150 Amp installation. As a matter of fact, if I were switching a load under power I would prefer to have the 200 Amp. If I ever wanted to upgrade my 150 Amp service to a 200 Amp service, I wouldn't have to change my transfer switch. To me it's a "What's not to like?" You also have the price comparison. You can get this package for $3429 asking price. What is the cost of buying the generator and a lesser 150 Amp Transfer separately? Will it cost more to get less? Hope this helps.

14,000-Watt Automatic Standby Generator with 200-Amp SE Rated Transfer Switch-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product does what it says it will do Very happy with purchase wish I had done it 15 years ago could not get my husband to agree to it.. Runs like a gem has a little qlich had a bad fuse so it ran the battery down and would then not start the generator. But got that replaced and it runs just beautifully. The out side of the box is very pleasing to the eye.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Generator and cost I am very satified with the product and highly recomend them. The price to actual use will be hard to justify however - when you need it it seems god sent! - Generac is not friendly to anyone in the aftermarket for technical information.
Date published: 2011-09-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unit is priceless when in Use! The unit (14kw) was packaged well and came with all directions included. I ran all the wires in conduit and only left the direct connections up to the liscenced electrician. He cost about $500.00. So total price on the unit was $3,900 Installed. Only downside is I was told it is a 200amp transfer switch but the generator only housed a 60amp breaker meaning the load was half of what I thought I was buying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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
