In response to the previous reviewer, I would not recommend trying to install this or any home standby generator yourself. It involves complicated propane and electrical connections that should only be done by licensed technicians. Make arrangements with your preferred propane company to handle all the setup. Expect around $1500 for the install. It takes several techs about a day and a half to finish all the work.

That being said, I own this generator and we survived a major widespread power outage recently in total comfort. Heat, hot water, many lights, TVs, well pump, sump pump, sewage pump, etc.

It powers on automatically in about 5 seconds after the power outage, and restores power to the items you select during installation via the included transfer switch.

Far quieter than I imagined it would be. It is under our bedroom window and was barely noticeable when sleeping. Highly recommended for peace of mind and family comfort.

The instructions are clear and the frankly it is not rocket science. The electrician will cost you some money ($1k) because he has invested time and has good experience with the technical wiring. It will save you time, but you can do it yourself if you are qualified in electricity. If you are not electricity qualified to this level, you MUST do the right thing and get a license electrician. You can watch him, double check with the code and learn something. WARNING: An incorrect installation is like a time bomb. It will seem pretty boring and safe at first, but its a matter of time to when you have to use full loads that will heat up a bad connection, cause a fire, kill you or a loved one and/or backfeed into the power lines and kill your neighbor or a power company electrician. You absolutely should use a double-throw transfer switch like the 100 Amp that Kohler sells for this unit. Another WARNING: if your electrician tells you that its cheaper to bypass the double-throw transfer switch and just connect directly to the breaker box or any other suspicious scheem through a 240V dryer plug, tell him; "NO! I want the double-throw transfer switch." It will protect you and any power line technician working during a storm. REMEBER: Even if the electrician is licensed, it is the home owners responsibility to do it correctly. There are books like Stallcup's Generator, Transformer, Motor and Compressor, which can give you a good idea on what an installation by NEC Code should look like. Also if you get yourself a NEC Code Illustrated it will have almost anything else you should know about code. I got myself a smart electrician and we did it together.

The generator is quieter than the smaller Generac 7kW unit my neighbor has.

I am out in the boonies using my kohler 14kw Res generator to charge my 24 V battery system. This system runs the house lighting and some of the appliances. I have a Sun-wize battery charger/inverter. The electrician that wired the house also set the gen up. He has alot of solar/alternate power source set up and design experience. It took a couple of hours. Almost a year now with 350+ hours and no problems.
