  7 Questions
Q: Can the air cooled unit operate in warm weather conditions and not overheat. We just had a 122 degree day and if the electricity had failed, would this generator be able to handle the load in the heat?
by Gene H. from California on June 27, 2016

A: Thank you for contacting us.

Generac Air-Cooled Standby Generators are tested in accordance to UL 2200 standards with an operating temperature of -20 ºF (-29 ºC) to 122 ºF for normal operating range

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Q: Should I pour a concrete base to place this unit on or can you place on a level dirt pad?
by Jim from Iowa on September 03, 2015

A: Thank you for contacting Electric Generators Direct.

I would advise pouring a concrete base. Or I would advise looking into a GenPad.

Q: Can aluminum wire be used to feed the breaker on a Generac generator?
by Glenn from New Jersey on December 11, 2014

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

When wiring the generator it must be in accordance with local jurisdiction and codes. If ALUMINUM conductors are used, apply corrosion inhibitor to conductors.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: What is the clearance needed on all four sides of the unit for proper operation?

by Mark C. from Connecticut on July 24, 2014

A: Page 11 of the Installation Guide shows proper installation distances according to NFPA and manufacturers recommendations. The guide is available on our site under the specs tab in the download documentation section......

Q: If I'm not around when my home standby generator is running, what type of protections systems do the Generac units have?
by Josh from New Jersey on November 13, 2013

A: The generator may have to run for long periods of time with no operator present to
monitor the engine/generator conditions. Therefore, the generator is equipped with a number of systems to automatically shut down the unit to protect it against potentially damaging conditions. Some of these systems are as follows:

• Low Oil Pressure Sensor
• High Temperature Sensor
• Overcrank Sensor
• Overspeed Sensor
• RPM Sensor
• Under-frequency Sensor
• Undervoltage Sensor
• Overvoltage Sensor
• Internal Failure Sensor
• Low Battery Voltage Alarm

The control panel contains a display which alerts the operator when a fault condition occurs. The above list is not all inclusive. For more information about alarms and control panel operation, see Section 3 (Operation) in the owner's manual.

Q: What type of oil should I use in my Generac home standby generator?
by Jim from Illinois on November 11, 2013

A: The maintenance section in the Generac's home standby owner's manual lists that the oil type is based on temperature ranges specific in your area.....

SAE-30 above 32º F (0º C)
10W-30 between 40º and -10º F (4º and -23º C)
Synthetic 5W-30 for all temperature ranges

All new models come with SAE-30 oil in them and have been test run at the factory for 25 hours and no break-in is required. The first oil change would be at 2 years or 200 hours, whichever comes first.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: I'm not sure if this falls into the repair area but, I'm concerned about the sound this generator produces. Is there a way to lower that? Is there sound proofing approved for use for the interior walls of this type of home standby? My neighbors bedroom window will be 20ft from where I plan to install the generator. I would prefer doing something inside the generator as apposed to some type of fencing or other external methods.

by Mark H. from New Jersey on October 23, 2013

A: The manufacturers make every effort to reduce the sound of their generators as best they can keeping within NFPA and UL requirements. There are currently no options or parts available to install inside home standby systems to reduce their db(A) levels.

Your only option is location or sound barriers installed around the unit while keeping within NFPA and manufacturers distance requirements for proper fire protection, air intake and exhaust output.

We recommend consulting with your local inspector or AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) as to the specific local code requirements.

What A Great Deal . Now I Can't Wait For The Power To Go Out...
Our power was out for 3 days and we went through 6 gallons of gas with the old generator. So when my boyfriend was out of power for 5 days he and 6 of his neighbors ordered generators from your company as well as I did. Mine was delivered within 5 days and was hooked up within 3. his was delivered within 5 days also. Thanks so much for such a great deal and product.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
Cons: none
