    Most back-up generators are not deeignsd to keep an entire house provided with electricity; they are deeignsd to keep essential circuits energized.In most cases, you would want to keep your refrigerator, furnace (or AC), well (if you don’t have City Water), sump pump, ejector pump, and perhaps two other circuits powered (bathrooms are often included, as well as one of the two kitchen small appliance circuits). If your water heater is electric, you will want to provide power for that, as well as any gas appliance that requires electricity to ignite the burner (mostly, the water heater you can light the burners of a gas cook-top or range with a match).A typical electric water heater requires around 4,500 volt-amps (Watts); an electric dryer is a minimum of 5,000 v-a, the general lighting load for a 2,400 S.F. house is 7,200 v-a, your refrigerator is allowed to be run off of one of your kitchen small appliance branch circuits, so figure another 1,500 to keep one going, and about 1,500 for a bathroom, most electric cooking appliances will be okay if you figure about 8,000 v-a, other motor loads, like a gas furnace, will add about 1,176 v-a per horse power, and throw in another 300 v-a for motor start-up loading.To try to keep your home operating in an emergency (and, by definition, emergencies are not convenient; so don’t expect to have full use of your creature comforts); you would need around 30,000 Watts.Be sure to include an automatic transfer switch for the generator. Also, depending on what type of emergency you are preparing for, keep in mind that the naturaL gas most home generators run on may not be available. That is why hospitals and other buildings that are required to have emergency stand=by power systems are also required to have on-site fuel storage for their generators.Lastly, remember that most communities have noise ordinances that regulate what the noise level at the property line is limited to. The generator will have to meet these requirements, under full load conditions to pass an inspection. The noise ordinances apply in emergency conditions, as they do at any other time. If you are the only one with power during an extended power outage, believe me; the neighbors will be complaining about the noise your generator is making. And, after the third or fourth call, the police will be so fed up that they will gladly start to write expensive tickets.That’s another good reason to keep the size of the generator below what it will take to keep your house functioning at a normal level.

    Fermont Model MEP-007B generator I need some information on the functions of this generator operators manual… engine manual… governor controls…. etc. Thanks Tom 352-816-4452
