Would the specifics of the transformer affect the volume of the sound from this doorbell?

The doorbell sound we have with this Heath Zenith model is not loud enough for us! An electrician suggested that the transformer we have installed from our old doorbell is a number lower than the one specified. Sorry I can't remember the numbers i.e. ours may be a 12 and the doorbell may need a higher number transformer, i.e. 16. If we change the transformer will the doorbell sound louder?

Answer: 
Likely to improve the sound. A higher voltage should retract the plunger further into the electromagnet thus allowing the striker more travel and speed to hit the chime bar. Changing the transformer should be easy if you can locate it I'm the basement where it is usually place. When you find it, TURN OF THE BREAKER that powers it. Test the doorbell - it should be mute.

Answer: 
no it would still be junk. Cheap out, and you
get cheap. you should have taken it out. An new larger unit with larger tone bars will give you a louder doorbell.Probably no reason to change the transformer, the strikerr is not gonna hit with enough more force to make thje bell louder. Get a new electrician, he doesnt know beans.

Answer: 
Older doorbell transformers may have been 10-volts. The newer transformers are 16-volt. The 16-volt transformer is pushing 50% harder than the 10-volt transformer. Therefore, the doorbell will be louder with the 16-volt transformer.

Answer: 
Read the door bells specs, if it calls for a 16v transformer and your only pushing it with a 12v,
your not supplying it with enough power. You need full power to give it the kick it needs to really make it audible.

Hello MomAH, and welcome to Q&A!
As per the owners manual, the power must be supplied from a 16 Volt AC, 10 Watt or a 16 Volt AC, 15 Watt transformer.

The product description indicates ". . . requires a transformer". What is a transformer? Is it something I need to purchase separately?

Answer: 
yes it needs a transformer. A transformer lowers the 120 volt to a safe 24 volt that will not harm you if touched

Answer: 
A transformer is included in the box. If you already have a doorbell that just stopped working, you probably only need the bell. Check out a YouTube video on how to fix a doorbell or Google for information.

Answer: 
if you previously had a bell there is a transformer already there, which should work fine. It also doesnt come with a switch, or a button you might call it. If you dont know what a transformer is, you might call an electrician. The bell has to have like wires and power to run it. Not hard to do, but you should be familiar with electricity. I would be embarrassed to die from installing as doorbell.

Answer: 
The transformer takes 110-volt power and converts it to 16-volt (safe-low-voltage) power. It is a separate item. If a doorbell is being replaced, there is probably a transformer and wiring already installed.

If you have a working door chime already, then your home already has a transformer. If you are adding a door chime for the first time (and your home doesn't already have a door chime), then you will need to purchase and install a transformer. Heath Zenith Wired Door Chime Transformer Model # 119 will work with any Heath Zenith wired door chime. Kits are also sold that include all the components needed for set up such as Heath Zenith Wired Door Chime Kit Model # 120-A.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by door chime didnt work and i'm returning it... seemed pretty cheap October 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your money I ordered this product online after the one that came with my new home went out after only a year. It's suppose to be a two tone chime but mine only rings one chime. The cover just kinda sits over the chime and moves around out of level. This product couldn't be made any cheaper. It's not worth $10.00 let alone $20.00. Next time I'll spend a little more and maybe get something worthwhile. I bought this chime to match the size of the previous one, to avoid tough up painting ect... Wasted my time and money ! February 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by My guest can finnally stop banging on my door Installation really was simple and ten minutes later my door bell is once again chiming. Price was the primary driver although style was a factor. June 2, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Door chime Easy to install; good value for the money; can't go wrong for the price April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by it rings Nothing fancy; I installed it to replace a non-working bell; not a decorating nightmare; it required some spackling and sanding because it did not exactly cover the old bell's installation space, as expected. nothing was wrong with the transformer so easy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A reasonable replacement I bought a 20 year old house and the doorbell would "ding" but not "dong". This door chime was very easy to install - nothing fancy - it goes "ding" "dong". It meets my expectations December 10, 2014
