The generator needed for each home’s configuration is not determined by the size of the home, but rather by the size of the loads requiring back-up power. Please note that Genreac’s XG7000E portable generator, model number 5798, features an AC rated output of 7,000 running watts, and a rated VAC amperage of 58.3 amps at 120v, and 29.2 amps at 240v. Moreover, the model 5798 features two 120v, 20A, 5-20R duplex outlets protected by two 20A, push-to-reset circuit breakers, along with one 120/240v, 30A, L14-30R Twist Lock Outlet. The Twist Lock Outlet is protected by two 30A, push-to-reset circuit breakers. We would recommend ensuring that any loads that you intend to power with the generator not exceed these ratings. To ensure that you are utilizing the appropriate generator and configuration for your back-up power needs, we would recommend working with a local independent authorized dealer in your local area.
