  1. Great Stand By Generator

    Posted by Tim J. in NJ on 23rd Nov 2012

    I purchased this generator because we loose power a lot. After reviewing all the different models I.E. 8KW thru 20KW I decided on the 10KW model along with the 200amp ATS with load shedding. I installed the generator myself which took several days. The installation was simple as far as the hookup, what took time was running the gas line, wiring in the ATS to the meter socket and wiring from the ATS to the service panel. I pulled permits for the installation which is what made the installation take several days due to inspections etc. The installation manual I thought was easy to follow, straight forward and easy to understand. I looked hard at fuel consumption as these generators are a bit piggish on gas, my hookup was to natural gas. If you look at the different fuel consumption rates and look at what you pay for natural gas, do the math and you will see what the generator will cost you a day to run. the 10KW generator at my rate per cu/ft of gas will cost me approx $75 a day a full load. Now keep in mind that you will not be running at full load all the time but it will give you an idea what to expect. The bigger the generator the more fuel so keep that in mind when you decide on a generator. 10KW will easily run my house which is 3k sq ft, 2 furnaces, well pump, flat panel TV's, 2 frigs, etc. I have a gas water heater and stove so my biggest power hogs are the 2 A/C units which is were the load shedding comes into play. If enough power is available the ATS will allow the A/C to run. Very cool option and allows you to get a smaller generator at a lower price, better on fuel but still have full house backup. I ran the break in, and ran the house on generator power for 45min and was able to run everything I wanted to with no problem. The generator is very quit, when it was running I was able to hold a conversation without shouting standing right next to it. Very impressed with how quit it runs. So for now I say its a keeper. I have several neighbors looking into getting them as well. Also Norwall was great to order from and I received the generator sooner then they said I would. Also the shipping company is only suppose to drop the generator off at the end of the driveway, but the delivery guy had a pallet jack and did bring it into my garage for me. Thanks delivery guy!! Now the next power outage I'll be ready... Giddy Up!!!!
