    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended Whole House Generator For most homes, this is a "whole house" generator. Operates fairly quietly and efficiently. Kicks in very quickly with a power outage - you barely notice when the transfer switch kicks in. FIND AN ELECTRICIAN WHO IS EXPERIENCED WITH GENERACs and you will save time and money. When you factor all the other fixed costs and extras, getting the top end 22kW vs. say the 16kW makes a lot of sense for a difference of $1,000: get the peace of mind of a whole house generator. There are extras - you will need a transfer switch which your electrician can help you size, a battery (trickle charged from your home wiring), plus a cable run from the generator to the transfer switch. For liquid propane (LP) you need a propane conversion kit. You should also get a battery warmer and oil filter warmer - also sold separately. You can also buy a Generac cement pad for it to sit on - and it's good to bolt it down to a cement pad to guard against vibrations. With all that and the costs for an electrician, licensed gas fitter for the natural gas or LP line, and utility inspection, budget at least $10,000 all-in. If propane, you should have a 500 gallon/1800 litre tank. Buying the unit from Home Depot will also save you money vs. buying from a dealer/installer. The newest units come with WiFi and you can download an app to get monthly usage info. This is my second rural home with a 22kW Generac - a must when you have to rely on frequent power outages on rural poles and wires.

Delivery went well, the freight hauler helped me get the generator on the concrete pad I'd poured in advance. Hookup went well based on the included instructions. I did the work myself, and it turned out perfectly. Nice job Generac!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac Generator 22000 w Very happy with our purchase of a Generac generator and services provided for installation by Home Dept and Prestige Electric. It certainly gives us peace of mind knowing that should we have power outages even if we are not home that the automatic switch over will handle everything for us.

    Looking at the 22kw generac generator for our new home; Getting different opinions as to which automatic transfer switch I need for this generator; 100 vs 200 amp? Thank you!

    Asked by: elise
    100 Amp at 240 volt. there a two types of automatic transfer switches in 100 Amp one is regular other is good for service entrance ( if your main service is 100 amp transfer switch is installed line side of your main switch ) and is almost double in price. RXSC100A3 is the part number for regular one.

    My home is a 400 amp single phase 120/240 service. What model number transfer switch do I need to purchase with the 22,000 watt generator?

    Asked by: Benji
    You would need either the model #RXSC400A3 or the #RXSW400A3 transfer switch with your home and the Generac model #7042. We recommend working with an authorized Generac dealer to determine the best setup for your home. If you need assistance finding a local dealer, we recommend using our dealer locator found here: http://www.generac.com/dealer-locator
