Champion’s got The Simple Solution™
How To Choose A Home Standby Generator
1. Square Footage: How big is your home?
This determines what size generator you need:
2. Transfer Switch (included in your package): What do you want to power?
This determines the type of transfer switch you need:
How does the WHOLE HOUSE transfer switch with DEMAND CONTROL work?
Smaller generator, smarter switch.
The process of buying a home standby generator should be easy. That’s why we created The Simple Solution™.
Our engineers poured over a large sampling of energy data from a broad cross-section of average American homes. They found that most homes throughout the day
rarely exceed an electrical demand of about 6,000W – even during peak periods.
Only during brief peak requirements that last only a few seconds (e.g. starting a central AC) does a home require more power. This is where Champion’s WHOLE HOUSE transfer switch takes over.
Your home’s circuits are divided into prioritized zones – from vital to managed. Through our DEMAND CONTROL intelligent load management technology, your home’s power requirements are monitored continuously. If your generator nears maximum capacity, pre-designated, high-demand appliances are briefly managed to avoid overload. As soon as demand lowers, the generator will automatically reacquire the appliances that are managed.
- This is totally dependent on the size (and power requirements) of your house and the size of the generator you are purchasing. It also depends on what you plan on running during an outage. The largest Champion generator will power most things you will want to run when the power is out as it is doubtful you will be using everything at once; that is why we recommend the on demand control ATS that comes with most of our packages. If you have a larger home and want to make sure everything you could ever need will run during a power outage, then we suggest you have one of our sales engineers come out and give you a custom quote for one of our larger residential generators. However, most of the larger systems start at around $25K. (Financing is available.)
We recommend to all of our clients that their generator AND ATS receive an annual service. This is important so that you can be sure your generator will run when you need it. A discounted annual service is available as an add on to all of our generator sales.
Yes, your generator will turn on automatically when your utility power is lost. That is the function of your ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch). The installation of the switch is part of your purchase package.
Champion generators are one of the quietest in the industry; and actually, more quiet than most lawnmowers.
Permits vary by city and county and are dependent upon where you live. However, as part of our purchase package we will obtain any needed permits for you and just charge you the actual fees charged by your local municipality.
Our installation package includes the installation cost for running 10 feet of electrical and 10 feet of natural gas or propane plumbing to your generator so the best place for the installation would be no further than 10 feet from your electrical box and 10 feet from and accessible gas line. There also needs to be space around your generator – we have developed a diagram that shows you how much space is needed around your generator. However, the installation location may be dependent on the zoning laws of your local municipality.
Our installation package includes up to 10 feet of electrical and up to 10 feet of natural gas or propane plumping. The tie into your electrical box and installation of the ATS switch, the tie in to your natural gas/ or propane, pulling needed permits and the preparation of the area where your generator will reside. (We will create a gravel or concrete pad.)
Champion has a generous 10 year warranty plan and as long as your generator is serviced annually you should not anticipate any issues.
Champion generators run on either natural gas or propane. The larger home generators available by a custom quote only; can also run on diesel.
