Q: I have a large house with two 18 sear heat pumps and a well. Am I to believe the Briggs & Stratton 30207 - 10,000 watt generator will do the job?

Thanks,

Bart

by Bart Wright from Delaware on February 11, 2014

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

In regards to your question, proper sizing of the generator is crucial to the success of any generator installation and requires a good working knowledge of electricity and its characteristics, as well as the varying requirements of the electrical equipment comprising the load.

A certified electrician needs to be consulted for proper sizing and installation of any generator.

When analyzing the electrical load, consult the manufacturer’s nameplate on each major appliance or piece of equipment to determine its starting requirements in terms of amps and voltage which can be calculated to watts using Ohms Law (Amps x Volts = Watts).

When choosing the generator output select a rating that is approximately 20 to 25% higher than the peak load (for example, if the load is about 8 kilowatts, select a 10 kW generator).

A higher rated generator will operate comfortably at approximately 80% of its full capacity and will provide a margin of flexibility if the load increases in the future.

Note: Applications with an all-electric home, heat pump system or geothermal system require special installation procedures and a certified electrician must be contacted to evaluate and install these types of systems.

Some Tips
This is the second model like this that I have purchased from Electric Generators Direct the first was a gift to my son 2 years ago and he loves it. I ordered the second unit and received it in about a week. Arkansas Best Freight was the carrier and they weren't kind to it, there were forklift holes in two sides of the carton. The card board box looked as if it had been dropped from a bomber! After close inspection of the unit overall everything made it in pretty good shape.

Good Product
Just purchased this generator and had a transfer switch installed at my house. Generator set up easy. The only thing is the instructions tell you to add all of the oil that is shipped with the generator when the generator is actually shipped full of oil. So adding oil is not needed. Other than that it started up the first try using the electric start so the battery was charged and ready to go. When I tested it was able to run everything I needed at my house.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable

No Power During The Recent Superstorm Sandy
After going thru the storm with no power for 3 days, we said "that's not going to happen again". So, I looked for a generator and a manual switch, found both online and ordered them. Naturally they were both back ordered after the storm.

After receiving both my electrician wired it all together for me. All works great, the switch is very easy to use. However, I would have ordered the next size bigger with at least 10 circuits had I figured out the extra power of my generator and... more

Powerful, Smart Generator
I live in an exclusively electrically powered house (2 heat pumps- 2.5 tons and 5 tons, water heater, cook top, oven) in Northern Virgina. This summer we got stranded without power for a week after the June 2012 Derecho storm. I had an 8-year-old smaller B&S (5.25kW) generator in the garage (bought after hurricane Isabelle for a different size house) that made the situation somewhat bearable. We had a fridge, some lights, a fan and TV (yes, cable lines were up even though power lines... more

Finally Hooked Up
After Hurricane Sandy, we decided not to be caught off guard again. I looked online and found the Briggs 30207, 10,000 watt generator to be a good deal for the money compared to the others. And yes- there are many.

I ordered it and a few weeks later it arrived. The wheel kit and foot rests had to be put on the frame. The wheel kit was a breeze as were the foot rests. The oil level was almost full , so after topping it off and adding a little gas it started right up, no problem.

I went... more

Rocky Mountain High
I live at 9,000 feet in Colorado, and several times, mostly in the early spring, we have our heaviest snows and I have been without electricity for several days.

Not a pleasant experience when you do not have an alternative heat source other than a furnace. So I decided enough of that.

The generator was delivered to the trucking company within a few days of the order. The trucker was kind enough to make arrangements to deliver to a place other than my home, since the roads are not... more

Brian - North Jersey
Purchased the Briggs & Stratton 30207 following superstorm Sandy and have two comments to make. The unit comes with 30 weight oil which in my experience is fine for warm weather operation but not the best for sub freezing winter temperatures.

I believe a multi-grade would be preferable. The second comment concerns maintenance for oil changes. As delivered, the unit does not allow for a neat oil removal process. The crankcase has a plug which when removed allows the oil to drain onto the... more

First of all I would like to thank EGD for their customer service. I had the generator in 3 days .... had minor issues after assembly and was taken care of right away. Thanks Chris.

After wiring the house with 6/3 with a ground .... I started up the generator and ran the house for 6 hours just to make sure the generator ... and my wiring was fine. Wanted to find out now ... rather than later ... that I might have had an issue and everything was flawless.

Generator ran great and was... more

Waiting For Next Outage
Jim was very helpful to me in making this selection. Unit arrived quickly but I had to meet driver a mile away from my home (no way a semi was going to make it to my driveway). Hauled unit home with ATV and trailer. Wheel kit and legs easily installed. Unit already had most of the oil in it so only had to add small amount. Engine started right up.

Two initial problems with unit that prevent me from giving a 5-star rating:

1) There were no nuts installed on the alternator shock... more

Check The Oil Level
I haven't had to rely on the unit yet, but it ran smoothly on the first pull. Important thing to remember though, as another reviewer said a few months ago: Manual says to add both supplied bottles of oil (26oz. and 18oz.) to the engine which is supposed to be shipped without any oil. Well I could not even add the whole 26oz. bottle and the dipstick read full.

The engine is supposed to have a 48oz capacity. So I figured I'd run it a few minutes and it would occupy the filter, nooks and... more

Happy Customer
Assembly was easy and fast and I didn't have to wait long for a power outage.

When it came, my generator surpassed my expectations and powered my stove, oven, 2 fridges and lights- all at once. I was the envy of the neighborhood.

I am a happy customer.
