For the proper generator set operation it is crucial to build a completely leveled base-foundation, thus offering adequate seating for the unit. The base-foundation should be of sufficient strength based on the weight of each specific generator set. A proper seating does not affect the critical engine-alternator alignment. A generator set installation on an unleveled surface can cause damages such as distortions of the engine block and torsional stress to the welding and engine foundation iron.
Disclaimer:I am not an electrician. After much consulting and over sight from a licensed 25 year Master Electrician I believe these instructions to be correct and accurate for my jurisdiction. Electrical codes vary from place to place. In my place of residence home owners are allowed to do their own electrical work if it is up to code. You are responsible for any code violations, permits or awesome good stuff that comes from doing a project like this.
Proper generator installation is pretty complicated, requiring a lot of preparation ahead of time. Some generator companies will only honor the warranty if the unit is installed by a certified technician. We’re certified Cummins Onan, Kohler, and Generac installers, not to mention we have certified electricians and master electricians on our team.
Installing a Whole House Standby Generator for Your Home
I am considering installing a ~22 kw whole house generator. I have 100 amp service to my house which is marginally OK. I also want to install a 200 amp panel (requires new utility meter- mods, but underground wire is OK). I want to put a new 200 amp panel, plus the AC circuits a sub panel circuit and hot tub circuit in the new panel, and then feed a 100 amp circuit to my original panel. This would all be in the basement on the other side of the wall from the electric feed. The natural gas feed is about 6 feet away.
Guidelines for engine-generator installations.
Engine-generator sets now have countless applications, often with multiple uses within the same facility. Most engine-generator systems provide for human safety and protection of property. Typical applications include apartment and office buildings, hotels and motels, places of assembly, and government facilities. Hospitals and nursing homes have special needs vital to life, and these emergency power systems reflect these requirements.

Steam Generator Installations
Congrats on your purchase for a new steam generator. And now you are looking for the installations instructions for steam generator that you bought. The Steam Generator operates with one or two controls appropriately located inside and-or outside the steam room. It’s small enough in size to be tucked away using very little space in a vanity, closet, basement, or an insulated attic, but large enough in capacity to provide steam for most residential baths. The Steam Generator comes factory assembled, carefully wired and tested.
