Q:What size of natural gas line is required
by|May 28, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hey John, thanks for reaching out! The size of the natural gas line you’ll need depends on the size of your generator, the distance between your generator and the fuel source, what kind of pipe you’re using, and any local codes that may be in place. To ensure your generator is installed with all these variables taken into account, we always recommend scheduling a free no-obligation at-home consultation with your local Generac dealer here: https://www.generac.com/prepare/installation/

    Q:How do I calculate how many watts I need to run my house? What is the math used?
    by|May 22, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hey Karen, thanks for reaching out! The basic formula for calculating wattage is Volts x Amps = Watts. To accurately calculate your energy demands, you'll need to consider the total wattage of all appliances and systems during peak usage that you’ll want to power during an outage. It's essential to understand the difference between starting and running wattage, how your usage changes with the season (AC in the summer vs. heat pumps in the winter), and how consumption needs may increase in the future. We recommend consulting a certified Generac Dealer who can assess your specific needs. You can schedule a free, no-obligation in-home consultation here: https://www.generac.com/prepare/installation/#RAQform Additionally, the National Electric Code offers approved resources for calculating load consumption that may be helpful to you.

      Q:How many amps
      by|Jan 12, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi, Rich. The amperage output for this model would depend on the voltage of the electrical system it is connected to. For example, at 240 volts, the maximum output amperage would be 108.3 amps (26,000 watts ÷ 240 volts = 108.3 amps). Should you have further questions, our Customer Support Team may be reached at 888-436-3722.

        by|Jan 12, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Our home standby generators are factory-set to run on natural gas, however; at the time of installation, a generator can be reconfigured to run on liquid propane.

          Love my new security from South Louisiana Hurricanes!
          I’ve been waiting a long time to purchase my Generac Whole Home Generator. Having my new generator gives me a great sense of security. Since I was a child with Hurricane Betsy, we’ve never left our home for any of Louisiana’s hurricanes, We suffered thru the power outages and the heat and lots of ice chest full of food and drink. Pulling electrical cords and fans thru our home. And now we’ll be living in absolute comfort from the moment our power goes out to the moment our wonderful lineman restore power to our grid. Thank you Generac for having such a necessary product at a very affordable price.

            This generator has already done it's job!
            The SPS team was amazing, from start to finish. I did my research before choosing the type of generator and company to do the install and support. I made the decision to go with Generac and SPS after talking to 4 other companies. I am a single homeowner and trust in the product and the company is paramount. I have had the system installed for less than 3 weeks and it's already been used twice. Power goes out quite a bit in my area and I also travel so knowing the system will work and that I am notified of each action the generator takes. I would recommend this product to anyone and the Specialized Power Services company to do the install!

              Great product, great installation
              I did a lot of research into backup generators, some had a few more bells and whistles so was the cost. From what I found Generac stood above them all. The 18Kw will meet out needs. We went through ESCON Power Solutions, Bay City, MI for the purchase and installation. They went above and beyond to make sure the installation was done correctly (a couple of unplanned challenges were found during the installation). I highly recommend them if you are looking for a Generac dealer.

                Great asset for Power Outage
                Very happy with my generator. Gave it all 5 stars except for quality. Upon activation, had to have the LCD display replaced. Took it about a week to get and fix but, I still am very happy.

                  We thought long and hard about this investment.
                  My husband and I have been pondering the idea of a standby generator for a while. It's a big investment and we take that seriously. After lots of talking and doing our homework, we finally decided to 'take the plunge'. Generac was highly rated so I called the company. They set us up with a local electrician/installer and from there the process was seamless. To be honest, we found out that these are very popular so it took a while from start to finish, but we were forewarned so all was well. About one month after installation we lost power and OMG what a comfort!! We had electricity!!! It worked as advertised and we couldn't be happier! Like I said, it's a big expense, but the peace of mind is well worth it.

                    Best purchase ever
                    Been without power in past and had to get portable generators out, run drop cords and decide what to run. Now when the power is out, I just sit back and wait a minute the Generac starts. up and all is back to normal. Already experienced a power outage since I've had it installed. It was nice sitting back and life was restored to normal without leaving my chair. Knowing everything is going to be alright is a great peace of mind. Highly recommend especially if you have medical equipment that needs power like me. Go the extra step and raise it up off the ground like you see in pictures, will make it easier to service and keep water out during most storms. My set up powers the house and shop also with one unit.

                      It was worth the wait.
                      We finally had our Generac automatic standby generator installed 1/20/2023. Supply chain issues (every company we quoted also had some delays) and our gas companies meter upgrade took additional time but the big day came and we are delighted. Our dealer only does Generac installs and servicing and it was quite a sight to watch them work. Anyway, my wife and I (and our dealer) have the My Link app on our phones, making it very easy to check the units status, history, notifications, etc. Also, this product was NOT made in China but right here in Wisconsin. Great job Generac!

                        The Generac was a wonderful educational experience.
                        A 3-man crew came to install a 14kW 200amp Generac Model 7225. The work of the crew was fascinating as I followed how each step of the installation was done in an orderly manner. There was stone decor around the home that the crew had to remove in order to access the main power as well as an area for the slab foundation to support the Generac. Once the outside work was done in these areas, the stones were replaced as though nothing was ever disturbed. Downstairs, the electrical cord from the Generac to the Transfer Switch was neatly installed along with the Transfer Switch Box and it's wiring set up. When everything was installed and checked over, the technician explained how the Backup System will work in the event of a power outage. He demonstrated the System by shutting off the main circuit as the lights went out, but within in few seconds we heard the Generac start up and the Transfer Switch kick in supplying power to the house as the lights came back on! After explaining what happened, the tech switched the main circuit back on as though the main power was restored from the electric company and we heard the click of the Transfer Switch shutting down the Generac. All this within seconds! Quite impressive in my opinion!! Thank you, Generac and the professional crew doing a beautiful job!

                            Excellent Product
                            Had a Guardian 24kw generator installed about 1 yr ago by Ambrose Electric. Installation went very smoothly and has a very acceptable appearance. Initial oil change and service check is simple. Everything is easy to get at. We have had two short term power outages since installation and everything works pefectly. Our house is total electric and we have no problem living normally during outages. Well pump, water heater, clothes dryer and electric heat all operate normally although we do take care to limit burner/oven usage on the stove if the electric heat is in use, for example. The Generac handles it all with no strain. My one complaint is with the exercise program. It runs for only five minutes under no load. This causes moisture in the air to condense into the oil. Particularly in the winter. I spent 50 yrs as a Diesel and heavy equipment mechanic. Moisture in oil is never acceptable, despite what Generac claims. Originally set to exercise weekly I changed it to monthly and on those days I trip the main breaker to put the unit under load for 30-60 minutes. Unit is exercised and the oil stays moisture free. All-in-all an excellent unit and it is great not having to get up in the middle of a winter night, or any other time, and go hook up a portable generator.
