I asked that question twice to Generac and never got an answer. Just had it installed so don't know exactly what will happen during an outage. I am a senior and my husband has dementia so this was difficult for me. Powers up to 8 circuits but I had no idea that certain things use more than 1 circuit so I am not going to have as much power to rooms that I thought I would. Also very disappointed with Home Depot. Reached out to them for someone to install and never got a response. Took me 3 weeks to find an electrician to do the work. So hopefully it works once we lose power.

    How is the engine cooled?  If water cooled, is water circulating all the time? Or is a solenoid valve tripped open when running?

    Asked by: RonR
    Generac model #6998 is an air-cooled generator. You can find more information online, https://www.generac.com/all-products/generators/home-backup-generators/powerpact/powerpact-6998-8-circuit-switch

    We live off-grid with Schneider solar system and would not need to implement the transfer panel. Instead need AGS (Automatic Generator Startup module) to signal the generator to come on when needed. Can it be triggered with 2 or 3 wire start?

    Asked by: Centreview Island
    Yes, can be, but refer to owner's manual and installation manual. It is stated in those how it is done.

    Why can’t I just connect the generator to my main panel instead of having to choose 8 circuits to connect to supplied panel? I would just have to know which equipment I could or could not use while the generator is running.

    Asked by: Dennis
    For the automatic transfer switch, the limited circuit transfer switch is not service rated and cannot be used to power the entire panel. If more power is drawn than the switch is rated for, it is a fire hazard. It would fail to meet the electric code and likely would not be covered by homeowners insurance. Your alternative is a service rated transfer switch that can feed the entire panel. Although it would still limited by either your generator size and/or your service amperage.

    I'm interested in model 6998, however the product overview doesn't state that this unit will start automatically during a power failure. Will this model auto start and auto transfer loads?

    Asked by: Scottie
    Yes it will start automatically and transfer the loads a few moments after hydro power is lost.

    What is the noise level (full load and no load) on this unit in dBA and how far away is that reading taken?

    Asked by: backwoodsguy
    Generac does not publish decibel levels for portable generators, as there is no industry standard. If you would like to hear the unit for yourself, we recommend visiting your local retailer store to have them run a unit for you to gauge the sound level.

    Can I install Generac Natural Gas Generator inside the House , in the Basement ?

    Asked by: Rudolf
    No, it burns fuel and gives off gas fumes. Also, it is very noisy. Best to contact Generac for issues like this.
