Answer
Below is a link to the Install Manual that will cover the pipe sizing using LP. I recommend checking with a plumber or LP company for installation of the gas line.

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?

Answer

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

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Should I pour a concrete base to place this unit on or can you place on a level dirt pad?

Answer
Thank you for contacting Electric Generators Direct.

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

Can aluminum wire be used to feed the breaker on a Generac generator?

Answer
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.

What type of oil should I use in my Generac home standby generator?
Jim 
from Illinois 
November 11, 2013
Read Response +
Answer
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 32 F (0 C)
10W-30 between 40 and -10 F (4 and -23 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.

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.

Answer
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.
