Questions & Answers

can this be out in the rain or snow?

can this be out in the rain or snow?
Asked by: Bob
During inclement weather, such as a storm, please be advised that we don't recommend running the unit in a downpour or storm. However if you need to run it in rain or snow, there are a few steps that should be taken. Please note that any damage to the unit due to running it in the rain/snow is not covered by a warranty. 1. The unit needs to be properly grounded. Local codes will dictate what that means for your area. 2. The alternator end and the control panel should be facing away from the prevailing winds to prevent water entering the alternator or control panel. 3. The unit should never be run indoors or in an enclosed area. The unit does need to be outside with a minimum distance of five feet all around the unit (including the top) for airflow.

Asked by: Dana
The size of the generator needed is dictated by the power requirements of all of the circuits and appliances you want to run. The power needed for many large items in your home such as air conditioners, water heaters, and other appliances varies widely. We recommend working with an authorized Generac dealer who will be better equipped to determine the best size generator for your home.
